Yes, you can have a separate inbox for your texts. And like the 8830, you can have a separate inbox for each email address while they also arrive in the Messages folder as well.

but can i have just emails arrive in email inbox and just texts arrive in a seperate inbox? and can i have all of my email accounts arrive in one folder?

also when i get a text and the alert pops up do i have to click inbox or can i just click view on the alert??

You have these options:

All e-mail inboxes and texts in one place
All e-mail inboxes in a message inbox and texts in their own inbox
All e-mail in separate inboxes and texts in their own inbox

As for your original question. I have had an 8310 and now a Bold. I have never looked back at the 8310, other than it being smaller. The Bold is superior (for my needs) in every possible way.

Also "pop-up" alerts are not native to the BlackBerry OS. You will need to install an app such as Aerize Alerts, or Peek-A-Who. For both of these apps you can click the alert to dismiss, mark as read, or launch directly into the inbox.

Glad to help. I would also suggest you check out the 9000 forum and the 8300 forum to see topics, issues, and feedback for the individual devices.

Ditto for me. I had an 8310 for a year, and now a Bold. With no offense to the curve owners, the curve feels like a toy by comparison.

I would never go back to a curve.

I have been using the Curve for almost 2 years now and just switched to the Bold.. Impressed would be an understatement.. I thought it was going to be hard to let go of my curve but I was wrong..

Oh yea.. ROLL TIDE! :)
