    Faster SMS Messaging

    Advertisement



    I have had my 8703 for 1 day and I'm already frustrated with sending text messages. It seems so complicated, click on msgs, then the msg you want then click open then click reply.

    Is there anyway to put an SMS msg icon right on the main screen where I can immediately just type a note and hit send. It just seems way too complicated this way.

    Re: Faster SMS Messaging

    There is no faster way to reply to a message (which it seems is what you are doing) but on my 8700 to send a message I just click on the message folder, scroll up to the top of the message list with the date highlighted and hit enter to start an email or click on it to scroll to sms.

    Unfortunately you need to select message to view it, but to reply all you have to do is highlight the message you want to reply and hit "R"

    Hope that helps

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    May be trying using the Zen or the Vodafone theme. It puts a whole different folder for sms on your screen so it is easily accessible

    & as flash24 suggested highlight the message you want to reply to & press "R" & bam you will be replying in no time.

    Good luck

    Just click on the contact to send it to and select Compose SMS. That's the method I normally use.

    These guys have covered it. I would also suggest using the Zen theme as it gives you a seperate SMS folder.

    Everything on the BB is a lot easier if you learn to use the shortcuts instead of completely relying on the wheel. I don't have a link to a resource with all the shortcuts handy but I'll post it here if I run across it.

    Re: Faster SMS Messaging

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ it's been said already. Use the vodafone theme (I use it, and it rocks!) Sms partial show up if really long on the home screen. You can hit the sms from there then hit 'r' to reply. Or if you're in messages, and receive a sms; hit alt s then r on the sms and boom! Your replying to the sms just sent. I don't find the procedure long at all.

    Hope that helps
