Nowhere to set SMS Text Alerts

Just recently upgraded to a BlackBerry Curve 9300. I am having trouble finding where to set the Alerts for the SMS text messages coming in. On my old BlackBerry I had a setting on my profiles which allowed me to set an Alert for SMS text messages. One the new Curve all the SMS text messages come in the same folder as my emails.

 

Can someone please help me. Please let me know where to adjust the audible settings for incoming text messages (right now all I get is a red LED flash).

 

Appreciate it

Rebooting preferably by removing the battery when powered-on, every so often is a good way to reset the device but not to the out-of-the-box state, it will still have your settings and apps, messages, emails etc.

 

If you want to return to the out-of-the-box state you will need to wipe it and reinstall the operating system.

Messages > Options > Inbox Settings allows you to chooose which type of messages go into that general message folder,

 

That said, if your on OS 6, it may be slightly different. Heres a link to OS  including a demo and support

Re: Nowhere to set SMS Text Alerts

I have blasted my BlackBerry and reconnected back the the BES. I did not restore an archive from my Desktop Manager this time and my SMS Text Icon came back as well as my ability to set alerts for the SMS texts
