Here’s another basic tip that many of you BlackBerry veterans will already know. As long as you have home screen dialing enabled, you can utilize the many keys on your QWERTY keyboard to serve as speed dials. If you prefer to use home screen shortcuts, then this will not apply to you. But for the rest of us, let’s find out how to quickly call your most-dialed numbers. The process is quite simple. First, hold down the letter you want to use as the speed dial key. After a second or so, a dialog box will ask if you want to assign a speed dial to that key. Say Yes, and you’ll be at a screen that looks like your address book. From here you can either pick a contact to assign with the key, or you can use the top option, Use Once, and enter in a number not in your address book. If you have multiple numbers assigned to a contact, you will be prompted regarding which one to add. You can also perform Address Book functions when in this screen.
