    Hi everyone--last night I updated to 4.7.61. It went fine, no problems, but now for some reason one of the shortcuts doesn't work: the alt-s one that switches from email to SMS. I tried digging around to find out if the update altered the shortcut buttons, but couldn't find any pertinent info. I have the sneaking suspicion that the answer is going to make me smack my forehead...but until then, does anyone know what's going on here?

    I didn't even know that shortcut, so I guess I never lost it?

    Actually, none of the shortcuts work--alt-p, alt-t, alt-b, etc etc. Very odd...The alt key DOES work, I'm using it in sms messages.

    Probably just a small bug with the update I guess?

    The ALT+ shortcuts are working for me.

    ALT+P just opened my call log. ALT+S just opened my SMS log.
    ALT+I opened incoming messages log, ALT+O same for outgoing.
    ALT+V is Voicemail log. (Talk about almost useless!)

    I have no idea what +T or +B should do, but they don't do it for me!

    Are you doing this from within your Messages App?
    i.e. not from your separated app/folder for SMS/MMS or email only?

    Yeah sorry I stuck "alt" in front of t and b. But I did try alt-p, alt-i, alt-v; none of them work. Is there some "Disable Shortcuts" option that I can activate?

    I am not able to find a disable or enable function... and mine are working as well.

    I assume you did a battery pull and all that jazz?

    i know of at least one person that loses their alt shotcuts after a battery pull.


    Here is how to check if they are gone:

    Messages
    Menu
    Search
    Menu
    Recall

    That will bring up a list of your alt + [letter] shortcuts.

    Are yours there or gone? If they are, don't worry-you can add them back. In fact you can create alt shortcuts for alt + a-z!

    How to create ALT + Shortcuts:

    Messages
    Menu
    Search
    Search Type: Local
    Name: Fill in name you want to search for
    In: Any Adderss Field
    Service: Choose All Services
    Folder: All Folders
    Show: Sent and Received
    Type: Pick what type of message you want to search
    Options
    Save
    Title: Type a title for this saved ALT + Search
    Shortcut Key: Choose what letter to save to (ALT+Z for example)


    Now go into your message folder and hit ALT+Z (or whatever letter you picked) and you will see messages by that sender.

    You can edit these filters in a number of ways. Just look at the drop down boxes to see the options.

    This is how ALT +P brings up your Phone Calls. But you can use ALT+ J to bring up all messages from Jess for example.

    Does this make sense to anyone? Seems like a lot of steps but once set up it is really handy for filtering messages from a specific sender or subject. i never lose my save searches when i do a battery pull but i know of one person that loses his once in a while after a pull.
