Ok ok - let's all try to get along now. I pissed the OP off in another thread...and I apologize. He didn't know about that key sequence as many others don't - no big deal. He's got a good solution now and we should just all be calm, before someone locks this thread as well.
@ BD - there is a list of BB shortcuts you will find quite useful here, if you search it out here...I just don't remember where, but many keys on the homescreen are actually shortcut keys if you disable the universal search feature on the homescreen!
