Default Re: BB 8830. Cannot find and turn off SMS delivery notifications??

The 8830 can be set to silence various sounds.
the list below is a copy from the 8830 manual and unless your OS is non standard should help in setting a sound profile to silence the text messages or from a specific user.
If your trying to silence only one type of text message communications it may be impossible. Other than setting specific users up it is normally an all or nothing.
