Re: 8520 menu shorcut query



Chances are the Icons on your main page are not set-up the way you would like them. We are all different - so of course you can customize this as well!


  • Think about what tasks you do most frequently, or which applications you use most often. These should be the first icons you see when you turn on your BlackBerry. 
  • Move the icon by highlighting the icon and clicking the BlackBerry Menu button, and then choose "Move".
  • The Icon will now have a frame with arrows around it, use your trackball to move it up, down, left or right. 
  • Do this with any other Icons you wish to move until your page is exactly as you want it!

Re: 8520 menu shorcut query

I try the solution but it won't work. After I highlighted the shortcut and press the BB Menu.. It shows only the Switch application box. I think there is something in the options that are disable and i dont know what it is. Hope you can help me with this.
