While you’re viewing a web page on your BlackBerry Pearl, simply use the Browser menu to save that page’s address. By doing so, you can return to a page without manually entering the same address.

You can save a web page address in a couple of ways:

  • Page Address: This option allows you to view the web address of the current page through a pop-up screen. From this pop-up screen, you can save the page’s address on your BlackBerry Clipboard and paste it in as a memo for yourself or send it to yourself or somebody else via Messages (e-mail). Convenient, right?

    When you select Send Address from the pop-up menu, you’re taken to Address Book to select your e-mail recipient, and the rest is the same as sending a regular e-mail.

  • Save Page: Use this option to save the web address of the current page to Messages. A message appears with the Browser globe icon to indicate that it’s a web link.

    Scrolling to that entry and pressing Enter launches Browser and opens the page for your viewing pleasure. Saving a page to your message list has a different purpose than bookmarking a page. When you save a page to your message list, you can mark the page as unread, like an e-mail message, to remind yourself to check back later.

When you don’t have network coverage and you try to access a web page, you’re prompted to save your request. When you do, your request is automatically saved in the message list. Then, when you do have coverage later, you can open the same web page from the message list, and it has the loaded content already!

Pressing a letter key while you’re in a menu selects the first menu item that starts with that letter. Pressing the same letter again selects the next menu item that starts with that letter.
