Default Question concerning AOL mail/text messaging?

Please Login to Remove!

so im getting the 8700 BB on cingular tom. i was wondering one thing. i plan on using text messages/aol mail very frequently. a friend of mine has the model for t mobile (not the 8700, the dark blue one, model number is escaping me) and he has a mail icon and an messages icon. the messages clearly holds his text messages, and he has an icon next to that that says "mail" or something of the sort, and when highlighted, his aol email name shows up on the bottom of the screen. essentially, he has two different apps/proggrams for text messaging and email respectivley. my question is, is it the same for the cingular 8700 model or do my text/emails both get sent into the messages app, thank you

I have the Cingular 8700 and the icons different. I have an icon for each email account I have and then a text message icon. I have been using the zen theme for sometime now, but I do believe the theme's that come on the 8700c do also have different icons for each.

If your a heave SMS user, as I was, using the Zen theme is not the best thing. It does not show SMS in the 'Messages' icon. It is a seperate folder in the menu. and different email adressess will not only show up on the main screen as different icons, they will also come together in the messages icon.

OK...to clarify everyone's questions/debates...

A) "Messages" is a catch-all for ALL your e-mail. Your friend has a separate mailbox for his AOL account, but his AOL messages are in his "Messages" folder, as well.

B) As mentioned above, you'll have a separate folder for each individual account that isn't a Blackberry Enterprise Server account (which it doesn't sound like you'll be using).

C) Only a few themes will separate E-mail and SMS. The standar themes on the 8700c won't have that ability, so you won't have to worry.
