Nokia shortcuts

I wanted to send some 5 pics from my phone to my friends. It was pretty much annoying to go to Options->Mark/Unmark->Mark for each pic. Wish there was a shortcut key for mark/unmark. I know this is easy with any file explorer like YBrowser and FExplorer but then there are no thumbnails only filenames :(
I tried out all keys but nothing. Found out a few other things in the process. It was pretty surprising to see Darla Mack's post that many do not know that pressing zero thrice when editing takes you to a new line, so I'm just putting these shortcuts down in case it is still not known.

Call END (red) key: Earlier when in any application pressing this key would send the application to the background, now it simply exits/closes the application. The only way to send an application to background is to press the Menu key.

Call ACCEPT (green) key: Can also be used as the 'Send' key. When in messaging no need to go to options and then press send, just use the green key. When in gallery pressing this key pops up the Send dialog with via Bluetooth,via multimedia etc...

# : A long press on this key on the idle screen toggles between General/Silent.

A long press on any key from a to z will type the number on that key.

To switch from alpha mode to numeric in an editor long press #.

A long press on the multimedia key on N95 brings up Media player.

The button next to camera click button brings up the last clicked pic.

To bring up the number stored in the SIM at the nth position press n+#.

For a full stop just press 1.

Do comment if you know more shortcuts.

  2. You could also mark items by holding the pencil key down and selecting the image you want with the normal select key :-)

  4. Actually CJ's tip is a shortcut for Mark/Unmark for most of the applications, not just gallery.

    Thanks again CJ.

  8. Haven't tried it, but for those who do not have a pencil key, pressing # on listboxes, grids etc.. marks/unmarks them. Thats what a friend told me, he has a E51 - no pencil key. The # button is the shift key on such phones.
