If on a call, is there a shortcut to go straight to homescreen?

I am on a call.

I go into an email account.

then open an email.

Then open the attachment to view the image.


I then need to go to texts or some application from the homescreen.

Normally I hit the "end call" button which goes straight back then, but obviously this would kill the call.

So, I have to do Escape,Escape,Escape,Escape....


Is there some means to go staight to the homescreen?  btw, I did try holding down Escape to see if that works.  IT doesn't.

Please use plain text.

You have a couple of choices. 1) Press and hold the BB menu button,  which will bring up the application switch screen. Choose the home screen from there. 2) Press and hold the alt button then hit the escape button to get to the same screen. Hope this helps. ~ecm
