By Robert Kao, Dante Sarigumba

Part of BlackBerry Curve For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Using your Blackberry Curve is so much faster when you know the shortcuts. When you’re at the BlackBerry Curve Home screen, use these keyboard shortcuts to quickly pop open an application. (Make sure the Dial from Home Screen option is turned off in Phone Options.) Not at the BlackBerry Curve Home screen? Simply press Alt+Escape (the arrow key to the right of the trackball or trackpad) and then select the Home icon to switch back to the Home screen.
