Is there a way to program different alerts or notiifcation for SMS text messages versus emails. I typically get about 100+ emails a day. (Thus the reason why I wanted to get a Blackberry) Before I had this device, I instructed my friends and family the easiest way to get my was by text messges. However, with the Blackberry my text messages get "lost" in the emails.
I have missed too many messages from my wife, so I could use some help.
Solved! Go to Solution.

you can separate them from your email icon:
Messages>Menu>options> General Options>SMS and Email Inboxes>Separate and then save

Also, in Profiles -> Advanved -> Menu -> Edit you can change the notification options for email, SMS, MMS, and Phone to have different notifications so that when your SMS text comes in it sounds different from when an email comes in.

I separated my emails and SMS today, but now I'm confused about how to get to the SMS messages. My "messages" icon takes me into my emails. I don't really care about that, considering there are separate icons for my email accounts. But, I can't figure out how to display just all the text messages. I can see that you can get it to display either outgoing or incoming text message folders, but can you not get it to show all SMS together, and to be the main thing that opens when you click "messages"? Argh.
