Holding the search button (magnifying glass) will allow you to do more than just a google search. You can do voice commands from here. (Such as, dial beezy, or drive to burgerking). And it works alot better than the actual voice command function you get by holding the call button.
I just tried the long press on the search key and the only thing it allowed me to do was a search of Google. Could you please clarify how you can voice dial from this particular feature? I tried the tip of pressing the green key and voice dialing that way, but it was sketchy at best as to whether or not it would work.

There's an app called Advanced Task Killer. When I got my phone, the guy showed my how to get it right away. It's a little android man that stays on the top notification bar and you when you swipe the menu down you'll have an option to kill all apps that are selected. This works great for saving a little battery life as I have noticed that some applications will open by themselves.

Moving icons to other home screens ... the easy way

My girlfriend discovered this one.

When you need to move an icon from one of your home screens to another, but find it difficult to push the icon past the current screen's edge, do this instead.

Press and hold the icon you want to move. After your hand held buzzes (indicating that you have selected the icon to move or 'Remove')

Then slide the screen itself, not the icon, until you get to the screen you want then put the icon in it's new location.

This only works if you are moving the icon from a screen that has lots of icons.

I have had my Hero for almost 2 years and for the first time while I was texting tonight a little rectangular box came floating across from the top right side and ended on the top left over my previous messages. In the box there was a green phone to make a call, the contact symbol, and another symbol. I was already starting to hit send when it came on my screen, and once "send" was hit the box went away, and I can't figure out how I got that to happen. I have googled it and pressed every button on my phone, and can't duplicate it. I was typing the word "more" with the compact qwerty keyboard when it happened. Didn't know if anyone else has seen this before. I am so tired of this phone and about to upgrade, so its not a huge issue, Im just currious!!
