    HTC Excalibur (S620, DASH, Cosmo) Tips & Tricks Thread

    alright, it's time to start a thread like this so post any advice you have including more advanced registry changes. here are some i would like to point out.

    quick keypad lock:
    hold *z or hold the end call button

    activate voice dial (built-in):
    hold the home key

    speed dial:
    hold the number and for double digits, press the first digit and hold the second digit

    joggr constant scroll:
    slide once and slide again, but hold and move up or down to control the speed

    function/num lock:
    press the "fn" button twice to enable and twice to disable

    caps lock:
    press the CAP (up arrow) twice or press "fn" and then CAP, and repeat to disable

    start menu shortcut keys:
    after pressing start, the 8 icons correspond to the 8 keys on the top left of the qwerty keypad
    QWER
    ASDF



    registry changes:
    enable joggr:

    HK_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\JogBar\Settings\Botto mKeyApplicationName to \Windows\iexplore.exe (For IE)
    and
    HK_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\JobBar\Settings\TopKe yApplicationName to BACK (the back button)
    (thanks to staulkor)

    you can also change the TopKeyApplicationName or BottomKeyApplicationName to whatever program you want
    additional functions are back and start by changing the value to
    BACK
    or
    START

    I tried holding down the home key and nothing happened on my S620. Is there some registry chnage you have to make to make the button work?

    Thanks for the tip on the voice dial as I didn't know of it and was using it with a speed dial key.

    I'd add for those who are new to smartphone and/or don't ever opt to read the manual: A quick press of the power switch brings up a quick list of functions (comm mgr, phone profiles)

    This one was posted over at XDA-Developers

    It will mute the ringer as soon as you touch the jogger.

    \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\JogBar\Settings\

    There's a key there called EnableRingVolumeMute

    If there isn't, try creating it and setting it to 1.

    Dan, Have you see any posts of anyone who has figured out where the shortcuts are on the S620 that allow you to remap the ie and msg buttoms on the bottom rt of the keyboard? I seems from what I read over in the T-mobile forum that they see the short cut keys in the windows file. I don't see them in the S620 (only the camera shortcut). I have done this in the past with an sp5m and its real simple to remap the keys if you can find the shorcut keys. I have not looked real hard but didn't see any other file that looked promising.

    I don't actualy have a Dash yet, I'm just collecting info right now. I don't have one to mess around with yet to remap the keys. As soon as I get it I'll be looking.

    Does anyone know if there is registry change that makes the AIM use the data connection and not SMS similar to the sidekick?
