    You don't. There is ones that are already set, however in order to set up custom ones, you'll have to wait until 10.3.1 is released, look into third-party app options or consider running a 10.3.1 leak which would allow for it.

    Yup, that's what I understood as well. Custom keyboard shortcuts coming in 10.3.1.

    I believe those shortcuts are for the Q10/Classic. They certainly aren't for the Passport.

    They will be with 10.3.1 for the Passport.

    We've already covered 10.3.1 in this thread. The OP indicated he was a newbie looking to create keyboard shortcuts on his Passport. Unless he's an advanced newbie running a leak, he doesn't have the option right now.

    Nope? Do you not have the ability to customize shortcuts though on 10.3.1? So, if you did want those exact shortcuts, isn't that completely possible?

    10.3.1 will bring the ability to add custom shortcuts to the Playbook. I'm using Passport SQW100-1/10.3.1.1151 & I have setup shortcuts to Facebook, Instagram, etc. See screen shot.

    That's awesome! You're going to be a frickin' BlackBerry Jedi.

    Be sure to check out the tips and tricks threads here in the forums. Both phones are going to be chock full of hidden gems, and each one is going to have some that are unique.

    Not going to lie, I'm a little bit jealous right now.

    Enjoy!
