    8800 disable "dial from home screen" ??!!

    Advertisement



    Am I going insane or is there no obvious way in the menus of options to disable "dial from home screen." The manual claims it's an option in the general options, but I don't see any "general options" on my bb 8800. Grr. Any pointers?

    Noahbrick, open your phone application then click to options/general options and that's where you'll find it.

    Okay, thank you for the clarification. Now....I had thought there were shortcuts from home screen -- like press/hold B for default browser, press/hold C for compose. Even with "dial from home screen" disabled, pressing and holding B or C brings up speed dial confirmation menus. Are those shortcuts gone?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ generally, pressing and holding the keys brings up speed dials.

    If you just press the M and release (don't press/hold) it will bring up messages. Haven't used 8800, so not sure if they have changed any or not.

    M = messages
    L = calendar
    A = Address Book

    And so on....

    When I go to Phone the only option is to Edit Speed dial list.
    I don't see an Options or General Options.
    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Oh no! Sorry I'm on the 8700.

    I think the BB help instructions on this can be confusing:

    1. In the phone, press the Menu key.
    2. Click Options.
    3. Click General Options.
    4. Set the Dial From Home Screen field to No.
    5. Press the Menu key.
    6. Click Save.

    When it says "in the phone," it means when you have the phone dialing menu up. On my ATT/Cing. 8800, that screen is labled "Phone Log". When you are on that screen and press the menu key, you should get a fairly long menu. "Options" is near the bottom. Click it, and "General Options" should appear. At least that's how I find it on mine.

    Hope this helps!
