Default Use Curve with keyboard only

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

A strange one, but I need to be able to use my 8300 while it is inside a waterproof pouch. The obvious problem when it is in a pouch, is that the trackball is un-usable, apart from being able to press it.

I have seen the various threads around, listing the keyboard shortcuts available, and how to disable dialing from the home screen, but I have not found solutions to being able to select options such in pop-ups (save/cancel, etc), or more importantly sending an email (how to actually perform send!), moving around text within an email which is being drafted.

Maybe it is not 100% possible, but I hope it is! Perhaps there is a way to use the volume buttons as rocker buttons for up/down within menus/text?

Thanks for any ideas?

Richard

I don't think it's a strange question at all. Actually it would be cool to be able to use the side bars for controlling up and down browsing, menu selecting, etc.

Please check Accessories. Maybe there is a pouch that is waterproof that will enable you more use of the trackball
