    There is NO pop-up without a third-party app doing it for you.

    At least there hasn't been for the past 8 months I've been on my Torch with OS 6. Same with my Pearl 8100 on OS 4.5 for 3 years before that.

    There is a notification icon just like an email notification along with whatever sound you want. But that's all you get by default.

    I get pop-ups every time I am in the middle of a text message while typing out another message whether it be text, email or bum.

    It pops up at the bottom and I have the option to switch to that message or not. It eventually goes away. OS 6 9650

    That whole bottom row of icons isn't there on the rest of the OS6 devices.
    On OS6, you press the Blackberry button for those options.

    I do too and no I don't have any 3rd party app in my phone to account for it. I am on 6.0 though.

    I'm pretty sure the OP meant the pop-up that happens on iOS, where it shows up in the middle of the screen.

    And OUTSIDE of the sms app itself.

    i had an iphone 4 and yes its great for what it and now i have and old curve 8310. no bbm contacts but i do alot of texting and even though it has no apps or that apple feeling. its just so addictive to type on this 2/3 year old phone. there's just something "unnatural" about typing on glass. your senses need to feel that keyboard feeling. make sense?

    to me it makes a lot of sense, I have to agree, I just don't like it, the glass typing experience.
    Didn't like the typing on a storm 2 either, apparently I have a need for real buttons under my fingers.

    Sometimes when text pop up on the home screen on an iPhone it can be embarrassing if your mother is using your phone and some one just sext'ed you.
