    I'm sure a lot of you are like me, constantly checking too see how much free memory 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 hi escape once and its closed (no need to hit menu and close).

    Sorry if sme of you already knew this. But I thought it was cool and figured I'd post it for some newer users. Enjoy!

    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 4.5.0.44 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.
    Thanks for the tip! I have been reading this forum for months and did not know that.

    What are you doing to have 22MB free?? That is awesome! Mine seems to hover around 10 or so. I have tried many things but that's where it stays.

    Another option for those that have problems hitting the keys is to hold ALT with your left thumb and type E S C R. This will get you to the same information.

    Someone asked about the percentage of battery charge and this screen will show that too.

    To help with memory, some of you may not have heard this one. Hold ALT with your left thumb again and type L G L G. This will take you to the Event Log. Hitting your menu option gives you Clear Log. Choose this and select Yes. I have seen some very large memory come back if I haven't performed that in a while with a very long Uptime.

    Enjoy!

    New fire..I pretty much did a complete os wipe, removing all applications. Then I downloaded the apps I needed. Googletalk, google maps, opera mini, and some other little programs. Then I followed stoners guide to free up memory, I removed voice dialing, themes, password keeper and bbmessanger (don't use it). I'd suggest at a minimum following stoners guide if you wanna free up space. Hope that helps!

    So now that I have been using this shortcut consistently I did find one annoying thing about it. Sometimes I accidently turn the numlock on lol. So when using this just make sure to tap the shift key or alt key when you're done...

    You guys need to read my posts on memory. Nothing you are saying here about memory is correct. You do not need to check "file free" as it is really not showing you available memory, and you are wasting your time with battery pulls etc.

    Excellent. Didn't know this. Just tried it. Works perfectly.

    A question someone should ask RIM is why they build these shortcuts into their devices and don't tell their customers about them in some sort of a quick reference guide.

    Imagine if you didn't visit CrackBerry. You would never learn 1/2 of what your BlackBerry is capable of doing.

    I am in complete agreement with you wire, these helpful tips should be included with the phone somewhere. I got a tips and tricks booklet through tmo that gave me some great sms shortcuts. But it wasnt until i came here that i found out all these nifty little workarounds. The funny thing is this particular "help me" shortcut i found on accident. All i was doing was putting a capitol h in but i pressed too many buttons lol.
