How To Quickly Scroll To Your Most Current Message ON Your Blackberry?

How do I quickly scroll to my most current message, when I have found that my Blackberry has been rolling around in my purse all morning without it's cover? Well I am ashamed to say that I didn't know the answer for 3 years as a Blackberry owner, but I finally found out this week! 

Do you ever find that your Blackberry scroll button has you about 2,000 emails back, and you have to scroll your way up to the top with the scroll ball to get to your most current message?  Isn't that the most annoying thing?

I remember talking to a Realtor about it almost 3 years ago. I asked her if she knew how to scroll to the top, and she told me she didn't,but while she is driving, she has her teenager scroll to the top for her. Is that considered slavery? Well, anyway, who am I to pass judgement!

Seriously though,aren't we all so darn lazy when it comes to reading owner manuals?

In the past, I have found myself slapping that scroll ball in a frenzy for ten minutes trying to get to my current message. Well I will save you scroll ball slappers some extra time, the next time it happens to you......


Get ready for this:  

How To Quickly Scroll To Your Most Current Message ON Your Blackberry?

Press T for Top, to get to your current messages.

Press B for Bottom, to get to your oldest messages.


Hope you find this little tidbit helpful!

Hi Mona - This is a great tip!  My husband has a Blackberry, and I will let him know about this.

Thank you Susan.  I'm embarrassed to say that I should have found out sooner, but at least I finally did, right!? Hopefully I will save him some time, it can get very annoying! :)

Haha, I'm glad I could help.  And Gabe, you are very funny!  I could actually do that!  :) Always a heckler in the room! :)

Posted by Mona Montanino over 9 years ago

Mona-thanks for the tip...never new that...of course with my Blackberry Storm there is an up or down arrow that does the same thing.  I tried it your way and it does work, but first I have to push the menu button, then the show keyboard button, then the "T" or "B".  Always something new to learn and it's nice to know more than one way of doing things.

Mona, I thought there must be an easier way and now you gave it to me.  Thanks, you made my life easier!

Another thing I discovered.  It works when you are in your Facebook application, and you are reviewing the news feed or status updates, as you scroll down to everyone' status, and click more to continue reading, you do not have to scroll up with your scroll ball to get to the top, just press T! :)  It works!

Hi Mona, Something new I just learned about my BlackBerry. Also you can press P to go to the previous days message and N to go up to the following days message. So for example you want to check something from January 20th just hit P a few times.
