I don't know if anyone else has seen this, but if you are in the now playing screen, and with one finger slowly move the volume slider, hit the home buttron WHILE sliding the volume. The volume will stop sliding, and a box will apear on the screen showing the volume level.The box reminds me of the volume box in mac os X.

I'm posting from my iPt, but I will try to post a picture when I can.

Very nice, never knew that existed. I have to tell you, I was nearly about to strangle you thinking it was another "didd u kno that if u duble clik home buttin twiyce,,," thread. :)

I played around with it about five times, it seems like this is a display only-- you can't change the volume with this. It's neat that this exists, but it really functions no use... well, unless I missed something along the lines.

Sounds great, but I can't seem to get it to work. I just go back to the home screen.

Please post the picture so I can see how it's done.

Ok never mind, I got it to work.
