    sms

    When a text message comes in is there a way to have the t650 have a SMS notification icon if I do not view the text. In other words, now a msg comes in and instead of going to the message I press “ok”, maybe I’m busy and can’t respond or whatever. Then I forget the text came in, but because I saw the msg and pressed ok the phone does not notify me with a sms icon. However, when a voicemail comes in, once I clear it from the alerts menu, I still see the VM icon. How can I make this setting stay for SMS msgs? Or is there no such thing as an SMS icon?

    i havn't been able to figure this out either. I started reading the sms right away now cuz I always forgot it too.
    Hate to sound like a Butler salesman, but Butler does have settings to stop the SMS popup. It will still make noise, and Butler can remind you of it at whatever interval you choose. I have mine set for 1 minute, so if i choose to ignore an SMS, it will remind me in 1 minute.

    but does that reminder pop up and take up the whole screen? I'd like it to pop up and then disappear but leave a notification icon

    Hi there... I think I may have a couple options:

    The first would be to simply uncheck Show Message Alerts under Prefs-> Messaging-> Tones. When a message comes you would still receive the alert but instead of that big box you'd get a flashing star in the top left corner. Thus you can check it at your leisure, but that star would remain until you acknowledge the message.

    The second option which I haven't tested is a free app calles PJBtime. I happened to notice it next to the Treohelper download icon. http://rallypilot.sourceforge.net/treohelper.html

    It has a configurable amount of time that you want the message to stay on the screen before fading away on its own.

    I am looking to send out a mass text message to say 30 people at the same time. As far as I can see, the 650 will only let enter one contact at a time...does anyone know how to enter more than one contact at a time to expedite this process? Thanks
