    So I'm sitting at my sister's High School Graduation and just browsing the crackberry forums when I pressed and held the blackberry button! Lo and behold it works the same as pressing and holding the alt and escape keys! New discovery probably not but oh well it's more convenient.

    The Berry button trick was added in the more recent OS builds and is a fantastic addition! Makes it alot faster to multitask This works on the 8900 as well, after its updated

    What OS are you running? I believe the feature was added with .247. I am running .266 and have the feature.

    I am probably missing a simple answer, but how do I modify/change the app choices shown when I press and hold my blackberry key?

    They are apps that are running. I think I know where you are going with this and there is an app out there that lists all apps from a convenience key. I believe it's called Quicklaunch.

    Unless your OS is 247 or later, that's all it will do.
