Re: Q10 BlackBerry Keyboard Shortcuts

From the phone app, all calls, missed calls, a scroll down reveals tabs for several buttons for numbers you assign. Close enough to speed dial for me. Advantage, name and number appear on the button. Thanks, BBQ10.

Re: Q10 BlackBerry Keyboard Shortcuts

Seriously, can someone from Blackberry advise when these shortcuts will be added!

 

j and k when reading emails - critical for following a thread

u key when reading emails, next unread

phone speed-dial from ANY screen (hold down a key calls that number)

 

with the above shortcuts fixed, I will like BB10 better than BB7. until then, I miss my bb7

[ Edited ]

I am on 10.2.1.2102 and pressing and holding any key with a "Quick Dial" number assigned dials this number. This works from any screen.

It is not needed to go to the phone app first as this was the case in previous OS 10 versions.

 

Also, the "u" key works for me as well to jump to the latest unread message.

Yes, as stated above.

 

Here: 

Add a contact to your keyboard speed dial list

  1. In the Phone app, swipe down from the top of the screen.
  2. Tap The Settings icon > Keypress Speed Dial.
  3. Press the key on your keyboard that you want to associate with the contact.
  4. Tap the contact that you want to associate with the key on your keyboard.
To call a contact from your keyboard speed dial list, on the home screen, press and hold the key that you associated with the contact.

Re: Q10 BlackBerry Keyboard Shortcuts

I upgraded to 10.2.1.2102 and it seems I can initiate speed dial from any screen, but "u" key doesn't work (nor does "j" and "k").

 

To be clear, when in the message list, or reading an email, u jumps to the next unread email, and j and k follow the thread up/down.

 

by the way, the slide-out/slide-in of messages when using n and p (next and previous) looks nice but takes too long. that type of transition should be optional.
