Default keyboard shortcuts

Please Login to Remove!

Are there keyboard shortcuts on the 8830 for the two follow?

1. To lock the keyboard

2. To lock the "alt" key, say if you are typing a lot of numbers in a text file.

Thanks in advance for any help!

To lock the keyboard: Atl + Return

I don't know about locking the Alt key, however.

I have not see anything on the 8830 but I am sure the shortcuts of the curve should work. Give it a shot and see what happens.

If dialing from home screen is turned off, you can press K to lock the keyboard.
