learning never ends

I've had the same phone for slightly less than three years. I've used it, misused it, abused it, even done things that it wasn't meant to do. In the course of all these years, i thought i pretty much figured out everything i possibly could have about my trusty n-gage. But then again, i guess all impressions are made to be broken. In the last month i actually learned something new, and it wasn't even arbit. Then i gave it to my bro and he actually figured out two things that i didn't know but would have saved me a lot of time and effort.

What i discovered:

Holding the "edit" key and pressing backspace converts it into delete - a super time saver when shortening texts to the 160 char limit.

What kevin discovered:

When in the menu, hitting a number from 1 to 9 jumps to that item in the menu.

When in a list that has mark options, holding "edit" and using the arrows works the exact same way as shift-selecting works on a pc.

I guess this only goes to prove that learning never ends. And it never should.
