    First. I want to explain the purpose of this post. It is to get people to learn how much more easy the keyboard is to used than the Trackpad or trackball. I learned this when my trackball broke on my 8330 and my trackpad broke on my 9650.

    These shortcuts will eliminate the need to use a trackballs or trackpads.

    Now here are the shortcuts

    I live and breathe by these shortcuts and use QuickLaunch to cover the rest. This allows me to keep as few icons on my All pane as possible, and put a few frequently-used apps in my top row for quick touchscreen access, like specific icons for my 2 BBM groups, Tiny Meter, Pics, and BeWeather (for the icon, as there are no weather slot themes for OS 7 yet). I have no desire to hunt through pages of icons to launch apps. For those things that I use infrequently, I have them arranged in a few folders on my homescreen. I have to drill down no more than 2 levels to get to them.

    Keyboard shortcuts FTMFW.
