    Question 8700g shortcuts list needed (4.1.0.284)

    Advertisement



    I've searched, and found various pieces of info for shortcuts. But, I want a shortcut list for the 8700 using version 4.1.0.284. Seems some of the shortcuts only work with certain versions, and thus when I try them they don't work...

    I found one saying I could press 'm' from the 'home screen' and it should take me to messages. Well, as you can appreciate, that did not work, unless am just missing something. So, hit me with it...

    Some shortcuts are theme related also. You also have to have "Dial from Home Screen" turned off in the Phone Apps Options/General Options. On my 8700 with a Theme created with the Plazmic Theme Builder, if I hold the BB at an angle looking down on the screen from the top, I can see an underline under the short cut leter when the app that has a short cut is selected.

    Hope this helps

    I hit the hang up button which takes me back to the home screen and navigate to my email

    Or, on Zen I have my application list set to my middle convience key and click on that, pick my app and click on it.

    ALT+ESC (back) will bring up the active apps ribbon and you can get to any open app or the home screen also. There are 4 apps that are always on the ribbon, messages, phone, Browser and Home Screen. If you have BB Messenger installed it will be there also.

    Hope this helps.

    You know, I've been using my BB 8700g for the last 2 months and the above "trick" is fantastic!! I've been wondering how I can get to other apps without closing the one I'm in. Thank you!

    I agree the ALT-Escape trick is amazing, I can switch between whatever im doing and not lose my spot! I use it all day, every day!
