There are no shortcuts to compose SMS (or compose anything else) on an 8100.

There probably is one out there that no one has figured out yet. It would be a little easier.

There's a shortcut to compose a new email. Open the messages application and hit the "L" button. I don't think there is one for new SMS. It would be nice though.

quick compose in messages is "L" dunno bout SMS. I heard some themes give you an SMS only msg box. Maybe it'd work there.

while in the Mail folder(s), rather than pressing "L" simply press ENTER while a dateline is highlighted. this will open a new message, with the cursor ready at the To: field.

for the SMS/MMS folder, this action will move you to the Address Book for you to select the (first) recipient of your message.
