    The BB Assistant is pretty smart but needs specific syntax to be accurate.

    I'm trying to figure out the most terse typing needed to create new or edit already existing 'things' on the Classic. 'Things' as in calendar, notes, reminders, contact info.

    Beside the BB help in the phone, is there a list of the most efficient way to do all these?

    Schedule an appointment for tomorrow 4 pm.
    Remind me to buy medical supplies at 3 pm.
    BBM Brian Fury Bout is on pal?
    Call Paul Phoenix at work
    If I were you, I'd be trying it out instead of asking for it here. What works for me with my accent and inflection may not quite get it for you.

    I was inquiring for typing not verbal commands. Meaning are there shorthand or abbreviations that can be used to shorten the typing.

    Something like...

    note groceries + lemon milk eggs butter toothpaste

    and in hopes it would setup the new note perfectly with the subject of 'groceries' and additional notes section containing all the items after the +.

    For new Calendar, shortest typing syntax so far that I can come up with is...

    event pool party doris sept 8 7pm

    of course you still can't just hit Enter and done, you are forced to tap Save on the screen to save it.

    Is there a shorthand for searches? Like when you are on the home screen and want to just type words to find a note or a contact or a calendar item?
