    Combining Old SMS

    Advertisement



    I know how to delete old messages but I was wondering if there was a setting to have the pearl combine old messages with the reply back from a person... It sounds confusing but I hope an admin understands. that way you don't have to delete the old one because it just combines it with the new reply.

    If you're meaning something like how emails add "original text" within the email you're replying and applying this to SMS, then it's impossible.

    I would like to add, however, that this does work with PIN messaging. The original text is included in your reply so you can get rid of the older PINS and still have your conversation saved.

    Edit: Sorry I keep double posting. Not used to a forum where I can edit, I hang around flame boards too much. ;p

    Mine doesnt have the original text included, but it does show a message trail like it does on Gmail. It did it for me on Tmo .64 and the new .101 OS's. The way I'm reading what you wrote, I thought the blackberry already did that. Perhaps I'm misreading, though.

    well it would be nice if the sms messages used "original text" so not to clutter up my message box

    I meant more it links up replies in the chain. Like a Gmail conversation via e-mail. It shows what I sent, what they sent, etc. even for Twitter, if I view one message, I can see the rest from that day.

    Re: Combining Old SMS

    no i understand that.. It does leave a "papertrail" if you will on the new message... but it still leaves the OLD message that I received in my box. so I have to delete every reply other than the newest one.. if that makes any sense.

    never used a Treo

    Oh, yeah. It would be nice if they were grouped them all together into a single entry in the inbox. That would be awesome. =D

    yeah what you are wanting is not available on the Pearl. Not sure if a 3rd party app is out there that does this for you. And about the Treo the text convo's are kept like a Chat IM log which is very handy. Each convo is seperate so you can have like 100 replies back and forth from someone but on the main screen it just shows one conversation...hmm that would be a good app to have made for the Pearl... ;-)
