    It doesnt bring up true address book, clicking on a contact will call them instead of viewing contact details.

    heres one, while in sms inbox press "m" to get to your email messages.

    Fair point. But it's certainly not the call log. And you can edit by pressing the BB button. Good list though so far guys.

    That's what I meant, not the call history...however, if you press escape after that, it will take you to your call history...

    If you read the first few pages of the manual, it gives a laundry list of different shortcuts available on the Tour.

    I love shortcuts. It seems every time I wonder onto a shortcut thread I always learn something else.

    Hey all, there's most of these and WAAAAAAY more in one of the Blackberry 101 tutorials:
    BlackBerry 101 - Beginners Guide to Keyboard Shortcuts | CrackBerry.com

    Didn't know the i & o for zooming!

    Btw just pressing -not holding- the send key from anywhere opens the Call Log / Phone App. I hide my Phone icon - why do you need it?!? (Shocking but true: I bet a bunch of you have it as 1 of your "fave 6" in your Home screen bottom dock...)

    For Message list, Space is Page-Down. (Actually it is also in Browser, App World in description, many other Apps, etc)
    Shift+Space is Page-Up.

    T & B work in Browser for Top & Bottom too.

    Scrolling photos full-size, P & N for Previous or Next.

    Entering web address, Space is Period, but Shift+Space is a Slash.

    Entering email address, 1st Space is @ subsequent Space's are Periods.

    From Home and Icon screens, holding W calls Voicemail.

    In Phone Options under Voice Mail, you can add your vm password.
    TIP: Add a # at end of your password to speed it up.

    In Browser, G is "Go To"

    I always knew ALT+Left-Shift was Number-Lock.
    It took me months to realize that I could also just hold down ALT with my left thumb to Number-Lock until ALT is released.

    Still shocking that BB has no shortcut in Messages to open a new text message!

    Are you listening, RIM?

    I'll check out the QSMS App I've been reading about...

    not sure if this was posted but if you:

    hold the ALT key and scroll down, you can skip like 6 messages at once while scrolling.

    Holding the Shift key and scrolling down (or up) will highlight messages.

    that's actually PAGE UP/DOWN...it takes you to the next whole page


    holding the Shift key and scrolling down (or up) will highlight messages.
    or left and right if you only want to copy/paste a section...

    Thanks for some of the additional shortcuts. I always like learning new ways to make my BB use more efficient.

    Don't forget the all important
    alt-right shift-del to force a reboot of the phone. I almost never do an actual battery pull.

    i thought i read this somewhere but can't find it again.

    does anyone know how to program shortcut to place : 's after words
    without having to push "alt - k - s" button every single time?

    On my old 8830 there used to be an option to enable keyboard shortcuts or something along those lines. With this option enabled, pressing various buttons on the home screen opens different things, like O = options, V = saved messages, M = messages, etc.. I don't see this option on the Tour. Did they take it out or can someone point me to it?
