Default Can you turn off the message auto read?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey...I just moved from an old RIM 957 to my lovely new BB 7290. Here is the question....

When I get a message and unholster the unit, is there any way to *not* have the message automatically open? In my old 957 I could turn AutoRead Messages to Off....please!

I can't handle the thing auto-opening messages when they arrive...

Wait longer before taking it out of the holster. There is no way to disable that "feature".

I guess the "feature" makes an assumption that if you pull the BB out of the holster that fast (within 5 or 10 seconds?), you must want to read what just came in.

That's call CrackBerry, you just can't wait to read your email when it is right there by your belt.
