Default short cut for text messaging?

Please Login to Remove!

Are there any shortcuts for initiating a text message?

I don't think you can disable "dial from home screen" on a 71xx.

Not that I'm aware of. I have my 7130 set up for the shortcut button to take me to the messages screen and from there I can click to compose. Not as quick as a home screen shortcut, but about the best that can be done on the 71xx series. For a great list of shortcuts, tips, and tricks, check out Stinsonddog's tip page: http://home.comcast.net/~tamsterra/index.html
