Default Easier way to access MMS/ SMS inbox

Please Login to Remove!

seriously...there has to be an easier way!!!

my boss has the 7100i and everytime that he wants to open a text message he has to
  1. Go to messages from the main screen
  2. click the trackwheel
  3. scroll down to "view folder"
  4. select the folder
  5. open the message

This really frustrates him because he sees how easy it is for other smartphone/PDA users. Is there a way to link this folder as a destination on the main page or something of that manner so that he doesn't have to go through this process?

Thanks for any responses

While in the message folder, press Alt key and the ? key (AS) to filter only to the SMS Messages.

Alt + 9 (m) filters only the MMS messages.

You might look really good to your boss if you download, print and give him this PDF file of 7100 tips and tricks...
