    Not possible with any BB model, sorry. Both alerts will be the same. Oh and Welcome to the Stacks!

    Considering that voice mail messages and SMS text messaging use the same transport (Phone Control Channel) it's going to be hard separate them

    I wish it was possible my friend, but again no matter what you do it is not yet possible on any BB device. Hopefully on a future BB release it will be.

    I actually found a "work around"olution for this.

    There is a FREE service called You Mail (youmail . com). This service replaces your Verizon (or other service provider) voice mail. Additionally (what sold me on this) is that you can create a different personalized greeting for each caller, based on their Caller ID number.

    When a voice mail message is left in your You Mail box; not only does it send you a text message with the information, it sends you an e-mail with the voice mail attached as a .wav file.

    I simply created a contact for You Mail, and assigned a different ring tone for it. I now can differientiate between voice mail messages and SMS messages.

    Works wonderfully, and I can keep important voice mails as a wav file on my PC.

    Just found out the hard way today that "forwarding your calls" is not free. In my case .20 cents a min...I loved you mail but I'm back to square one...Same boring notification for text and voice mail...THIS SUX

    Re: Help making voice mail and text notifications different

    I am not sure if this is along the same lines of the discussion but with my new 8830, I get a text message every time I get a voice mail. I find this to be very annoying and I can not figure out how to turn it off!
    Any ideas?
