    Okay... so i just switched from a Motorola Q to a 8130 Pearl on Verizon.

    Whats all the hype? I am only 20 hours into this phone but im really hating it. HELP ME!

    My messages are all in one folder. WHY in the WORLD do i need a message for a missed call??? I cant find any options to change that.

    Can someone please help me with this messaging issue??

    I dont even have my work outlook email sync-ed up yet and i already cant split the texts from the missed calls. ALSO... why are the inbound and outbound texts all in the same message folder???

    Under the message folder i found a button for View Folders... that way i can choose what i want to see (in separate folders). Can i make that list (of all the folders) the default for the message button?

    HELP ME PLEASE!!! I really WANT to be excited about this phone. Right now, i just dont understand why anyone would want a phone without windows mobile... SELL me on this, people...

    now that i am calm... let me clarify
    1. Can i stopped missed calls from being "messages"
    2. Can i have the "Select Folder" page (with the list of all the messages) be its own icon. (So that i can click that and then click the folder i want?)

    I appreciate any help i get. Thanks!

    On your Main menu it lists all your icons, your MESSAGES displays all messages from your email address and txt messages.

    If you want to see your email for a specific email address once you add one it creates a new icon that'll say Myemail@gmail.com and it'll only list those email messages. Thats how your messages are split into their own categories.

    As for the missed call messages I can't tell you, it doesn't bother me that much to care about.

    For the missed call messages (at least for my 8830):

    Go to Call Log, then Options, then Call Logging. You should have the option:

    "Show these call log types in message list" And you just pick either missed calls, all calls, or none.

    Thanks for that ...WK.

    I found that email tip and also the "Separate Email from SMS/MMS" tip.

    I think i am on my way to getting this Blackberry thing... Windows mobile just seems so much more user friendly... oh well

    Also you can separate emails and text messages to be in separate inboxes by going to Messaging, clicking on OPtions, then General Options, then changing the option: "SMS and Email Inboxes" (combined or separated).

    You can also choose to hide your sent messages by changing the option for "Hide Sent Messages".

    Holy crap I can't believe anyone could actually favor a windows mobile device over ANY BB...no offense-ive just used both and for me its not even a close battle- its all about the BB!
