    Quick way to SMS a contact?

    Advertisement



    Couldn't find this in the tips section, but let's say I want to text John S., so from the home screen I start typing Jo, his name pops up.

    Instead of pushing the menu button, scrolling to SMS John S. , then clicking the pearl, is there a quick shortcut to just start composing a text to the highlighted contact?

    I know when you are in the mailbox you just hit R on whatever message is selected to quick type a reply, wasn't sure if there was a quick shortcut to compose a text to someone. Thanks

    What do you think about this?

    Download "Quick Compose", set it to a convenience key, press the key and then choose the name of the person, then hit enter and type your message. That requires 3 key presses at the least, the shortest way I know of.

    Re: Quick way to SMS a contact?

    The Vodafone theme has a cool SMS Message line on the home screen. I love being able to jump straight into that folder, however, it would be great to be able to hit "c" when in the SMS folder and Compose a SMS instead of an email. I understand why "c" would compose an email in the Email folder. I have experimented with shortcut buttons in the SMS folder, but so far, nothing.
