The BlackBerry is the smartphone king of shortcuts here are some favorites
Who doesn't love a good shortcut? Doing things the long way is the like paying retail, why do it if there is a better (cheaper) way. A while back I wrote about Auto Text/Word Substitution on the BlackBerry and there were some great comments from the community sharing their personal favorites.
I thought today I'd write about some of my favorite shortcuts on the BlackBerry smartphone, not necessary just though the Word Substitution method, but also a couple of old time keyboard combinations that some may find new to them or a good reminder for some of the old time BlackBerry users.
Built-in short cuts through Word Substitution:
mypin - will show your PIN in a message. Very useful if someone email or SMS you asking for your PIN.
mynumber - will reveal your phone number, a good feature for people like Bla1ze who never uses the "phone" part of your BlackBerry you may not remember what your phone number is.
LD - inputs the current date into a message
LT -inputs the current time into a message
myver - great if people are hitting you up on Twitter or BBM wanting to know what BlackBerry handheld OS you're rock'n
Here's two more Word Substitutions that I use quite frequently:
