Many people believe pencil edit button given by Nokia in s60, and other Symbian phones are not important or worthless because most people might don’t know how and when it could be used and how handy, it can be using this pencil edit key. The pencil edit key works as Shift Button of the computer. The Pencil key is very useful and helpful. There is no magic stuff using this key, but it’s so useful and make thinks work easy using this key, Works like magic for me on Nokia phones.
Finally, we tried to figure out all its uses of Pencil edit button and listed them below…
Multiple Select using Pencil Edit Key
1}In computers, we use hotkey such as "shift key" to select the files or folders. Same way we have such a hot key in Nokia, i.e. pencil edit button. Surprised? Here is how it works. If you want to delete multiple SMS at once, simply hold the edit button (pencil key), scroll down, and then press C to delete all the marked SMS.
Copy and Paste using Pencil Edit Key
2}We also have a function to copy and paste in the text editor for SMS…
To select text, Hold down the pencil key and move the cursor using the joystick (i.e. left, right). Now, press the pencil key, and you would get options to cut and copy the selection. Then go to where you want to paste the text, press the pencil key and select paste.
The above trick helped me a lot in messaging and text editing on Nokia.
Safe Mode using Pencil Edit Key
As we have the safe mode option in our computer system, the same way Nokia has a safe mode option to boot.
This can be very useful and comes handy when you are unable to boot your
phone due to low memory or due to some other reason. When you turn ON your Phone, press the Pencil Edit key, hold it until it asks to enter your PIN Code. The Default code is 0000. Now, you have successfully logged into the safe mode.
Rename using Pencil Edit Key
This edit button do a very important role in other applications too. For selecting songs and renaming, Edit key come very handy.
Edit key can be used for rename purpose, for example, Go to Contact –> now press the pencil edit button on any contact name, and you will get an option to rename.
All right, this was the some magic of little hot key used in Nokia (PENCIL EDIT KEY). If you have any new trick for the edit key button do let us know.
