I'm new to Blackberry 6.0 and whereas I certainly appreciate many of it's features I'm struggling to find shortcuts and workarounds to make my life simple. I'm confused because doing simple things like opening an sms message now takes me longer than it did with my old version 5.0 smartphone.
For openers. Is there a way to delete, hide or add trays? To be honest in my day to day useage all I want is one tray (logically "favourites") the rest can go hide. I find that the sensitive optical pad keeps shifting my trays along and its really annoying. Why can't I have a shortcut on my screen or device for that matter that opens an application without having to scroll around all the time?
I know its a new operating system but this seems fundamental.

you are complaining because you do not like the behavior of the current trays (meaning, shifting left and right will switch to another tray whereas you do not wish that).
This complaint is only about that theme, which is the one provided by RIM when you bought the device. Fortulately, all you have to do is look for another theme that will behave differently. You can look directly in AppWorld in the "Themes" category. Or you can look here for dozens of themes : http://forums.crackberry.com/f227/
but I am curious, what was your previous device?

I want to use my phone, not get a PhD in customizing it. I went to your link and couldn't make any sense of the information there--I followed a half dozen of the threads and they might as well have been talking Urdu.
I want basically the theme that came with by Curve with only one tray (all). How do you find that?

Thanks for that. I started there and got confused so I came here and got even more confused. None of the theme names read like "boring, stogy old-guy", and none of them that I've seen so far mention dropping to a single tray.

Yes. This is nuts. My torch screen flies all over the place. I just want my icons where I left them. You only need new trays for extra icons like the ipad not the same ones. A bb doesn't need trays. Its impossible to find a theme without trays. A search returns nothing. <Inappropriate Content Removed>

I dislike the trays. I found a quick solution:
From anywhere in the OS:
1- Press the END key once (red end call key)
2- Double press the BB key and POW- you are there.
Whew- so glad I figured this out!
