You can perform several basic actions with just your voice or fingers on your Atrix 4G’s touchscreen. Consider your everyday operations with these smartphone options:

  • Dictation! You can speak into the phone as an effective, quick alternative to using the onscreen keyboard.

  • Use the Swype keyboard for rapid text entry.

  • Press and hold a key on the multitouch keyboard to confirm that your stubby fingers have selected the correct character.

  • Quickly put the Atrix 4G into vibration mode by pressing the Volume down button until the phone jiggles.

  • When you’re on the phone, press the power button to lock the phone and turn off the touchscreen.

  • After initially touching your finger on the screen, use the magnifier to precisely move and locate the cursor.

  • When downloading updates or new apps, or for faster Web browsing, activate the Atrix 4G’s Wi-Fi. This trick is particularly useful in areas where 3G or 4G wireless is not available or to avoid data surcharges.

  • Use the Search soft button to look for items on the phone, on the Internet, or in a specific app.
