Separating emails from texts
I noticed someone had a similar question about separating emails from texts. Basically, I'm getting double information. When someone sends me an email - or even when I send an email - a copy of said email appears in the messages box (SMS). I have asked ATT how to stop this, and they said it's not possible. Luckily, they say I am not being charged for all these email texts.
I did what they suggested on the thread I read. I now have three icons: one for messages, one for emails, and one for SMS and MMS. I am still receiving emails in my text box, only now I am only notified by the messages folder. Nothing appears in the new SMS and MMS folder. (I used to receive notification in my email folder, as well.)
Confused! Help? Is this a lost cause?

1) If you did separate the email and SMS/MMS folders, you should now have: a) a folder marked "SMS and MMS", b) a folder marked "Messages", and c) a folder for each individual email address.
2) You probably are not getting a text message for your emails.
(text and SMS are the same thing)
3) I will assume you're getting the duplicate emails when using Gmail. If this is the case, read follow the instructions in this thread and see if it stops happening.
4) All emails will go into the Messages folder as well as the individual email address folder. This is normal.

i believe you have to go into options in the message category>general options> sms and email inboxes change to seperate. if this is not the correct wayam sure someone else will post it"MY GADGET ADDICTION IS LIKE MY BLOOD IT KEEPS ME FLOWING"

I have Messages, and the individual email folders, no SMS or MMS.
Will going through the hassle of an OS upgrade solve this (and yes, it's a HASSLE, as I'm on Macs, and new to BB)?RED Torch Virgin Mobile, Storm (LyrHybrid.669v2) Rogers, unlocked HTC Desire, Macbook 10.6.5, Hackintosh desktop 10.5.6, JailBroken 16GB iPodTouch 1G, 16GB iPod Nano 4G , 8GB Jailbroken/unlocked iPhone 3G, Palm TX...... gadget queen!
