9105 Keyboard Shortcuts
 
The 9105 is the first BlackBerry device with the new keyboard design, similar to the traditional T9 keyboard most non-smartphones have. With such, having not ALT or SHIFT keys, the traditional BlackBerry keyboard shortcuts you knew in the past have very little effect on the 9105. Below, I've listed some gathered from RIM.

For starters, to find the "Help Me!" screen on the 9105, enter this sequence of entries:
Quote:

Press the voulme key: Up, Down, Up, Down, Up and then type 337777222777
The resulting screen should be entitled Help Me! and the first line in the column should be the vendor ID.
