Blackberry Pearl - Shortcut key for speakerphone not working

I used to press the (.) period key as a shortcut to launch the speakerphone on my Blackberry Pearl 8110. Now when I press the (.) period key, it asks me if I want to assign a speed dial to it. If I select Yes, it takes me into my caller address book.

How do I reassign the (.) period key to launch my speakerphone?

Any help is appreciated.

SOURCE: i cant turn on my blackberry pearl 8110. Red light just flashes

A hard reset involves physically removing the battery from the smartphone and then reinserting it. To perform a hard reset, complete the following steps:
1) Remove the battery cover from the back of the BlackBerry smartphone.
2) Remove the battery, and then reinsert it after a few seconds.
3) Replace the battery cover.
Still if it is not working kindly remove the Battery of the Handheld and try in some other Handheld.
If the Battery is working fine in the other Handheld then there might be some problem with your Handheld, you need to walk into the service center.
If the Battery is not working in the other Handheld then there might be aproblem in the USB cable for these you need to walk into the service center

SOURCE: When I try to call from the address book or speed

I solved the problem by doing a Hard reset, this means taking the battery out while the phone is still on, leaving it out for 30 seconds, replace the battery, the phone will then turn on, it resets itself and it worked just fine. But I would suggest removing your memory card or saving the pics on it because I think it deleted some pictures on it. But I still don't know what caused it to have this problem in the 1st place, it was like it froze up in the call log mode. Removing the battery did fix it.

Windows 7 Keyboard Shortcuts


Let's kick offwith keyboard shortcuts - the first thing every power user must memorize withworking with a new operating system. In Windows 7, we've uncovered several newsets of essential time-saving shortcuts that will make your mouse jealous withneglect.
Alt + P
In Windows Explorer, activate an additional file preview pane tothe right side of the window with this new shortcut. This panel is great forpreviewing images in your photos directory.
Windows + + (plus key)
Windows + - (minus key)
Pressing the Windows and plus or minus keysactivates the Magnifier, which lets you zoom in on the entire desktop or open arectangular magnifying lens to zoom in and out of parts of your screen. You cancustomize the Magnifier options to follow your mouse pointer or keyboardcursor. Keep in mind that so far, the Magnifier only works when Aero desktop isenabled.
Windows + Up
Windows + Down
If a window is not maximized, pressingWindows + Up will fill it to your screen. Windows + Down will minimize thatactive window. Unfortunately, pressing Windows + Up again while a window isminimized won't return it to its former state.
Windows + Shift + Up
Similar to the shortcut above, hitting thesethree keys while a window is active will stretch it vertically to the maximumdesktop height. The width of the window will however stay the same. PressingWindows + Down will restore it to its previous .
Windows + Left
Windows + Right
One of the new features of Windows 7 is the abilityto automatically make a window fill up half of your screen by dragging to theleft or right. This pair of shortcuts performs the same function without yourmouse. Once a window is fixed to one side of the screen, you can repeat theshortcut to flip it to the other side. This is useful if you're extending adesktop across multiple monitors, which prevents you from executing this trickwith a mouse.
Windows + Home
This shortcut performs a similar function tohovering over a window's peek menu thumbnail in the Taskbar. The active windowwill stay on your desktop while every other open application is minimized.Pressing this shortcut again will restore all the other windows.
Windows + E
Automatically opens up a new Explorer window toshow your Libraries folder.
Windows + P
Manage your multiple-monitor more efficientlywith this handy shortcut. Windows + P opens up a small overlay that lets youconfigure a second display or projector. You can switch from a single monitorto dual-display in either mirror or extend desktop mode.
Windows + Shift + Left
Windows + Shift + Right
If you are using two or more displays (and whoisn't, these days?), memorize this shortcut to easily move a window from onescreen to the other. The window retains its and relative position on thenew screen, which his useful when working with multiple documents. Utilize thatreal estate!Windows + [Number]
Programs (and new instances) pinned to yourTaskbar can be launched by hitting Windows and the number corresponding to itsplacement on the Taskbar. Windows + 1, for example, launches the firstapplication, while Windows + 4 will launch the fourth. We realize that this isactually one key-press more than just clicking the icon with your mouse, but itsaves your hand the trouble of leaving the comfort of the keyboard.
Windows + T
Like Alt + Tab (still our all time favoriteWindows specific shortcut), Windows + T cycles through your open programs viathe Taskbar's peek menu.
Windows + Space
This combo performs the same function as movingyour mouse to the bottom right of the Taskbar. It makes every active windowtransparent so you can view your desktop. The windows only remain transparentas long as you're holding down the Windows key.
Ctrl + Shift + Click
Hold down Ctrl and Shift while launching anapplication from the Taskbar or start menu to launch it with fulladministrative rights.
Ctrl + Click
Hold down Ctrl while repeatedly clicking aprogram icon in the Taskbar will toggle between the instances of thatapplication, like multiple Firefox windows (though not browser tabs).

Blackberry pearl is black and it will not recharge.


Hi,
Seems like an electrical shortcut about the screen lighting, looks like you might need a replacement for this (if it is indeed a short somewhere, you're going to be pretty hard pressed finding)
Better call your carrier.....(as you says that is a new phone they replace it with new one) 
Good Luck!!
