This tip comes courtesy of CrackBerry. Yesterday Adam Zeis went over how to swipe between messages on your BlackBerry. This is a useful tip, so I’d like to share it. It essentially cuts down on the time you spend processing new email, since you can swipe to the next or previous message, rather than backing out to the message screen and selecting the message. There is a drawback to this, though. Here’s something I didn’t even realize: you have to enable the swipe between messages feature. That’s easy enough to find, though. It’s in the Messages app, under Options. Scroll down to the Actions section and you’ll see a check box labeled Swipe Between Messages. If it’s already checked you’re good. If not, check it and save up. The function is simple enough, though there is one drawback. If you swipe and get to a threaded message set, the feature stops working. You’ll get to the screen showing all of the messages in the thread, and you can use the J and K keys to scroll among them. But you can no longer swipe to get to the next or previous message. You’re basically stuck there; you’ll have to back out to get to a different message.
