Assigning Convenience Keys On Blackberry 8700

Comments

Blackberry Convenience Keys
Sometimes the simplest things make the biggest difference. New features on the Blackberry 8700 like the 312Mhz Intel processor and brighter and larger screen are nice but one of the more useful features are the two convenience keys that you can use and personalized for quicker access to common applications. By default the front convenience key is assigned to open the browser bookmarks and the side key to open profiles options.

To change the default keys, do the following:

1. Click on Options –> Screen/Keyboard.

2. Scroll down to “Convenience Key Opens” field and highlight one of the options.

3. Press in on the thumbwheel and select Change Option.

4. Select a program from the list and make sure to Save upon exit of Option screen.

    Great tip! Wasn’t sure how to find a shortcut to getting messages.

    Thanks for the info. It would really be helpful if one of the convenience keys could bring up the Home screen since you can’t get there otherwise one-handed without backing out of every open program. Is there a way to do this?
