Turn off annoying shortcuts

I have a Torch 9800, running BB 6 budle 292___ on Rogers Wireless


Is there a way to turn off some of the shortcuts that drive me crazy??

Some shortcuts like the alt-del in BBM to irreversably clear the entire message input field are annoying, but I can live with them. They come in handy very occasionally, but usually just result in me accidentally loosing a massive message I've just typed.

But other ones like when I'm using sms messages, trying to scroll backwards through the characters of messages previously sent immediately exits the message back to the main message menu... It's the most frustrating thing, because I want to get to a specific part of  the message, for example if I want to copy it, I have to touch the exact correct place on the screen, instead of being able to get there with the track pad...
