    The top 40 BlackBerry shortcuts

    Advertisement



    Margaret Genet, operations analyst at Aflac knows BlackBerrys inside out. In fact, she's nicknamed ‘technology concierge' because she can teach anyone how to be more efficient with mobile devices and applications.

    Most of her tips and tricks can be found by trawling BlackBerry websites and reading user manuals from cover-to-cover. But who has the time? On to her tips...

    Typing shortcuts

    1. To capitalise a letter with one click, hold down the letter key
    2. To insert a full stop, 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 D and the Space key
    7. Insert the current time into a message or document by pressing the L key followed by T and the Space key

    Thumbs up Re: The top 40 BlackBerry shortcuts

    Very helpful indeed. The shortcuts that let you insert the current time and the current date into a message with a few clicks are particularly cool.

    It's an issue with the site since it's not optimized for WAP browsing.

    It is a link under the text in the article-On to Typing and Messaging Shortcuts but before the reader comments. After that you have to turn the page a few more times.

    Thanks Hayden, these little things are what keep my addiction fed!

    Thanks! Was able to access in opera mini. Question..do you know how to jump to the beginning or end of a line? As opposed to rolling the trackball letter by letter?
