    Shortcuts for full QWERTY keyboard BB's

    The first thing all BB owners (that have full QWERTY keyboards) should do is disable dialing from the home screen (phone > options > general options > dial from home screen = no). This enables the use of many shortcut keys. Here are a few to get the thread started, please post as many as you can think of:

    FROM HOMESCREEN/APP MENU:

    A - ADDRESS BOOK
    B - BROWSER
    C - COMPOSE EMAIL
    D - MEMO PAD
    F - PROFILES
    G - GOOGLE TALK
    H - HELP
    K - KEY LOCK
    L - CALENDAR
    M - MESSAGES
    N - BB MESSENGER
    O - OPTIONS
    P - PHONE
    R - ALARM
    S - SEARCH
    T - TASKS
    U - CALCULATOR
    V - SAVED MESSAGES
    W - WAP BROWSER
    Y - YAHOO MESSENGER

    FROM BROWSER (UPDATED 2/1/09):

    A - ADD BOOKMARK
    B - BOTTOM OF PAGE
    C - CONNECTION INFORMATION
    D - HOME PAGE
    F - SEARCH FOR
    G - GOTO WEBSITE
    H - HOMEPAGE
    I - ZOOM IN
    J - REFRESH PAGE W/JAVASCRIPT ENABLED
    K - BOOKMARKS
    O - ZOOM OUT
    P - PAGE ADDRESS
    R - REFRESH
    S - BROWSWER OPTIONS
    T - TOP OF PAGE
    U - FULLSCREEN TOGGLE
    V - SEARCH FOR
    X - TOP
    Y - HISTORY
    Z - PAGE DOWN

    IN MUSIC PLAYER:

    N - NEXT TRACK
    P - PREVIOUS TRACK

    IN CALENDAR (ADDED 2/1/09):

    A - AGENDA VIEW
    C - NEW APPOINTMENT
    D - OPENS THE DAY YOU HAVE HIGHLIGHTED
    G - GOTO DATE
    M - MONTH VIEW
    N - NEXT PAGE
    P - PREVIOUS PAGE
    T - SNAP TO TODAY
    W - WEEK VIEW

    IN A MENU - HIT THE FIRST LETTER OF YOUR SELECTION TO 'JUMP' TO IT. IF THERE ARE MORE THAN ONE WITH THAT FIRST LETTER, JUST KEEP HITTING THE LETTER AND IT WILL JUMP TO EACH ONE IN ORDER.

    ALT + BACK - TOGGLE BETWEEN APPS

    I know there are many more so please don't be shy. Who can think of more?
