I decided to check up and see how RIM’s new official blog “Inside BlackBerry” was coming along. One of the writers over there by the name of Mark, who is the email expert posted some great tips on how to use SureType shortcuts. SureType is a great system designed by RIM to simplify and condense your keyboard. One of the first tips I offer new people coming to the SureType input method is DO NOT watch the display when typing. Trust me this will help you a lot when learning. Anyway Mark has written the basics on how the shortcuts work with the SureType keyboard. Here’s a quick example: You’re in your messages folder and you just scrolled all the way to the bottom and you don’t feel like rolling your trackball back up hundreds of emails, well all you have to do is following one of these shortcuts below.
Press 1 – Move to the top of the open message, or the top of the message list (newest message)
Press 7 – Move to the bottom of the open message, or bottom of the message list (oldest message)
Press 3 – Move one screen up in the open message / message list
Press 9 – Move one screen down in the open message / message list
Press 4 – Previous Day Open the previous message
Press 6 – Next Day Open the next message
Hopefully this helps out any of the readers out there who are using a Pearl or Pearl Flip…
