    Hi All,
    Just got my first blackberry, I am using Yahoo for email. TMobile gives me 400 text messages per month with the package I have. I noticed that every time I get an email in Yahoo, the yahoo icon AND the message icon both light up.

    So, am I getting dinged for a text message every time I get a yahoo email message? Is there a way to keep Yahoo with Yahoo, and not in the messages folder?

    I just confused myself even more.

    Thanks for any help, great site.

    Messages>menu button>options>general options>seperate SMS and email

    That will give you an SMS/MMS icon. Email will go to email and SMS/MMS to SMS. I have my messages folder moved into my apps folder, I dont use it, I dont see it flash every time either..

    No, you weren't being dinged on the text messages side, e-mail and SMS are separate services, even if they were registered in the same field on your device.

    Glad I'm not in the Windy, but I may be headed there next.

    Off topic, but are you aware that as of 1 March, TMobile is offering (loyalty) customers unlimited minutes for $49.99 and unlimited texts added for $14.99? The offer shows up in some online accounts, others have to ask for it. Just a thought....
