    Thanks for the trick, I've only been on here since April, so I wasn't aware of it. Definitely a lot quicker than going to Options and Status.

    I got it to work on my pearl but you have to be pretty nimble with your fingers since the alt and shift keys are not together on the pearl. I think it's just as easy to go to the options for pearl users.

    Another option for those that have problems hitting the keys is to hold ALT with your left thumb and type E S C R. This will get you to the same information.

    Someone asked about the percentage of battery charge and this screen will show that too.

    To help with memory, some of you may not have heard this one. Hold ALT with your left thumb again and type L G L G. This will take you to the Event Log. Hitting your menu option gives you Clear Log. Choose this and select Yes. I have seen some very large memory come back if I haven't performed that in a while with a very long Uptime.

    Enjoy!

    Which is the up arrow on the right?
    All I see is Delete and Enter.

    Howdy!

    Purchased first Blackberry several months ago, LOVE IT!! . . . but have had one **** of a problem. Within past month, twice I have found in the am the phone not working, a message "SIM Card Rejected". It was working the night before with no problems. Have taken out battery and SIM to "reboot", but to no avail.

    In the end, had to go to the T-Mobile store, purchase, have them reconfigure another. Have never heard of a SIM card "burning out" or being rejected like this, anyone I ask, no one knows. T-Mobile only says go get it replaced, but this is twice now within 30 days and am not confident it won't happen again . . .

    Any ideas?

    Greatly appreciate the feedback,
    NSI

    Glad to help you guys out, ive actually contributed something!! And yeah, i knew the right shift key would work but holding the left is much easier for me lol. I am also an avid memory checker lol. I figure i might as well ask here, im running 4.5.0.44 and started with about 24 mb of free memory. When waking up this morning i was at around 22...is this somewhat normal? I kinda had a leak like this before doing to upgrade.
    I'm still finding it awkward, even using the right shift key - but that's coz my fingers are enormously fat!

    Thank your lucky stars you HAVE 22 MB free! With my VZW 8830, my max I have is 12 MB free, no matter what I try (and I HAVE tried deleting anything extra!). The key is to regularly clear up messages, browser cache, and to exit apps via the menu rather than the ESC key.

    On my 8330, I disabled dialing from the home screen so I could use keyboard shortcuts. Pressing 'O' will bring up the options but if you leave it on status it will bring up your signal, battery life, free memory, PIN, etc. It's not as detailed as alt+shift+h but it is easier just to press 'O' if you want to check out the basics. It only really works well if you just leave it open (i.e. pressing the esc button instead of closing it completely) so this could be an issue if your battery sucks

    Not a problem, glad to help. This shortcut caused me to move my options to the bottom of my apps. Don't really use it much anymore

    So heres a question i figured would be decent to post in this thread. Lets say you do a battery pull, and look at your free memory..how much do you have? And lets say you wait 24 hours and look at your phone again. How much has leaked? Im just a bit curious as to whats normal and whats not. If you know the answer to the above question please post your current os.

    On the pearl u can press and hold ALT key and then press shift key and then press H key consecutively. No need to play finger twister to press all 3 keys at the same time.
