    Re: Keyboard shortcuts for the BlackBerry 8800 smartphone

    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?

    The Pearl has a shortcut to switch between the default profile and the vibreate profile. Does the 8800?

    Hi, I cannot find a key to quickly switch profiles, from the active one to Vibrate, as in the Pearl. -- Thanks

    Re: Keyboard shortcuts for the BlackBerry 8800 smartphone

    How do I go to the top of an open text field. For example, I have a text field and when I press "T" to go to the top, it simply types the letter "T" instead of moving to the top. Manually scrolling through 1000 lines of text is way too slow for me. Again, this is in a text field which is editable. The new firmware does not allow me to view memopad files, when I click on the memopad file it automatically assumes that I am going to edit it, so I must scroll all the way down manually to edit it from the correct place.

    Also, how do I select ALL text in a memopad document? I don't want to scroll through a huge document.

    Re: Keyboard shortcuts for the BlackBerry 8800 smartphone

    noahbrick,
    It's in "phone" options. From the home screen, hit the "send" key, then the menu key --> Options. You'll find it there.

    Re: Keyboard shortcuts for the BlackBerry 8800 smartphone

    Thanks for the tip. I am trying to copy/paste some things from the BB Browser and it does not let me highlight some of the text (non-links, and non-text box). How do I copy/paste an ordinary text (i.e. news article from a webpage)?

    Hit your "K" button. That will lock it.
