    just another usefull tip to share with anyone that does not know.

    if you one (like me) who does not erase messages or e mails here is a tip to scroll from top to bottom or visa versa.

    when in your messages simply type T or B to scroll to the Top or Bottom of your list

    hope its usefull

    Great tip. I think I've read it somewhere, but it never hurts to pass along the knowledge!
    As always, just my opinion...

    In addition.
    N=Next Email or Next Date depending on whether you are reading a message or looking at your list.
    P=Previous (same info as above)

    I found this in another forum...

    Typing Shortcuts
    1) To capitalize a letter with one click, hold down the letter key.
    2) To insert a period, click the Space key twice.

    3) Turn CAP Lock on by pressing the ALT key followed by the right Shift key. Turn it off by pressing either Shift key.
    4) Turn Number Lock on by pressing the ALT key followed by the left Shift key. Turn it off by pressing either Shift key.
    5) Type an accented letter or special character by holding the corresponding letter and scrolling left or right with the trackball.
    6) Insert the current date into a message or document by pressing the L key followed by the D key
    and Space key.
    7) Insert the current time into a message or document by pressing the L key followed by the T key and Space key.

    Messaging (E-mail and SMS)
    1) In e-mail inbox, press the S key to search for a sender or a word within a subject line, and any mail folder regardless of message was sent or received.
    2) Within inbox, access the complete list of messages sent by hitting the ALT key followed by the O key.
    3) Within inbox, access the complete list of messages received by hitting the ALT key followed by the I key.
    4) Within inbox, access the complete list of SMS text messages received by hitting the ALT key followed by the S key.
    5) Within inbox, access phone log by hitting the ALT key followed by the P key.
    6) Within inbox, access voicemail log by hitting the ALT key followed by the V key.
    7) To delete all messages sent or received before a specific date, highlight that date with the cursor, hit the BlackBerry Menu key, select Delete Prior and confirm selection.
    8) To enable automatic spell checking of e-mail messages, click the Options icon on BlackBerry home screen. Then click Spell Check and select the Spell Check E-Mail Before Sending option.
    9) To do a manual spell check, click the BlackBerry Menu key within a composed message and select Check Spelling.
    10) When a message is being spell checked, suggested fixes to unrecognized words can be ignored by clicking the escape key.

    Spreadsheet Attachments:
    1) Change the size of a column by pushing the W key.
    2) Go to a specific cell by pressing the G key.
    3) View contents of a cell by pressing the Space key.
    4) Search for text by clicking the F key, and then type the desired word.
    5) Switch to a different worksheet by pressing V and selecting the desired sheet.

    Presentation Attachments:
    1) Skip to the next slide by pressing the N key.
    2) Return to the previous slide by clicking the P key.
    3) Start slideshow by pushing the S key.
    4) Stop slideshow by clicking the Escape key.
    5) Switch to a new view of the slideshow by clicking the M key.

    Phone Functions
    1) Multitask while on phone calls by hitting the BlackBerry menu key during a call and then selecting Home Screen. You'll then have access to e-mail and other documents--though most BlackBerrys don't allow for simultaneous voice and data transfer, so Internet access is unavailable while on calls.
    2) Find specific contacts from your BlackBerry home screen by pressing keys for first and last initials, with a space between them. If more than one contact has the same initials, scroll to the appropriate contact.

    BlackBerry Browser
    1) Bring up the Enter Web Address field from any Web page by pressing the G key.
    2) Insert a period in Web address by clicking the Space key.
    3) Insert a back slash in Web address by clicking either the Left Shift or Right Shift keys and then hitting Space.
    4) Add an item to bookmarks list by clicking the A key.
    5) Bring up your bookmark list by clicking the K key.
    6) Refresh a Web page by clicking the R key.
    7) Display a list of the last 20 pages visited by hitting the I key.
    8) Open browser options with the O key.

    Back to Basics: Starts and Stops
    1) To put device into Standby Mode so keys cannot be pressed while it's not in use, hold down the Mute key for a second or two. Undo Standby Mode by holding Mute for another couple of seconds.
    2) If BlackBerry slows down, starts malfunctioning or freezing, always try removing the battery and SIM card--if the device has one--and waiting a few seconds before reinserting it. Ninety-five percent of the issues Aflac BlackBerry users experience are resolved by simply removing the battery, according to Genet.

    Dailing *#06# from the mainsceen shows your IMEI for both AT&T and T-mobile.

    Pressing the LEFT Alt, Left Shift and H button will show your Vendor ID, Platform, App Version, PIN, IMEI, Uptime, Signal Strength, Battery Level, File Free and File Total. Alt+LGLG will show your event log (which you can clear to make your bb run a little faster; press the bb button after ALT+LGLG, then clear log, and verify deletion). LEFT Alt, RIGHT Shift and Del will reboot your bb. I hope this helps.

    Entering LT then the space bar inserts the time whereas LD then space inserts teh date.


    ALT+N+M+L+L changes the EDGE bar into numbers
