Default Tour Shortcuts

Please Login to Remove!

Is there anyway to disable the shortcuts on the Tour? I wouldn't imagine there were, but I'm having a really tough time not throwing this thing!! I've tried to increase the keypad sensitivity but it doesn't really help. My main issue is whenever I try to send a msg (everyway except in BBM), I end up opening the switch app screen and its really getting on my nerves!!!

Maybe its switching from the curve, since this wasn't a feature, but it really bothers me!!

This is probably more of a venting thread, since I'm fairly sure that what I want can't happen, but its always worth the ask!

the switch app screen comes up when you hold down the blackberry button for longer than a second or two

Yes, that app switcher from the menu button worked on my nerves too. Someone at Verizon told me about adjusting the key sensitivity and allowing a break in period. Well it's been two months and it doesn't happen anymore or rarely if ever. But my "P" key still gives me a little trouble.

Oh, hey, I wondered why the app switcher came on like that. I didn't realize I was holding down the Menu button too long. I don't see a way to turn it off

One shortcut I miss, however, is being able to press the D button when in the Browser to go back to the home screen. I really, really miss that.

Press the H key to return to HOME Page.

Got to the Browser HELP screen for a list of shortcuts.

Sorry, I meant the main icon home screen, not the homescreen that is defined in the Browser options.
