    iPhone expert Joshua Dubois demonstrates how to do a screen capture on an iPhone.

    Josh Dubois: Hi! I am Josh Dubois, and today we're talking about the 3G iPhone and the Software Release 2.0.

    Right now I am going to show you how to do a really cool trick on the new iPhone. If you want to do a screen capture of whatever you have on the screen, simply hold down your Home button, and then just then click that button once. And what does it do? Go to Photos - Camera Roll, and sure enough there is a screen graph.

    Now what do you use this for? Well, it can be used for a lot of different things, but one of the things that it can be really useful for is if you are having your iPhone behave really, really weird and you want to show the Apple tech support exactly what it's doing, if you can get the phone to do that function right then, then you will be able to take in that picture and show exactly what your phone is doing when it's acting weird. It's still really cool trick I learned for an iPhone.
