    Yes I know I should look in the manual, but it's not to hand......

    Is there a way to program a shortcut key on a 6100 to, say, open the screen to
    SMS a message to a particular number?

    Although you can program the 'soft-keys' to access certain functions e.g.
    apps, inbox, etc. AFAIK you cant program them to do something that
    specific.

    Hi - I don't have this option in Settings. Does this mean I need a trip to a
    service centre for the latest fw?

    AFAIK it was added in firmware v5.16. So it does indeed look like a trip
    to the service centre.

    Firmware ver. can be gotten with *#0000#

    Not blind, just stupid, obviously. I pressed the left arrow, and it
    let me type a msg, but then I still have to go thru the phone book to
    insert the name of the recepient.

    What I wanted, which was clear if you read the OP, was to be able to
    send to a particular, pre-programmed number, so all I have to do is
    type the msg and hit send.

    But thanks anyway for your patient help.

    Goto your text profiles and set up a default recipient number then u can do
    it the same way i suggested and if u want to send it to someone else then
    clear the number n press search.

    To speed things up, just rename the preferred name by preceding it
    with (AA). That way you don't have to search for the name as it'll be
    the first on the list. Combined with the left arrow function, the
    whole process (minus the message writing) is taken down to 6 key
    presses.

    To keep the name looking a bit tidier you could precede it with a
    period (.) instead although you'd need to use the up arrow once after
    you get to the search list to get to the name in question. I use the
    period trick to separate commonly used names in my address book. I
    never need more than three or four key presses in 'search' to get to
    any of my really regular contacts.

    How many times do I have to tell you how stupid I am?

    You keep assuming that you can chuck in a phrase like "text profiles"
    and I'll know what you mean. Assume I'm an idiot. We weren't all born
    with a mobile phone in hand. Our arthiritc fingers and senile brains
    sometimes need things *****ing out.

    I've just looked through the manual and can't see anything called text
    profiles. What keys do I press? What menu is it in Can't see anything
    in Text Messages, or Profiles, that says default recepient or even
    close to it.

    Ok, this is from a 6100 owner:

    Menu > Messages > Message Settings > Text Messages > Sending Profile >
    Default Profile > Default recipient number > Options > Search > Select >
    Options > Accept > "Default recipient defined"

    Now when you select send text message from pressing the left arrow key, the
    mobile number of the "default recipient" is always inserted first. You have
    the option to erase this or just send as normal.
