    Is it possible to create a shortcut to a specific section inside the system settings? For example, I would like quick shortcuts on my home screen to the "Sound" and "Data Usage" sections in the settings.

    Well, it's easy to do if you switch to a different launcher - Nova Launcher: http://market.android.com/details?id...oilsw.launcher does exactly what you're looking for and there's a free version that you can try out.

    Yes, you will have to download a launcher like Nova, Apex, or any of a handful that will allow you create shortcuts.
    Example: shortcuts>activities>IOTHiddenMenu
    ***Be careful what you do here!
    Or you can try numerous others.

    I just downloaded to my phone and will give it a try tomorrow and will report back. In reading the description it seems a bit of overkill to create a few settings short cut. Hopefully I can turn off most of the features and create the 2 or 3 simple shortcuts to inside the settings i want.

    I tried Nova launcher, yes it will allow me to do shortcuts with long press but replacing the touch wiz interface/launcher to create a simple shortcut to settings is a bit of overkill. I guess shortcuts it can't be done at this time. When they get CyanogenMod working properly I'll switch to that and I think the launcher it uses allows shortcuts so I will wait to do a phone make over till then.

    I found some widgets that do some of what I want. One thing I can't find is a widget to turn mono sound on and off: Settings > Accessibility > Mono Audio (probably not much demand for this but I could really use it).
