    Is there a bb shortcut to lock the keyboard, instead of just scrolling down to select the lock icon?

    Yes, you can either make your right or left shortcut key on the side of the phone as keyboard lock or you can press ALT and ENTER at the same time.

    Im still looking for that vibrate shortcut, can anyone help??

    to completely shut down an application without having to use the menu, hold SHIFT button and press BACK button. this works great to make sure you close programs instead of just minimize them to where they are still running in the background.
    That must be specific to the Pearl. SHIFT-BACK does nothing on the Curve.

    Drat.

    Thanks for mentioning this, Pammy....I missed it. Nice technique!

    And here I thought it would take me months to learn all that!! The best tip I just read was how to highlight a list of messages so I could delete them all at once. I don't know why it didn't occur to me it would the shift key just like on a PC!

    On my 8130, I push & hold the # sign button to switch between loud & vibrate. Is this what you're looking for? HTH

    My wife turned off the icon labels (the words that appear when you roll over an icon). We can't figure out how to turn them back on.

    Just as a tidbit for 8830 users. You can use the alt & enter combo to lock the phone rather than scrolling to the key lock.

    All I'm looking for is to page up or page down in the browser while looking at a webpage....am I missing something here? All I see is how to jump all the way to the top or bottom of a page or scroll with the track bar. OperaMiniBrowser lets you page up with the E key and down with the X. It makes so much faster and its really the only reason I use that browser.

    Help!

    I have a rather lengthy conversation in bb messenger that I want/need to preserve. I have tried to copy/paste it but I can't seem to get it all highlighted to copy and paste to either memo or an email.

    If I go to Menu and select "copy history" it only copies part, and leaves out what I really want.

    How can I copy the entire portion of a bb messenger conversation, or just a particular part? I have looked here and on other forums but the solutions were not applicable.

    I'm using a vzn 8830, OS is 4.5.0.51

    I love the tips. I've had my 8830 for almost a year and can do pretty much anything on it but a refresher every now and then never hurts

    The "x" keyboard shortcut, listed on the first page, doesn't work after upgrading to 4.5.

    Is there a new way to see thumbnail view of a page?

    For the Curve (I have 8330) if you turn off Dial From Home Screen, the following are keyboard shortcuts for applications:

    Q - Unassigned
    W - Unassigned
    E - Unassigned
    R - Alarm
    T - Tasks
    Y - Unassigned
    U - Calculator
    I - Unassigned
    O - Options
    P - Unassigned
    A - Address Book
    S - Search
    D - MemoPad
    F - Profiles
    G - Unassigned
    H - Help
    J - Unassigned
    K - Keypad Lock
    L - Calendar
    X - Windows Live Messenger
    C - Appears to Be the Call from Address Book Screen incl. Use Once option
    V - Saved Messages
    B - Browser
    N - Blackberry Messenger
    M - Messages
    0 and $ are unassigned.

    There are 10 unassigned options (on my keypad at least)

    If anyone knows how to manually assign to other applications ie. camera, please share if possible.

    Not sure what you're looking for. Your Curve should be able to record videos right out of the box.
