Default Any way to send a message without the trackwheel?

Please Login to Remove!

I dont think there is? Why would RIMM not make it possible to send an email without the trackwheel? Once the trackwheel goes, you cannot send emails. So you have to purchase another device. I guess I answered my own question.

I have the 7250, ver 4.1, Verizon.

You're correct. No way to send it without the trackwheel. As this is a benchmark of their OS and design, it's not THAT's one of the things that set it apart from other options.

It would be nice if there was a "wheel-less" short-cut. Once you learn to avoid the trackwheel, you almost don't ever want to use it. This was my main problem with the Sure Type berry.

A program could probably be written to accomplish this. But with the key-signing system, it's not as easy for random interested hackers to work on stuff like that.

This is one thing that has bothered me since day one as the trackwheel is one thing that breaks. I can do nearly EVERYTHING with shortcut keys on the BB EXCEPT send a message. I wish they would just make it like alt+s while composing one. Can't be a difficult thing to add.
