I'm sure a lot of you are like me, constantly checking too see how much free memory you have and your exact battery charge. Well I just discovered this a few minutes ago. Hold Left Shift, Alt and H at the same time. This will bring up a "Help Me!" Screen. Not only does it show your battery and "file free" memory. But also your current OS, PIN, uptime and some other useful info. Simply hit escape once and the "Help Me!" screen will be closed (no need to hit menu and close). Keep in mind using this shortcut may accidently turn numlock on, so just tap the shift key once or twice after using this shortcut and you will be good to go!!
Sorry if some of you already knew this. But I thought it was cool and figured I'd post it for some newer users. Enjoy!
*update for all pearl users*
If you want to access the "Help Me!" screen just hold Alt then press E,S,C,R !
Thanks! That was really good info and I had not come across this earlier....it worked on my verizon 8830 also. FYI, either the left or the right shift key will work.
Glad to help you guys out, ive actually contributed something!! And yeah, i knew the right shift key would work but holding the left is much easier for me lol. I am also an avid memory checker lol. I figure i might as well ask here, im running 220.127.116.11 and started with about 24 mb of free memory. When waking up this morning i was at around 22...is this somewhat normal? I kinda had a leak like this before doing to upgrade.
Hello all. First post and brand new to smartphones. I just tried this out and got the info but my battery indicator went from bars to 123. What does that mean? I pulled the battery and when it reset the bars were back. By the way, this site is great and I have learned a lot already.
