    Smile BlackBerry Diagnostics / Hotkeys

    Advertisement



    Hello all,

    I've compiled a list of useful shortcuts for BlackBerrys; you need to do most of these from the homescreen unless stated otherwise. If you have any others, please post and add to the list! I wrote this list when I had a 8310 Curve; I have since upgraded to a 8900 Curve and haven't tested these on that device.

    ALT + NMLL = Signal Strength in dBm instead of bars
    ALT + RBVS = View HTML source in BB browser
    ALT + RBLD = Forces data structure rebuild when in address book
    ALT + VALD = Validates data structure when in address book
    ALT + ESCR = Shows system status / IMEI, etc
    ALT + SHIFT + H = Same as above
    ALT + LGLG = SHows device event log which you can edit / delete / copy in to an email
    ALT + (RIGHT) SHIFT + DEL = Reboot for most devices (Thanks Gots2beme!)
    ALT + VIEW = Shows RefID for the item you are currently in
    ALT + CNFG = Shows advanced options when in the Enterprise Activation screen
    ALT + ESC = Swaps between applications like ALT+TAB on Windows (Even 3rd party apps)
    ALT + P = Shows phone call log from within messages folder
    ALT + Enter = Swaps input language in text field or home screen

    To insert your phone number in to a text field, type mynumber<space>
    For you device info, type myver<space>
    To get your device PIN, type mypin<space>

    You're welcome! In the last two years I've migrated from a 7290 -> 8100 -> 8800 -> 8310 -> 8900 as my I.T. work mobile (quite lucky in that sense). I'll chip in with a few tips if possible....

    Just wanna add that ALT-(right)SHIFT-DELETE will indeed work on the 8310 for soft reset. I use it all the time!

    Don't forget

    LT space - for current time and
    LD space - for date

    Both in a text field.

    Sweet..I knew a few of those guys..But awesome on the rest. When you switch signal meter to dB is lower or higher better? Or wait, is it closer to zero better? DOH

    That list looks very useful indeed - anybody got any idea how to enter them on the Storm?

    ok, I discovered
    (!?123) + ",(!?123) + \,(!?123) + ",(!?123) + \

    brings up the device log which is the one I needed for now - will try to work on some more "translations"...

    (EDIT: Hold (!?123) until it locks, then you can just type " \ " \ MUCH handier...
