Need Help To Navigate Curve Without Trackball
My trackball fell out last night at a concert, and was not able to find the pieces to it. I ordered a new trackball today but I want to be able to read my text messages until it comes in. I know you can use shortcut keys but whenever I try to follow the codes I am not able to because I have those keys set as speed dials for peoples numbers. What do I do? HELP!

From the calling screen... Menu > Options > General Options > Dial From Home Screen > No
As long as your Menu Button works.. you are fine. The letter at the beginning of a word in a list allows you to navigate to it. So Menu > O > G > D > Space Bar to toggle on and off... that will workNo longer a CrackBerry addict. Moved to Android - could not be happier!
I cant get to the options part. It's stuck on my address book because I can't scroll down. My 5 preset icons for my screen are in top order: address book, messages, email, facebookmobile, and alarm, and then of course the icon to move to all my applications. So if I push the button to the left of the green phone to get to the view of all my applications, I am still on address book. How do I get to options?

Mine fell out last night and disappeared somewhere in the driveway.
After you turn off dialing from the home screen, you can hit 'M' to get to messages, then the space key enough times to highlight a message below the one you want to read, press the 'U' key to move up the list of messages one at a time, and then press enter on the appropriate highlighted message.
It's the best I can come up with and will have to deal with it until UPS shows up with my new trackball.

Thank you d-drop!!!
There is nothing that can be done with the trackball that can't be done without the trackball.
Once you get to your icons, after disabling home screen dialing:
X=Windows Live Messenger
C=Contacts(Same as Address Book)
They want you to think that losing the ball means time for a new phone! Ha!
