Welcome to the CrackBerry forums.
There is a section on tips and tricks to help you maximize your BlackBerry's potential.
The feature I enjoyed discovering the most was Application Shortcuts. Your device is probably preset for Universal Search. However, you can switch it to Application Shortcuts by touching your menu key (BlackBerry to left of trackpad), selecting Options then click on Universal Search and the drop menu will give you the Application Shortcuts option. Hit save and you are all done.
What this does for you is it allows you to launch a bunch of apps from one keystroke on the keyboard. First of all, you don't lose Universal Search you can still call it by typing "S". Here are my favorites:
A - launches the address book
L - launches the calendar
B - launches the browser
M - launches your Messages
V - displays your saved messages
W - launches the weather
U - launches the calculator
You can also assign any person on your contacts list to speed dial by just holding down a key. A menu will pop-up and ask you if you want to assign a contact to speed dial. This is a feature I use daily and I love it.
Enjoy your new BBMy BlackBerry. Just love it, love it, love it.
