Looking for another Shortcut on BB Curve

Whenever I am in my address book and on the FIND screen, I hate having to manually delete back through the last name I checked for, one letter at a time. It only takes a couple seconds, but isn't there a shortcut that will let me instantly delete ALL of the previous letters simultaneously? I have checked thru my Blackberry for Dummies book, as well as others, and have found nothing about such a shortcut. Nor is there anything on the FAQs on various RIM sites and on Crackberry.com. I would sure appreciate some help! Thanks.

I doubt that there is a shortcut key for this as you are in a search field, and any key pressed would be interpreted as a search value. Just holding the delete key down is a fast as I can figure to delete the search characters.

Man....you must be in a hurry! Smiley Happy

Hope this helps!
