This month’s official S60 newsletter included a nice little “tip of the month” column that highlighted the quickest way to add a carriage return (enter key basically) to your text messages/notes: just hit the 0 (zero) button three times. So simple, yet so effective. So that got me a little excited (that was something I’d been trying to figure out for ages), and thinking at the same time. Which resulted in the idea for this entry: the continually updating S60 phone shortcut post. Some of these will probably be pretty well known already, but I’m hoping it’ll be a nice reference for all. Got any cool shortcuts? Send them by mail or add a comment, and I’ll drop it into this post. Quick Carriage Return Hit 0 (Zero) key three times and wait or continue typing. Voice Activated Dialing Hold down the right softkey for 2 seconds. Task Switcher/S60 Alt-Tab Key Hold down the menu key. Switch Between Silent and General Profiles Hold down the # (pound) key. Only works on certain phones. Quick Mark or Quick Selection Hit the # (pound) key in a list to mark that item, or keep the # key held down while using the up/down arrow keys to select multiple items. Works in messaging inbox, contacts, etc. Read Text Messages (Out Loud) Hold down the left softkey. Only available on certain devices like the N81? Quick Open Web Browser Hold down the 0 (zero) key. Speed Dial Hold down the corresponding keypad number or hit the number and then the Send key. Voice mail is always the 1 key. Quick Dial Contact at SIM Position This is a tricky one. If you enter a number followed by the # (pound) key, it’ll automatically insert the phone number for that person stored on your SIM. Ie. 1# will show the first person’s phone number in your SIM directory, 2# would show the second one, etc…Not sure how useful this is unless you go around memorizing your SIM directory. Yeah, it’s kinda sparse for now. Send in those tips!
