Default Reading SMS Texts

Please Login to Remove!

I'm a new BB user, and I can't figure out how to read or retrieve SMS texts that I receive. I can compose and send texts, and my phone rings when I receive one, but I'm never able to view it.

It's possible your SMS messages are separated from your Messages inbox. Do you have a separate SMS icon anywhere?

To see if they are separated, click on the Messages icon, then go into Options -> General Settings. Look for 'SMS and Email Inboxes'. Is it set to Separate?

I figured it out. I had hidden the Messages icon, and was using two separate icons for two different email addresses. I didn't realize that texts went to the icon I was hiding. Thanks!
