Question What functions for ur convenience keys?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm still getting used to my BB 83xx. I was wondering, what is the most common "convenience key" function people use?
Many thanks.

Address Book on one ( I don't use Voice Dialing) and Switch App for the other.

I may consider replacing Address Book with VoiceNotes after 4.5 is released.

My right key is camera and the left key is voice dialer. These are the two things I thought I'd want the fastest access to when I need them.

If you use shortcut keys in your main screen, you can use "I" for ideamatrix.
