I don't know about these as they refer to using a trackwheel. I recall seeing some of these in my instruction book for my 7100t.

Might work on my 8100, but not sure. I'll give it a try.

Yesterday from my 8100 I was trying to copy a url so I could e-mail it to someone. Could not figure out how to do it.

Just now tried his tips for copying [To copy and paste text, press ALT and click the trackwheel. Roll the trackwheel to select text. To copy the selected text, press ALT and click the trackwheel. To paste the selected text, place the cursor in an editable field, and then press SHIFT and click the trackwheel. ].

I simply pressed the trackball instead. Worked perfect.

So that's cool.

And I guess "THANKS" are in order.

I got it straight from the O2 site on the Blackberry. I travel to the UK frequently but live in the US and found it while surfing around. I've tried a couple of the things and they were helpful...
