Default Alt shortcuts stopped working in main message screen - help!

Please Login to Remove!

all of a sudden I can no longer use alt-s to get from the main message screen to SMS inbox. alt-i, alt-o, alt-p don't work anymore either.

I recently installed Google maps...but I think these worked even after that...other non-alt shortcuts still work, T, B, etc.

any suggestions to get this going again?

The Homescreen shortcuts don't use ALT.....

If you have 'Dial from Homescreen' set to no under your phone options, you should be able to use just the letter for the shortcuts (M for Messages, etc).

I've had the 8830 for 2 weeks now - my first blackberry. The first week I had it I could use ALT-S from the main inbox screen and it would take me to the SMS inbox (I keep them separate), as indicated in BB "help". Then for some unknown reason it quit working a few days ago.

Yes, that is correct, those shortcuts should work FROM the MESSAGE folder, not the main homescreen.
