Sprint Evo Shift 4G Keyboard Shortcuts

Here are a couple of keyboard shortcuts I found while using the Evo Shift 4G. These shortcuts are available in any editing applications like Notepads or any application that has a text editing field, like SMS or the Web Browser. All the shortcuts I found perform actions that are possible by touching the screen. However, it is sometimes easier, faster, and more accurate to perform many text editing functions using the keyboard shortcuts.

  1. These shortcuts are so helpful. I am also looking for an “Undo” shortcut. If you want to undo your last change, there is usually a keyboard command of Control Z in MS-Word. Any idea what the keyboard shortcut is on the EVO Shift?
