Re: SMS message alerts vs email alerts

I combined my email and sms messages. I wish I hadn't. It created another incon on the home screen for sms and email.

I went back and seperated them as previously selected, but I still have the sms mms folder, msg folder and email folders on my home screen.

I would like sms and mms to go to one folder, and my email to the email folders only.

I would like to delete some existing folders from my home screen.

Can you please advise me?

Thank you in advance for your time and help.

 


 

 

The way to keep SMS/MMS in one folder and email in one folder is to go your OPTIONS icon > SCREEN/KEYBOARD > Scroll down to sms/email messages and SEPARATE.  

 

Regarding existing folders on your home screen --  highlight over the icon you are wanting to remove > press the menu button >>  then hide... this will hide that icon and remove it from the home screen. 

 

Glad you found the forums!  Glad you are here!

Re: SMS message alerts vs email alerts

NurseBerry, you're awesome, thanks! I'm embarrassed, I have the "old phone" or maybe "cheap phone" because I don't have that Advanced option on Profiles. But I also don't have a trackball. I have a trackwheel and Return button, and I don't think I have a Menu button (or do I?). My phone has 3 bars across under the screen and none of them have the puppy feet look. Can you either tell me where my Menu button might be, and if I don't have one, then how to assign a tone to my text messages without it? THX

Is it a BlackBerry phone ? If so, you can see on the website to get the reference of the device :

http://na.blackberry.com/eng/devices/archived/

 

once that is done, my advice is for you to go to another board on this forum, entitled :

Other BlackBerry Smartphones and Devices

and post your question about how to configure the SMS thing on this device.

When I go to Options > Screen/Keyboard > I don't have a sms/email messages separate option.

 

It's a little frustrating because after reading this thread it seems like it isn't possible to do what I want to do which is just have my text messages seperate from my emails.  I only have one email account but it gets a lot of mail and I'm likely to miss texts if I can't seperate them.  The above suggestion seemed like it would do exactly what i needed but I don't have that sms/email option under screen/keyboard.  Any other suggestions?  Thank you!

Re: SMS message alerts vs email alerts

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

That setting (to separate SMS from Messages) is actually in different places depending on device OS level. I don't know definitively which OS levels have it where, but if it's not where you were previously directed, then check these two:

 

  • Homescreen > Messages > BBKey > Options > General Options > find a setting for separating SMS/MMS and set it to Separate

 

  • Homescreen > Messages > BBKey > Main Message List Settings > uncheck those items you don't want displayed in Messages

 

Hopefully one of those will have what you are looking for. The BB is indeed capable of doing it, it's just that they keep moving the setting around.

 

Cheers!
