Did you know you can force a restart of your BlackBerry without having to take the cover off and pull the battery?
If your BlackBerry locks up and you want to give it the three-finger-salute (aka. CTRL-ALT-DEL on a PC), then look no further.
Hold down the left ALT key, than press and hold the following keys simultaneously: RIGHT-SHIFT and BACKSPACE/DEL. Your screen will clear, your LED will blink RED and your BlackBerry will reboot.
Of course if this doesn’t work, rip that battery out! 😀
