    I think if you have the short menu enabled then you can just select SMS/MMS then click the date it should default to Compose SMS.

    Yep, you're 100% correct just click the date and compose sms is already highlighted, just click it and it brings you to your address book. No need to go to menu and scroll to find it

    Or, there are 3rs party apps for free or some reasonably cheap that enable you to create sms shortcuts as some of the other stackers have already shared. You may also want to check out shortcutme or quicklaunch

    I'm not sure if this is what you want to know or not, but if you disable dialing from the home screen and then press C you can compose a message like that.

    Unfortunately - that "compose" shortcut is for e-mail.

    Actually, it seems to do whatever you did last with that contact. So for my contacts, some it wants to email, some sms, and some even call.

    Check ShortcutMe. It allows you to create your own shortcuts that are not only available from BlackBerry home screen but from anywhere.

    With ShortcutMe you can for example set it up to send SMS to someone by doing one of the followings from anywhere:

    1- Double Click left convenience key ( to open Compose SMS page)

    2- Double Click right convenience key (to open Compose SMS page with phone number of Sandy already in the TO field).

    3- Convenience Key + S (to open Compose SMS page).

    4- Convenience key + S + S (Open Compose SMS page with phone number of Sandy already in the TO field).
