    8700G Shortcuts (from home screen)

    Advertisement



    I've only had the phone for a few days and already i am getting tired of rolling the trackwheel from top to bottom to get to different applications. is there a way to make certain keys a short cut for an application?

    For example, if i press the letter B it will take me to the browser?

    I don't find the thread with all the shortcut right but I'll post as soon as found...
    But something that could help is holding alt while rolling the trackwheel to get it vertically

    Hope this helps

    UNLESS it is for a BETA OS, it's at your own risk and I won't support it

    macleem, B will take you to the bottom of the email/website etc. T will take you back to the top. If you click on the link in my signature for Tips N' Tricks it will give you lots more to have fun with.

    Re: 8700G Shortcuts (from home screen)

    There is a post that I created somewhere on here (maybe in the 87 series forums) that has the homescreen shortcuts listed (there are prob a few other posts like that too).

    The only downside, is u must disable calling from the homescreen in order for those shortcuts to work.

    I am mobile right now or I would attempt to find the thread.

    Also, if I am not mistaken, the shortcuts are only for the preinstalled applications on the device, no 3rd party software. Only have the convenience keys for 3rd party.

    Here is the list that N8 referred to (and developed). I will add that if you have the 3rd party application Pocketday (found on BB Shop link above), you can set up shortcut keys for third party apps too. A nice feature.

    Re: 8700G Shortcuts (from home screen)

    I'm bored:
    A: address book
    S: search
    D: memo pad
    F: profiles
    R: alarm
    I: calculator
    O: options
    L: calendar
    M: messages
    K: lock device
    N: bb messenger

    Think that's all, and think its the same on 4.1 as the 4.2 OS.

    Also, on mine, E opens ramble which I never knew of until just now. Too bad I only use ramble as a backup.

    okay i dont have too much of a problem disabling the call from Home Screen option disabled. As long as i can use a hot key to get to browser,messages,pictures then im happy. I too downloaded RIM instant messenger but i cant seem to locate the icon for it.
