    Welcome to PinStack quayman.

    Have you turned off the Dial From Home Screen option in the Call Log (Phone) App Options/General Options?

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Soooo nice, thanks for the tip, I love it. I just wish there was a fast way to put the phone in vibrate mode.

    Why not assign the Profiles choices to one of the convenience keys?

    Good idea, but I alrady have them assigned to things I use more often. I just liked being to hold a single key like I did with my Pearl for those occassions where I head into a restaurant or office.

    Before my Curve, I had a Pearl and was unaware that one button would put the Pearl into vibrate mode. How did you do that?

    you can lock you phone by pressing ALT then enter

    also if you turn off the dial from home screen feature it will allow you device to utilize the shortcut fields

    Re: Keyboard Shortcuts on 8300

    Hello all,
    just joined this site a couple of day's ago,as i got my first BB,the curve no less!!
    its awesome,
    but getting back to the shortcuts: Alt key+enter key = locks your unit
    shift+alt+H=help me(with your platform,app ver,PIN#,UMEI#,batt level, etc,etc)
    handy to have!
    any other shortcuts i find, i'll put it here!

    Also, if i wanted to upload a cool pic so others could use,where would that be?

    Holding down the mute key puts your phone into standby mode which also locks the keyboard. The only way to activate it is to hold the mute button again. Also while in standby mode the phone will still alert you to phone calls and messages

    just hit k for lock

    w or b for internet
    a or c for phonebook
    s for search
    f for phone profiles
    g is if for my google mail
    h is for hwlp
    k is for locking the phone
    l is for calender
    v for messages
    m for messages folder
    r for daily alarm
    t for tasks
    u for calculator
    i for applications
    o for options
    p for phone
    remember to go into the phone app and go to options and turn off dial from home screen.

    enjoy!!
