Default Can I add new icon or shortcut?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to add a new icon to the home screen or a shortcut? For example, I'd like to be able to one click to the create SMS message screen.

thanks

Thats strange. Maybe in the OS I am running. But my device has the SMS Icon by default which I actually hide.

he's not talking about the sms mail folder, but a macro to open a new message with a single keystroke.

The only thing I am aware of they may or may not help you, is from your home screen, press the "M" button to pull up messages. Once you are in messages click "C" to compose. Check out Stinsonddog tips here. Shortcuts on page 7.

Or you can assign one of your left side or right side convenience key to messages.

Maybe someone else knows another way to get just what you're asking.
Goodluck.
