    There has to be a faster way to "Send Message"

    Advertisement



    Ok, im a newbie. My first BB was a Pearl for 2 weeks. Of course, I totally forgot Im in the defense industry and have to travel to sensative sites and a trip is coming up next week and cameras are a big no no. Picked up a 8700 in the mean time as I wait for the 8800 to drop. (Ugh, my fiance has taken control of the Pearl)

    Someone please tell me there is a faster way of "Sending a Message shortcut". The Pearl's dedicated MENU button makes it so quick and easy to go from left thumb MENU to right thumb ENTER in sequence (Since send is the default choice for MENU). Is there a 8700 combo of keys to use other then using the scroller? Please? I know the sidekicks I used to use had TONS of ALT-<KEY> shortcuts which made it litening quick for messaging.

    Heck, if there is, can someone help me with a list of Messaging/emailing shortcuts? I googled trust me, but I didnt come up with anything useful.

    ok ok. To set it up go to the home screen the press the green call button. Then in the phone log list press track wheel and select "options" / then "general options" / set "Dial from home screen" to No. Then save.

    Exit right out to the home screen then press "m" then press "c".

    If you were using dial from home screen before. Press the green call button from now on. That the best I can come up with... for now.

    I think thats great, BUT what I would like is to know how to get the menu to appear once i have finished typing the message. anotherwords instead of clicking the thumbwheel, scrolling to send and then clicking send......

    A big reason I like the trackball for the 8800 and for the future of blackberry is this exact issue.

    Unfortunately I don't think this can be done. The click accesses the menu from which you select your option. It is almost a necessity.

    The pearl was much easier to navigate through menus and the browser because of the trackball. Add a full qwerty keyboard and you've almost got heaven in your hands...

    seriously, doubleclicking the trackwheel is that much extra effort? I keep my right index finger on the trackwheel anyway when i'm typing, so it's really not that hard.

    Isn't send the default menu option (when composing a new message) anyway? Two clicks of the wheel and it's gone. I'm very active on a very busy mailing list with my BB and this has never been an issue for me in years of using various BB models.

    Jon01, the tip Hayden gave is for you to configure your BB so that you can get into Messages by pressing "M" from the home screen instead of clicking the trackwheel.

    So far, I don't think there is a shortcut key combo for you to send out the email after composing.

    I use variety and instead of clicking wheel twice............. I click the wheel and hit the return key. I think its a little faster and doesnt require that extra push.

    Re: There has to be a faster way to "Send Message"

    There is no short cut key or key combo to send messages. It would take more effort to use one than clicking the trackwheel and sending. It would have to be a three key combo to do it.
