    You have 2 shift keys on the bottom row of keys, a Left one and a Right one

    So they mean "Alt + Right Shift + Delete"

    So far only on .247.

    Great tips, guys.
    Its on the releases after .247 too.
    In msgs press R to reply or L to reply all. If your are on BES press I to file the msg. My personal favorite is while looking at all the msgs hold down shift and scroll thr trackball over the msgs to highlight them all. Then hit the del key to delete a bunch all at once.

    In order to press K to lock I think u first have to disable dial from home screen in the gen options section of the phone screen. Once u do that then u have these shortcuts from the home screen.
    A = phonebook
    B = browser
    C = compose
    D= memos
    F = phone profiles
    H = help
    I = applications
    K = locks the keys
    L = calendar
    M = messages folder
    N = BB messenger
    O = options (theme dependent)
    P = phone
    Q= toggle btwn vibrate and current ringtone
    R = alarm
    S = search
    T = tasks
    U = calculator
    V = saved messages
    W = media net browser (if u have berry weather then W will launch that app instead of media net)

    OMG It's been driving me crazy not being able to CAPS or number. Thankyouthankyou.



    Definitely a keeper and a fave... do it every night before bed and randomly during the day.



    So... how do I get my little hands on .247? I want to be able to turn of 3G (it's constantly switching 3G to Edge where I am and so calls get dropped and sound quality's crap... if I'm just on Edge, quality's great.) I briefly searched on forums and did Google search to no avail.
    XD or Frud- .247 isn't the 2G/3G switcher. Its .282 look at the top of the bold 9000 discussions and I think the latest os is posted there.

    This isn't necessarily a bold feature but....
    Change number of rings before going to vm (AT&T only):
    call *61*+1xxxxx*11*tt# where xxxx is ur vm number (goto phone menu, options, vm to see number) and tt is time in seconds u want phone to ring. 5 seconds = 1 ring. Range is 1-30

    While listening to music
    Press and hold the up volume button 2 seconds to skip to next track.
    Press and hold the down vol button 2 seconds to rewind.

    This works even while its inside your holster.

    Dry Your Device with Silica Gel: If you've dropped your BlackBerry in water, dry it out with silica-gel packets, which often come in shoeboxes. This also works with silica cat litter, which is generally labeled as crystal.

    Select Special Characters: Press and hold a letter key, then move the thumb wheel up or down to get the appropriate character,

    Stop a Page from Loading. Press the Escape button to keep Web pages from loading.
    Brilliant! Always hated having to use the symbol key but now I have to learn my favourite symbols. Brilliant none the less!

    Glad to see this thread kickin around There are definately some awesome tips I picked up in here.

    Just a couple I came across that I haven't seen;

    in BBM to close a convo - select the user, and press DEL
    On any GSM phone (Not only the Bold) - hold the * key to lock the device (if the feature exists), hold # to go toggle between vibrate and previous profile obviously, you need to have dial from homescreen enabled

    ALT+B does NOT deliver beer to your door I know this, It's friday and I've been pressing this for hours....to no avail :P

    Please keep them coming!

    I mean like if you are trying to dail 1 866 cingular for example and it isnt in your contacts and you dont remeber what three letters are attched to each number on the phone. Thank you for the positive thought I was just reading this thread and when really smart people get blasted it is sometimes scarey to admit you have questions
    hold down the ALT key and type the letters. when you hit dial it will dial the numbers for you.

    It will still work with it disabled - just an fyi. I use it daily

    Just post something you learned about your Bold that would help others.

    I'll start...

    If you're phones battery ever runs down to the point you cannot make calls other than sos you can circumvent this by going to Options, Advanced Options, Wireless Update, Check for Updates. This work around will turn your antenna back on and let you make calls. I read about this little trick on another thread somewhere.
    This was fantastic! I cannot stand when I can't make phone calls, even when the phone is plugged into the charger! It would make me wait 15 minutes before it had a little juice to be able to turn the antenna back on.

    Is there a way to navigate from homepage when the trackball gets stuck? It has happened a few times now where I can't navigate because the trackball doesn't scroll down and without touchscreen, you're pretty screwed - I think.

    my best guess would be to switch the applications manually-hold down the alt and escape key. you'll see the option for the home screen.
