Default There has got to be a hot key to send a text message

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a hot key that goes straight to composing a text message

If I press 'C' it tries to compose a freakin email, no one emails eachother nowadays lol

You do realize you have a BlackBerry, right? It is the premier mobile email device on the market right now.

To answer your question, there's no shortcut key that I'm aware of. You could separate your email and SMS inboxes. Go into the SMS inbox and press the menu key, the first selection should be to compose SMS.

BB is with the times. Email is the premier electronic communication method. How many businesses have a number for you to text them on?

I do this pretty often. SMS limits you to 160 characters. If I need to send something lengthy, I email it. A lot of my personal friends have BlackBerry devices or mobile email devices including the iPhone or Windows Mobile devices.

If you use that can you still hold Q to change to vibrate?

And DC represent!

Actually, if you go to your contact list, and press the menu key you should have the option of emailing, SMS, MMS the person. This should work out better.
