This is a list of useful shortcuts, hidden functions, smart system codes and SIM card codes that Blackberry users should know. Unfortunately, many Blackberry users don’t know these codes and those that do only know a few of those codes.
In one of my previous posts titled 10 useful tips every Blackberry user should know, I talked about faster and easier ways to execute tasks on Blackberry. It’s different from this post. You can check it out.
