12 Amazing Tips for BlackBerry

• Navigate quickly around calendar views by pressing D for Day, W for Week, M for Month, and A for Agenda. For this to work, you'll need to set Enable Quick Entry field to No under Calendar Options.

• Deleting older messages is easy; simply click a date field and choose Delete Prior.

• Find any contact in your address book by typing out the contact's name or initials, separated by a space.

• When browsing the Web, make quick work of visiting favorite sites by pressing K to open your bookmarks. To add a new bookmark at any time, press A.

• Press and hold any letter in order to capitalize it. Often it's faster to do this than to set a mode or press another key first. To turn on CAP-Lock, press Alt + Right Shift (CAP).

• To move down a page while reading a message, press the Spacebar. This works on other screens, too. Moving back up a page is just as easy; press Shift plus the Spacebar at any time.

• Dial a phone number with letters (such as 1-800-WIN-CASH) by pressing Alt and typing each letter with the QWERTY keyboard.

• Use the Symbol (Sym) and Currency ($) keys to enter special characters not visible on the keyboard.

• To activate the backlighting at any time, press (but don't hold) the Power button.

• The Space key lets you enter in an @ symbol when typing an E-mail message. Press the Space bar twice to insert a period. The next letter will automatically be capitalized.

• Selecting special characters is simple; press and hold the letter key in question. Then adjust the thumb wheel up and down to move through the available choices.

• The Escape button is useful for exiting any screen, or to stop any Web page from loading.
