    Re: The top 40 BlackBerry shortcuts

    Ok it worked in opera mini

    I guess the site is just not bb-friendly, which is ironic. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Any typing, not just emails. To get to the beginning or end of this line, I would scroll the trackwheel up, down, or left, right. Is there a way to just jump to the left or right of a line of text (not top or bottom).

    Re: The top 40 BlackBerry shortcuts

    If you try to access the article Hayden links to with the BB browser, you're redirected to a CIO.com home page and not to the shortcuts article. Opera Mini will get you there, as a number of folks noted, and you can access it using IE, Firefox or Safari on a desktop.

    It is kind of amusing that you can't access a BlackBerry tips article using the BB browser.....

    Re: The top 40 BlackBerry shortcuts

    Maybe I am a true BB addict but I only read pinstack on my BB. One of the reasons I have one is to keep up with information away from the computer. Can someone post the article in a more BB friendly way. I don't have the opra browser.

    One suggestion: Get Opera Mini. It's infinitely better than the BB browser.

    Re: The top 40 BlackBerry shortcuts

    For everyone who had an issue reading- Hope this helps

    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.

    Re: The top 40 BlackBerry shortcuts

    The entire list won't work for every berry, but there is still alot of gems hidden in there.
    For example inserting current time into email

    ( Insert the current time into a message or document by pressing the L key followed by the T key and Space key.)

    Works on my curve and its really handy.

    About the only tip Im questioning is the last one- if you have an issue pull battery AND SIM CARD??

    Anyone ever had to pull their SIM card? And does this still apply to new Berry's like the Pearl and Curve?
