from my 8700c i could "compose" an sms from the email page by typing a "c" for compose and type the first letters of a contact name from my address book and them pushing the jog-dial and selecting "compose SMS" .... from the email page of my 8800 i cant make it do the same thing. the "c" button only permits me to "compose" an email and NOT an SMS..... anyone know the shortcut to compose an SMS from the email page. what setting (option) have i overlooked? thanks

I loved this shortcut too from the 8700c. What I've had to do (which is more or less the same number of steps, just in a different order) is hit the menu button from the messages screen, selecting Compose SMS, and then choosing the contact and phone number.

If you find a different way to do this, please let me know!

Yes--it's a G200.

One of the other mods decided it needed to be photoshopped.
