OS 6 Application Shortcuts on Pearl?

I'm using a Pearl 9100 3G with O.S 6, and I have chosen the "Application Shortcuts" option instead of the "Universal Search" option. I've been trying to find a list with the application shortcuts that can be used from the homescreen and I have found none. 

 

Are these shortcuts actually useful in this model? The only ones I could find were calendar, calculator, messages, help, lock (which is redundant, as I already have another key for this), stored messages and option. 

Also, the toggle vibrate key (#) isn't working anymore.

 

All of the lists I found were for the full QWERTY models, what about the half-QWERTY ones? Help please! Smiley Happy

Re: OS 6 Application Shortcuts on Pearl?

Hello Catalina and welcome to the Community!

 

 

Application Shortcuts Feature is primarily used for Core Applications(default  apps). The Universal Search allows a smartphone user to quickly and easily find contacts, calendar appointments, email, instant or social messages, make phone calls, launch applications, find help on the BlackBerry device and much more.
