    2. You can change the keyboard layout from qwerty to awertz to qwertz etc. In settings, language and input, go inside enabled languages feature to find this option.

    Nice. This is worthy of a sticky on the forum! And also a downloadable pdf would be good.

    That was changed on 10.1
    Now, to get the scientific calculator you have to swipe on the calculator keys to one side (can't remember which one) .

    Just figured this out today on the 10.2.0.13xx build. Probably the same for other builds.
    If you use time shift in the camera and find several pics you want in the 'stream' (has happened a lot with pics of my kids) you can use the screen shot (hold vol up and down at same time) to grab multiple frames. Then just use the built in editor to lop off top and bottom and rock on. I've had a hard time choosing before and didn't think of doing this until tonight : )
    Didn't see it before so hopefully I didn't miss it on a tip list already : )

    I think that's a 10.2 feature. It works in the day or week view, not month.

    Yes this is a super cool feature that not many (if any) other phones have:

    Caveat: This ONLY works if you open a video via the Video app. If you open a video from the Photo app, this doesn't work.

    Another cool feature is that the video continues to play while you do a peek into the hub!

    I support BB10, NOT BB Management!

    10.2.0 -
    You can do a -> then up for next message
    You can do a -> then down for previous.

    Also in HUB to reset hub - swipe from top right corner down towards middle 3 times quickly.

    In the hub while reading a message, you can swipe to the right and up (it's like a sideways L gesture) to go previous message. Swipe to the right and then down to go the next message.

    From the BlackBerry 101 channel (C0001BBF0)

    TACKPAD-ESQUE SELECTION

    Back in the good ol' days we were able to select text by pressing shift and then moving the trackpad. Guess what? The feature is here, again, on BB10!

    Here's how: Place your cursor, then press shift and then swipe your finger across the screen, akin trackpad movements.

    If you use a Z, swipe outside the keyboard.

    Some report it working for 10.1MR, some don't. So leave a comment if it does.
