Default text msgs and e-mails

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, i've had my blackberry for almost 2 weeks now and im totally new to them. I bought an 8300 and had to return it cause it was defective so i have a new one. Everytime i recieve an e-mail it shows up in both my email and text msgs box. Is this normal or is there a way to change this because the 1st one i had..... when i would recieve an e-mail, it would only show up in the e-mail box and i kinda liked it this way better. Also when i recieve a text, i dont hear any sound. My profile is set to medium but it just blinks red when i recieve a msg and i dont hear sound. How can i change that? Thanks

I think with the first BlackBerry you had your theme was set to separate the SMS and Messages inboxes. I believe this option is in Messages > Options > General Options > SMS and Email Inboxes. Set it to Separate.

As for the sound issue, it seems as though the SMS Text option does not have a sound associated with it, or it is set to Mute. Go to Profiles > Advanced > (edit the active Profile) > SMS Text and make sure that Out of Holster is set to Tone, that you have a Tune set, and that the Volume is not set to Mute. You can also do the same for the Out of Holster section.

It is normal for all incoming messages to show up in the messages folder; emails also show up in their individual folder. Regarding text messages: within each of the profiles are advanced options (click on Profiles and then scroll to the bottom). That's where you set tones and such for texts.

That is the default setting, you can separate it.
