shortcutsHi again, last week we told you some shortcuts in Blackberry home screen. Today we will let you learn more useful shortcuts in message on your Blackberry phones.

While in a message, you can press [R] to reply or press [L] to reply to all. You can forward a message via [F]. When the message list, you can press [Enter] or trackball to open a message. To compose a message, you can press [C]. You can press Shift+Space to move up a screen and Space to move down a screen. To quick move to the bottom of the list, you can press [B] and [T] for the top of the list. Usually, these shortcuts are enough for my daily life. But if you need more shortcuts, here's a list of all shortcuts in messages.

As we all know, Blackberry uses [M] as the shortcut for message, but there's no shortcut for SMS and MMS folder when they are separate. I will also tell you how to quick enter SMS folder. The first is move the SMS folder to the position on homescreen so that you can easily access. But it's hard to reach the folder when the trackball doesn't work well. :( Another way is press [M] to enter message folder first and then press [Alt]+[S]. It's faster and more convenient than the first way. The last one is that when you've installed Super QWERTY, you can set a shortcut for message like m, enter SMS folder once and press END key to quit. The next time you enter message via Super QWERTY, it will automatically enter SMS folder. This is useful for those who use SMS all the time.

That's the end of today's tips. Blackberry is very powerful in shortcuts. We will continue to share our knowledge on Blackberry. See you next time! :)
