Re: SMS message alerts vs email alerts

So if you want yet another way to do what you figured out on your own, from within the messages application while you're viewing the email, MMS, and SMS messages all mixed together, you can use the MENU key and scroll down to "View Folder", and in there you can select just certain types of messages, like "SMS Inbox".  Ways and ways...

Re: SMS message alerts vs email alerts

Are you asking how the poster moved the sms folder to the main screen? Find the folder and move your cursor over it to highlight it. Press the menu key and select move. Then scroll over the first folder on the screen it will say "move up". Click it and the icon will now be on your home screen. I hope that is what you were asking. If not please clarify and I will be happy to help.

Re: SMS message alerts vs email alerts

i have a 8330 from Verizon... on my original phone 4 weeks ago, there was a seperate folder for sms and mms messages, aside form the regular MESSAGES folder that holds all emails and sms messages.

 

NOW, I just got a replacement phone from insurance and I do not have a seperate folder icon for the main screen, specifically for SMS and MMS messages...how do i create one?

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.

WelcSmiley Happyme to the FSmiley Happyrums!

You will get the hang of the blackberry! This is my first one too! I love it and I am sure you will too.

This is from one of the forum members Jsanders: I will edit the parts that you need for your question.

 

GO TO YOUR HOME SCREEN

 

1. Select the Profiles icon  (mine looks like a speaker)

2. A box will appear where you can quick select between Loud, Vibrate, Quiet, Normal, Phone Only, and Off.


3. If you want to edit the tones assigned to the device applications then select the last option, Advanced
(some older models and OS 4.1 and below will not have the "Advanced" step--if Advanced is not present go directly to Step 4 below).

4. Select the profile you wish to edit. (Loud, Vibrate, Quiet, Normal (default), Phone Only, Off)
Note: on the 8100, 8800, and 8300 models: Do not click the trackball. Instead, click the menu key to the left of the trackball).
Note: The profile that is in use will say: (Active)

5. You will now see a list of all applications that can have a tone assigned (Browser, Calendar, Level 1 Messages, Messages (email@domain.com), Messenger, MMS, Phone, SMS, Task ect..)

6. Select the application you wish to edit the tone / notification for

7. You can now edit Out of Holster and In Holster tones/ notifications.
a) Select between: None, Tone, Vibrate, Vibrate+Tone
b) Select the Tune you wish to use
c) Select Volume (options are Mute, Low, Medium, High, Escalating)
d) Select Number of Beeps (options are 1, 2, 3)
e) Select Repeat Notification (options are None, LED Flashing)
f) If set to Vibrate or Vibrate+Tone then select Number of Vibrations (options are 1, 2, 3)

8. Repeat a-e for each of the desired applications listed in 5 above
