Somehow today I managed to turn the flashlight/ torch on and for the life of me couldn't (can't) figure out how I did it, or how to turn it off (without shutting the phone down).

I haven't downloaded any apps for it or as far as I know have any installed. So can anyone tell me how I managed to turn it on and how to turn it off for future reference?

Thanks!!!

The Galaxy S doesn't have a flashlight option without an app and then it still just brightens up the main screen.

Are you sure you have a Galaxy S i9000?

Accessibility is pretty self explanatory. If you look through the options available, you'll see that they are designed to make the device easier to use for people with difficulties. I.e. The most obvious one is LARGE TEXT for people who are visually impaired. You can also add to the accessibility options with apps from Google Play.
