    Curve shortcuts

    Advertisement



    For those who prefer to minimize the use of a trackball navigating through menus.
    I personally prefer this because of my heavy use of email, sms, messenger, browser.
    Example hit "m" anytime to open mail or "b" for browser, "n" for messenger.

    Downside is you wont be able to dial from home screen. Not really a biggie since you can bind "Right or Left Convinience Keys" for "Call Log".

    To enable this go to "Call Log" hit "menu" then "Options". In "General Options" disable "Dial From Home Screen".

    Here are the shortcuts.

    C: Address Book
    W: Tmobile browser thingy
    S: Search
    D: Find
    R: Alarm
    F : Change Profiles
    T: Tasks
    B: Internet Browser
    U: Calculator
    N: Blackberry Messenger
    K: Locks Device
    M: Main Messages Folder
    O: Options

    Edit:

    i : AIM
    G: Google talk
    Y: Yahoo Messenger

    Re: Curve shortcuts

    Thanks--I have added to my list from yours. I'm always very interested in BB shortcuts. My previous phone, a Nokia, had 6 "Hot" keys and access to various menus that provided a lot of flexibility and instant access. Was initially very disappointed with the Curve as it lacked these keys (Curve does have two keys). Then I found these shortcuts and am happy again . Use these a lot--don't want to take credit for them but have checked most of the phone and browser shortcuts out and use them considerably. I've added a few more--always looking for the "unabridged" list for the Curve. I've created a memo that I can easily access for these shortcuts as I still don't have all of them memorized. Don't really need the hot keys much except for camera or something like that as P will take you to a screen where you can dial.

    Music Shortcuts:
    n - Next Song
    p - Previous Song
    Enter - Pause/Play

    Tip: set one of your side convenience keys to access the media player. Hit it once and it will pull your music player up so you can easily switch songs. Hit it again and it will go back to the Media menu so you can view photos & etc..
