    It reallly inconvenient having to go to the ipod everytime to change songs. It be great if I could just use the volume up or down to change to next songs.

    If your device is sleeping, double click the home button and basic ipod controls appear. Or you can use your headphone controls.

    You're welcome. It's funny how many people don't know that haha. Also, with iOS4, that trick will control whatever audio you're listening too. iPod? next song, pause, etc. Pandora? skip song, pause.. you get the idea.
