Blackberry 8800 – Short Menus, I Hate Them!

Probably only one of two things that I do not like on my Blackberry 8800 device is the use of the short menus when you click down on the trackball. The other thing I do not like is the Push-To-Talk button. However, I really do no not like the short menus that the trackball produces – in fact, I hate them!

Why? Because they almost never have the shortcuts that I am looking for when I click on the trackball. Perhaps this is a hold-over from my years of using the click-wheel. But, I do expect that when I push the trackball down, effectively clicking it – that I had the options available to me that I use the most. What I am finding with 8800 is that they very often are not – and that I have to end up using the menu key to get the options I am looking for.

It just kills the efficiency a little. I had recently looked for options to add or modify these shortcut menus, but there does not appear to be an easy way to do it. Have you figured out how to modify the shortcut menus or do they give you similar fits? If so, let me know below!
