    alright, i love the keyboard shortcuts that are available, but I find it very difficult to navigate the keyboard to use them.

    For example, a Luna restart is ORANGE + SYM + R. Getting all three of those keys at once is extremely akward for me. What fingers do you use to get them without setting the phone on the table top to press them?

    There is a program on here for a restart button. Sounds like the cure for you.

    Do a search for Tips and Tricks. There's a running PDF file you can download that has a whole bunch of tips and shortcuts with illustrations.

    Update: Look here. Believe it or not, the title of the thread is actually called "Palm Pre Tips...." you might find some useful info there

    Orange Sym R does a full reboot, not just a Luna restart.

    There is a homebrew app called Luna Manager that lets you restart Luna by tapping a button.

    thanks for the correction, got the app.

    i still find it akward to press more than two keys at a time.

    I'm glad it's a little awkward to hit the restart sequence... I'd hate to accidentally reset my phone when I'm just trying to type fast. haha

    As for me, I hold the phone in my left hand, use my left thumb for the "Orange" key, my right middle finger for the Shift, and right pointer finger for the "R".

    I use an app called AutoCorrectEdit. It allows to enter short cuts or words that you misspell for corrections. For instance, I type omw and it will show on my way. At any rate, it requires that you restart luna for the changes to be activated. Thus, I use AutoCorrectEdit to enter new words, phrases and shortcuts and also for luna restarts. It allows me to use one app for multiple purposes.
