    There's a pretty good list of common keyboard shortcuts on various threads including this one:

    Thanks for the info. I wish they would make it a key that has something to do with the app. Unless "n" relates to BB messenger somehow.

    Re: shortcut for BBmessanger

    Thats weird, cause when I tap my "N" key from the home screen it automatcally opens up my "Address Book" and began searching for names that start with N; and if I hold the "N" key for a few seconds it ask if I want to "Assign" a "Speed Dial"

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ N opens up BB messenger for me. I would say that the reason why it is assigned to "N" is because "B" opens up the browser. If the first letter in the program's name is already taken up then another one has to be used... I.E. "L" for caLendar, "R" for alaRm, "U" for calcUlator, etc. Makes sense to me. I do wish they were assignable though. I have many keys that aren't used but they could be. It should be in screen/keyboard right with convenience keys.

    This seems like the likely story. I, too, wish they were assignable... one of the few things I miss from my treo days.

    If you use the Dimension Icon theme, or the Dimension Today theme when you scroll over an Icon, in the App Name shown, if a shortcut is available for that theme is available, the letter is underscored.
