Separating SMS & MMS and Messages notifications...

For those of you like myself who kept receiving the red asterisk on both SMS and messages, go into:     *the message envelope

*open your messages

*click on the menu button. You should see Help, Compose Email, etc.....

*scroll down to options. You should then see: Message Options at the top of the screen.

Once in this screen, go into Inbox Settings. You will see a message: select the items to include in the main message list. If you have any checks in the boxes,UNCHECK , all boxes.

*hit back arrow to save changes.

EXIT @ your leisure.
