There are a lot of frustrating limitations when yer BB is traball-less. Trust me, i know. There are some models that have the "Dial from Homescreen" option to turn OFF and allows a multitude of 1 button options. Unfortunately, 8110s (like mine) don`t have this option, so yer kinda screwed as far as accessing all apps. My options are limited to only 4 or 5 apps, which can be quickly switched to by holding ALT and pushin BACK. On my phone, that only lets me go between Call Log, Browser, IM, Home Screen, n Messages. Gettin to my Memo Pad, FB app...even frikkin ALARM are not possible. Pisses me off! i feel so jipped because of my model not having more app-reaching capability w/o that god forsaken ball!!!
Other things i CAN do are some options with keys, depending on App. In browser, 1 is page top, 7 is page bottom, 3
is page up, 9 is page down. 2 & 8 can be used for accute scrolling after enabling "Select Mode" from Menu (hit "S" til u get it; all menu options can be scrolled thru n selected by hitting ENTER). There are other functions to each key, but it`s still aggravating that since theres no "TAB" keep u can`t even log into any accounts that require Name n Password (Select Mode won`t help). And if i wanted to turn off SafeSearch on Google, as an example, i can`t select that either. It`s completely annoying how little i`m allowed to do cuz of ONE damn lil piece!
Other ways to "sneak" into sone places is tricky, but possible, n kind of annoying...Getting to Pictures can be done by hittin Camera button on side
, then hittin Menu, select View Pictures. once that screens up, hit enter on 1st image (since u can`t scroll to any other) n once ur viewin it, hit Menu n hit N to go to Next.
Similar method for Music, but requires more tedious steps...
First off, get to Compose or Address Book by using switch app method, then start typin name of anyone. Once a name`s up, hit Menu, keep hittin A/S key til u get to "Add Custom Ringtone". *TRICKY PART* unless u plan on using and listening to hokey default ringtones, u need to make a new folder (Menu>New Folder; i named mine "f*** u phone" for makin things so difficult lol). Now, u gotta have yer SD card (hopefully u already had one & formatted, yer new folder will save here by default. "Save" is also default option upon creating folders and downloading stuff so just hit Enter). Put yer SD in a computer, open the [new] folder, and put everything u wanna listen to in it. Safely remove SD, put it back in, and retirn steps to the point of selecting Custom ringtone. [Sighhh]...MORE steps... hit Menu then hit P n select Play. Now, ur listening. to go to next song file, hit Menu, n Next should be 1st option. There ya go. **Side note, this is how u hafta go thru files to find the one u wanna use for Customs -- playing/hittin Next. VERY tedious, but it works. Your default ringtone can be selected in Menu during whatever tune is playin by choosing Set as Ringtone. To actually SET a tone for a Custom, u hafta hit BACK, then ENTER. Msg will say (ie)"xxxx.mp3 set"...hit Enter for OK.
If ur just listening n not wantin to set tone, just keep hittin BACK from Player screen.
Needless to say, i`ve spent waaay too much time figurin all this crap out, just tryin to keep this "smart" phone from bein completely retarded.
