    So one thing I miss about the basic flip phone, or bar phone, is when you get an SMS it automatically pops up .. Are there any good apps I can download straight from my mobile device that can 'recreate' this function I so badly miss?

    Thanks, Rhiannon.

    I was going to recommend BerryPopUp as well but when I get an SMS it just pops up but only shows the name and number of the sender. When I press open inbox it takes me to Messages and not SMS/MMS. So I would recommend experimenting with all of them until you find one that works

    You can set it to show a message preview, too.

    If you want the total customization of text messages, this is what I use..

    Empower Threaded SMS - Communication & Internet BlackBerry Apps - Crackberry BlackBerry Apps Store

    Quick SMS: Speed dial for SMS - Communication & Internet BlackBerry Apps - Crackberry BlackBerry Apps Store

    SMS Popup Alert for Blackberry Bold, Curve, Tour, Storm, Pearl, 8800 - GetEmpower.com


    The above all work with each other. On the threaded sms, there are now 2 themes, the bubble and classic. They all come with a free trial, so you can try it free. You could probably get away without having the quick sms, as threaded sms lists all the text messages you have sent, just have to scroll to the name you want to text to.
