    Other than put my phone in standby (which is not muting it). How does this button work as a mute?

    DURING a call, it functions as a mute call button, same as other phones. But it works as a mute button only while on a call.

    Bonus Tip: I NEVER use those mute buttons. The news has often broadcast embarrassing conversations famous people have had while on the phone. The problem: the people thought the phone was on mute when in fact it was not. Thinking calls were muted, the people spoke frankly.

    So to prevent myself from ever making that mistake I never press the mute button.

    Bonus Tip: Many phones put on mute ONLY mute one side of the phone. If someone mutes their phone, beware that they can still hear you even though their end of the phone sounds "dead."

    Bonus Tip: In Washington D.C. they train employees that if they want to have a private conversation, instead of muting the phone, they should unplug the handset at the cord. It works and is easy to do. To get back to the caller, they simply plug the handset back into the receiver.

    soundspeed,

    It also acts as a pause button when listening/viewing media

    I always use the mute button on my 8700, always works fine. Same with my 7250.

    And I have put people on mute and have said anything and everything.

    That's cool, but for me all it takes is one mistake in a lifetime to regret relying on that mute button.

    can you reprogram the mute button to do something else?

    I think it's useless, because the letter O/P is also a mute button during a call.

    Well, I suppose it turns the screen off too, but does that matter? I have two top side buttons on the 7130g, and I never use either of them!! (One is screen dim/off/on, and the other is phone call mute.)

    I like the idea of being able to re-program it. Is it possible to make the mute button put the blackberry into a silent mode?
