Default how to switch application quicker?

Please Login to Remove!

i know about Alt+ESC, while only pop up all the applications running, and the highlighted one is not always the previous one. I am a longtime palm user, and I love the way telemaster works. Is there any keyboard shortcuts or hacks to do various application switching things? such as "back to the previous one".

And, can I designate specific keyboard to activate application just like speeddial?

Thanks for your help!

The Convenience keys can be change to open a program you want.

Go to Options > Screen/Keyboard

Scroll down and you will find the settings for the keys.

As for your other question, I dont have an answer for that sorry.

Thanks for your help. but the convenience key is only one key, couldn't I designate more keyboard shortcuts to open applications? e.g. I may want long-press "B" to open Browser, long-press 'G" to open Gmail, etc.

If you turn off dial from homescreen there is a lot of these already programed into the phone. Have a look at Stinsonddog's Tip Site:

Down the bottom you will find a PDF for the 8800, everything you want to know is in there.
