Cannot Assign shortcut Key !

Hi, I am using the blackberry bold with AT&T. So whenever i press the 1 key from the home screen, instead of start dialing the number it goes to media net browser which is very annoying. Since i live in U.S, i press 1 then the number e.g. 13103334399 n then i save the number in my contact list... But since 1 gets me to medianet browser i cant do it anymore... Anyone know how to change or reassign the keys ?

Re: Cannot Assign shortcut Key !

Have you trued pressing and holding the 1/w key to dial it? You might have Homescreen dialing turned on.

 

On your BB, press the green Dial key > Options > General Options > Dial From Homescreen = Yes, and SAVE.

 

Now you should be able tap the 1 key to dial.

Re: Cannot Assign shortcut Key !

I actually do! (: I have the same phone same company. So, click the green call button, and then the bb button for menu. If you scroll down it will say 'view speed dial list' scroll down to the letter 'w'. It must say media net, so you can just delete it and leave it blank (: hope that helps

Re: Cannot Assign shortcut Key !

It doesn't help. You can't put web addresses in the Speed Dial List.

You'll notice the OP already reported back their (successful) outcome, and subsequent thread resolution.

Re: Cannot Assign shortcut Key !

apologies in advance for hi-jacking this thread.

 

i am from malaysia, southeast asia and i have recently bought the blackberry bold.

 

i have a similar problem where-by i am unable to reassign my #1 key as it is stuck as voicemail.

 

of course i am able to set my voicemail to a particular number, but when i dial it, the name that appears is "voicemail" and this is slightly annoying.

 

can anyone offer any advise on how i can get around this problem? thanks a lot in advance.
