Where is my text message icon?

My text message icon just disappeared from my desktop screen and I cannot find it.  No way to discern my text message from emails and no easy way to send texts without going through my directory.

1. On your homescreen, press the Menu key > SHOW ALL, so that SHOW ALL is checked.
2. Look in EACH folder on your device... Applications, Instant Messengers, Downloads, etc.

Re: Where is my text message icon?

Ok, Are you SMS messages currently found in your main messages listing?

 

Open that Messages icon > press the Menu key > options > Inbox Management.

Do you see the options there to inlcude SMS in your main Messages?

Re: Where is my text message icon?

Sorry, I may be dense but I do not see a "Show All"  in the menu.  Available selections are "Switch Application, Minimize Panel, Add Folder, Manage Panels and Options".  Am I not looking in the right place?

Re: Where is my text message icon?

Show all will only appear IF you have an icon hidden.

 

What about the second question?

Re: Where is my text message icon?

OK.  I still don't know where the icon went, but I took the battery out and put it back in and now the icon is back.

 

Thanks.
