    Okay this might seem like a ridiculous question, but what does the OK button do??? I wish it could just send my text messages.. instead it just highlights my text in red.. nothing happens unless i hold it down. Is there any way to change what this button does? And what is it supposed to be doing anyways???

    If you hit the right arrow then ok it will send the message. To be honest, I have never used the ok button. I just tap send.

    If your entering a user name and passcode or using search, it will act as you're clicking on "Go" on certain sites.

    If you're navigating with the arrows (why would you? but you can), but if you are, then you can hit OK to open the app or text message.

    Doesn't the enter key do that? I'm kinda dumbfounded as for the use of the OK button too. I wish it was an alt button. It annoys the crap out of me cause on the D1 I never used the left alt and always the right one.

    The enter/return key does the same function too. Maybe I accidently hit that key instead of OK. I could've sworn I've used the OK after using search or after entering a User Name and password before.

    I've read that if using an xterm, OK is <CTL> and OK twice is <ESC>. I do not have independent confirmation of that.
