    It's Power and Volume Down at the same time. Be sure to hold this for two to three seconds.

    Yes, that is how it is in stock Android, but that doesn't work on the Vivid.

    Well, I'll be...Power and Volume down DOES work! The important piece of info that was left out was to hold the key press combination for the 2-3 seconds. That's easier than Power-Home because you had to get that combo just right. Interesting...

    Well, sorry for leaving that part about the duration out, all right? But yes, Power and Volume Down. I wouldn't lie to a forum, I wanted everyone to have as much fun and mods as I do with this phone as well. :-)

    I switched to this phone from an iPhone3gs and this is so much better and both methods have worked for me but I noticed that when you use the "Power-Home" option, you get a shutter sound but not when you do "Volume down-Power".

    I just tried it, the Power Home combination, it seems more difficult, but hey, it works, kinda.

    folks, it depends on if the Vivid has been updated to ics. ics standard is volume down and power. GB users the power home combo. Hope that helps.

    Pretty much instant for me. I hold down the power key, then tap the home button. Running stock ics, rooted.

Since I'm in a good mood, I'll share an HTC Easter Egg: Go to "dialer" or "phone" and type "*#*#3424#*#*" and there ya go. You're welcome. ;-)

    I slide my finger from the search button to the home button at the bottom of the phone and it takes a pic and sends it to gallery. and thanks for the"easter egg"! pretty cool!

    No, I didn't notice that. I don't spend much time studying screenshots.

    Yeah, sorry about my last post, I've just been on edge lately, I'm worried for my secret Vivid... but yeah, it's not stock, Sense or the Vivid's stock ROM doesn't have a number in the battery icon.

    While holding in the power button press your home button. Works for me as you can see. Stock rom, obviously not rooted.

    This has already been covered, did you read any of the thread? For the HTC Vivid on Gingerbread: Power + Home. For the HTC Vivid on Ice Cream Sandwich: (Power + Home) or (Power + Volume Down for 2-3 seconds). And on different, custom ROMs, there could be other button/captive combinations.
