Hidden Commands

Is there a list somewhere of all know hidden commands like "/"/ for memory logs, and the one for the signal strength indicator?

Re: Hidden Commands


I had not heard of the /// command.

The two I know, is the lglg command from the the home screen, (I cannot get this to work on the storm)

and if you go to status, call the keyboard you can type test over the status screen and start a

diagnostic test.

Re: Hidden Commands

Also from the Enterprise Activation Window

ALT + AGNT = Advanced Handheld Agent. Gives the ability to reset the agent from the device.

Re: Hidden Commands

Do these Pearl commands work on the Storm also?




My Blackberry Storm has become a useful business tool, but it doesn't keep my office clean. For that, I turn to an outstanding San Diego janitorial services company.
