Default New Message Opens Automatically

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know how to turn this off? I can't, for the life of me, find where I do this. Everytime I get a new message and pull the 8830 out of the holster, it automatically opens that message. Problem is that sometimes i have like 5 or 6 messages and I want to pick which one I open, not have it automatically open the most recent.

No can do. Alternative is wait whatever period of time it is so that message does not open.

My biggest complaint about the BB is bad UI. Every other phone I can find where to change settings, on the BB it's damn near impossible.

For example, to change ringtones, on almost no other phones do you go to media, ringtones, and then change it. there's usually settings => Sound => Voice Calls. Another example is changing your profile settings... like you have to choose profiles, scroll all the way down, click Advanced or soemthing, then edit, then jeez....

I still love my BB... but give me the CHOICE if I want to auto read my msgs.

The message opening when the BB is removed is part of what makes the Blackberry. I sold three friends on the BB with that. I guess another alternative if you don't like it is turn the email alert off and check messaages when you have a mind.



P.S. So many write, "On any other phone...yada yada yada"---The Blackberry is not a phone. It has a phone. It is not a phone. It is an email device first.

P.S.S. Yes, I'm probably a BB purist. Perhaps I'm living in the past.

Just saying I want the choice. =)

The choice to have it auto open, alert me and not auto-open, or no alert at all. That way you can still get your feature you sold your 3 friends on and I get the features that I value most. Choice! =)

Like I said, I still freakin love the Blackberry. Nothing beats getting an email in your phone, before you even get it in your email inbox. Love that.

You DO have a choice. Simply wait about a minute after getting an email before you pull it out of the holster and it will NOT auto open the message. I like the feature and feel that Blackberry is EXTREMELY easy to customise features to your liking. The profiles selections are unequalled!

People coming from other devices may take some use before they realise how good the Blackberry really is.

FYI this is not true, if you keep the left side convienence key as Profiles, click it once, and scroll all the way down to Advanced... You can now edit all your exceptions and profiles...
