Straight to SMS Screen

My convenience key is set to "Messages" so I can quickly get to my email.  On my old 8830 this also showed me my SMS messages - which was great.  On my 8830, if I felt the phone vibrate, I could go right to the SMS item via the convenience key.

 

On my Tour this doesn't seem to be the case:  if I want to see an incoming SMS, I have to go through the menu.

 

Is there a way to merge SMS and email on the tour as was the case on the 8830?  If not, is there a quick way to get to SMS (Note: I still want my convenience key to be "Messages" for the sake of email).

Re: Straight to SMS Screen

If go to your messages, then click the blackberry button and goto options -> general options, change "SMS and Email Inboxes" from "Theme Controlled" to "Combined".  That should do the trick for you...
