To be honest. You really don't need all those Icons. Take advantage of having your full keyboard. Just about everything you need has a key associated with it. For instance B=Browser, A=Address, M=Messages, C=Compose Email, U=Calculator, etc... To accomplish this and become more efficient in the use of your new BlackBerry you need to turn HomeScreen Dialing off. Just click your Green Phone button, Click BlackBerry button, scroll down to options. Then select General Options and turn "Dial From Home Screen" to NO.
I have NO idea why people would want to use the keyboard to start dialing when all you have to do is hit the Green Phone First then Start typing the name.. I mean it's only 1 extra click. That's if you actually use your BB to talk instead of message communication
.. I hate talking on the phone
