    Texting --- Help

    Advertisement



    Hi.

    I'm a new BB user. Just got the 8700c. It works great but, for the life of me, I can't figure out how to read text messages. I've had people text messages to my cell and I have no idea where the messages are going.

    On the main screen, the first icon is a envelope. When I click on that, it opens my e-mail. The next icon is a letter with a globe. That's also my e-mail.

    So where do the text messages go? I know how to send a text message...but I have no idea how to retrieve text messages that people have sent me.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but I'd appreciate the help.

    Thanks!

    Your messages go into your messaeges folder.
    try this option..........on your main screen click menu button and show all, search around for your messages folder you should have one deselect hide icon if your message icon is shadowed! if thats too confusing post back!

    Thanks for the response. Unfortunately that's not the situation. My messages folder isn't shadowed. It's right there...the very first icon actually.

    But when I open it, all I get all my e-mails...not the texts.

    Is there some setting I need to change where the messages folder will display my texts (not my e-mails)?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Another silly question: what does SMS text messaging mean? Is that different from "regular" text messaging? To my knowledge, I have not been set up with an SMS phone number. Could that be what the problem is?

    Finally, silly question #2. You mentioned I should 'click on the menu button.' Where is the menu button?

    THANKS!

    Carrier is AT&T.

    They set up my e-mail for me. The first icon is an envelope. The second one is an envelope too...but it has a little globe on the lower right corner of the envelope.

    When I scroll over the 1st envelope it says Messages.

    When I scroll over the 2nd envelope it says my e-mail address.

    I'm assuming that the 1st envelope (Messages) is where my text messages are supposed to go...but I'm wondering if I just need to change some sort of setting on the phone. At that moment, my e-mails are showing up under both the 1st and 2nd envelope icons.

    Thanks for the link but no luck. I'm still struggling with this. I think I might take my chances and bring it to my local store and have them give me a quick tutorial. Either that or I'll smash the device with a hammer.

    Thanks for all the posts!
