Default Scroll down in cell phone screen

I just got a wireless phone. I have received one text message. I can see the top of the message on the screen. There is nothing in the manual about how to scroll down to see the rest of the message. Can someone explain how to do this?

Shake it up and down?

Sorry. I have no experience with those things, but that solution just came to me.

Do you mean a DECT phone or something else? There is usually a key combination for doing such things. RTFM - if you have one???

I already checked the manual, the Verizon web site, and did a Google search.

BTW, this is the type of phone I have: http://www.mobilemag.com/content/100/340/C4540/#

Surely on the VX5200 the scroll button is on the 4 way switch around the OK button? Hitting it just below OK should scroll the display, but there are plenty of reports that way the phone works is not immediately obvious.

Thanks. You got me to try that button again, and I figured out why it did not work before. I had to press that key twice to get it to start scrolling. The first press adds an underscore to a phone number that is in the message, possibly to turn it into a hyperlink for dialing. And (probably) if that phone number had not been there, the first press would have scrolled the display.
