    Lightbulb background for text message

    Advertisement



    Hi all!

    I have a friend who uses an 8830 berry, and has somehow set it so that when she opens a text msg to read it, there is a colored pattern in the background. Does anyone out there know how to remove that?? Any help would be greatly appreciated. THX ALL

    Is that option only for the 8830? I am not seeing it for my 8100.

    If you're on BES you can set a colored background for business/private mails. Could also be on SMS.

    On BIS you can't set this option But that would be nice for some reasons.

    As far as I know it is for all 4.2+ devices but it may be called "Background Message Color". I don't have any non BES activated phones around right now so Peter may be correct. Sorry for the confusion regarding "Message Outline Colors" as they changed the name in OS4.5.

    Please see the link for more info. As well SMS messages and BIS messages would be considered as "Other Messages"

    Background Message Color is not device specific, but OS specific, appearing in all but the very earliest 4.2's and later. We've had quite a discussion here recently why they would put it in the Security menu area rather than "Screen/Keyboard" - it's funny that if you happen to have your handheld passworded, you have to use your password to change the message background color. Also, it's an oddity that on that menu option it's spelled "colour", not "Color" - - - - But that's RIM! Gotta love 'em!

    Should be Options>Security Options>General Settings then scroll to the bottom of that screen. If it isn't there, then it's not on your device -

    I don't have it in my 8330/4.3.0.124 on BIS either, so is it BES only?
