    Hi All,

    If you want to separate out your SMSs and MMSs from your regular email inbox, just follow the below steps:

    1) In the Messages application, bring up the menu and select Options.
    2) Select General Options.
    3) In the SMS and Email Inboxes field, change the option to Separate and select Save.

    I've also put in some screenshots to guide the way!

    Probably because of the version of OS that you're running. You might have to install the latest version...

    I did that before, but they still show up under the general messages window. How exactly do they separate? Should a new icon be on the display window?

    I know this has probably been asked a million times but I tried doing a search and I couldn't find what I was looking for. Can I install OS 4.2 on my 8703e BB? I really need a "step by step" instruction. I have D/L the New Desktop manager but not the software on the phone itself. My present software on my BB is v4.1.0.352 (Platform 2.2.0165). Am I even making any sence? Lol... Basically what I am asking, is it possible to upgrade the actual software on my BB?

    4.2 OS has not and will not be released for 8703e and from what I'm hearing, they are going to discontinue that model soon.

    I also am a newbie with a 8100 Pearl (on Orange in the UK) and want to seperate my SMS and email folders but don't have an "SMS or email" at the bottom of the options page.

    This seems to be a common problem for Pearl users - see this thread:
    oh - I have to post 10 times before I can post URLs - oh well, it is
    BlackBerry Forums at > General BlackBerry Discussion > BlackBerry Discussion
    SMS and emails separate

    Any ideas?

    PoloboxUK, I know you're trying to find a solution to your issue, but can we not multipost about the same thing?

    I've answered in the other two, and I strongly believe it's an OS version issue...

    I have a BB curve. I followed your directions. I now have the two seperate views, however the SMS is not the primary screen for the Messages folder. How do I make this correction to SMS is the first thing I see in the messages folder?

    THANKS. THIS IS VERY NICE TIP. Now, if there was only a way to separate missed calls from my emails. I just dont like missed calls cropping up in between my emails.
