I just got the 7100g, and I cannot do Alt+o to view outgoing messages! Alt+i still does incoming, but I loved Alt+o (I could then use 'delete prior', and it would delete the sent messages from the handheld but leaves them on the server). Help....anyone know how to view outgoing only on a 7100g?

I find myself frequently having to make a phone call in the dark (like in my car at night) on my 7290, and I've gotten into the habit of pressing the phone button because the backlight key is hard to find in the dark. The problem is, the phone button takes you into the phone app and puts the cursor in the call list, so you have to scroll up to the dialing area in order to dial numbers. Turns out that the space key, which also opens the phone app, puts the cursor right into the dialing area.

The event log shortcut is pretty great. Now I could actually free up some space when I have the IM+ running on the background. It would be really great if we have a list of shortcuts on a .pdf file for every BB.

All,

Applies to 7290 (at least?!). Did not see this tip elsewhere...

A. Tip for Deleting Multiple Messages from a Sender
(1) Whilst in Message List, scroll to message from sender in question
(2) Select Menu->Search Sender
(3) List changes to show all messages from this sender
(4) Use any of the multi-message deletion tips above (e.g. Delete Prior) to delete the required messages

I find this useful for deleting regular messages I get from specific sources.

B. Use Menu->Search Subject ...
...to do the same for all messages on a similar topic. Useful for those long winded conversations

C. Use Menu->Search ...
...to do some pretty powerful searches before deleting!

Hope someone finds this useful.

Thanks
Neil

Default 7100g keyboard shortcuts?

I didnt see any mention of this, and I was wondering if it's possible to set up the keyboard shortcuts that I had on my 7510. On the 7510, I was able to jump into different programs from the main screen with a touch of a keyboard shortcut ('M' went to messages, 'P' went to the call list, 'U' opened the calculater....)

I cant seem to recall how I set it up on the 7510, and I cant find those settings on the 7100G.

Open the phone application; go into Options / General Options; set "Dial from home screen" to No. The shortcuts on the main menu will reappear.

Unfortunately, there is no "Dial from home screen" option on the 7100g. I do recall that from the 7510. Does anyone know if this is the same on the 7100t?

Yes, none of the 7100 series devices have the Dial from home screen option. One of my complaints (which I reiterated yesterday in a WES session on the BlackBerry interface).

There is no "option", but it works...I guess you just cannot turn it off. On my 7100g, when I start pressing numbers from the home screen, it starts dialing.

Hold down the half moon while you type LGLG. This brings up the event log where you can clear events (frees some memory) or view them or copy the contents to mail to someone.



Mark, what events can be cleared out. If i delete anything, will this mess up the device?

Is there a way to do a quick page up, page down when you are in "edit" mode in a note, to-do, or calendar entry? Obviously you can't do "t" and "b" because it will just type those letters. I tried half-moon+b and half-moon+t, that didn't work either..

If you want to send someone your phone or PIN# on the BB.....Compose an email and in the body of the email type mynumber, then press the space bar and it will give you your phone#.......To get your PIN#, type mypin, then the space bar and your PIN# will appear. This is alot easier way to find out your PIN#, instead of going to the Options icon, then Status or going to the Help screen (Alt-CAP-H)

Lots of good info here, THANKS
I'm wondering the same... any shortcut to show battery %, similar to the ALT+NMLL shortcut for signal strength???

Great FAQ section!!!

Thanks

The number has not been programmed into your SIM card.
if you have version 4 handheld OS;
From the Home screen =>
Options => SIM Card => Phone Number => (wheel)Edit SIM Phone Number
(enter your mobile number)(wheel)To Save.

Alternatively you can put your SIM into a reasonably modern mobile phone with a SIM manager and populate the My Number field that way.

Is that on version 3.6 handheld firmware?
I do not recall seeing the option to change the number until version 4.

Yes, just reset your Auto Signature, here is two ways;
From Desktop Manager => Redirector Settings [general Tab] =>
Type in your chosen Auto Signature text.

[With version 4 handheld code]
Messages =>(wheel)Options =>Email settings => Enter you text into the Auto Signature Text field.
