    When I look in my camera roll, there is a picture of one of the instant message conversations. I must have done it by accident. How did I do that?

    If you push the home button and the sleep/power button at the same time the screen will flash and take a screenshot.

    I don't even have to hold the home button on mine. Just the power down for a few seconds and release. You'll see a flash across the screen and suddenly it will be in your picture roll.

    Hold the power/lock button on the top of your phone down for approximately 5 seconds. It'll say "slide to power off".

    Yeah, he knows that. Drewskie was asking Jackie how he/she turns of his/her phone, because holding the power button will lock it or turn the phone off if held for a longer period of time. So I don't see how it could take a screen shot.
