Hello,

This may sound like a silly question, but my wife has a blackberry and told me that whenever I send her a text with my iphone, it ends up in her "mailbox" so the text is treated like email (which is funny because her texts always show up quickly in my Iphone text application). She showed me the Blackberry messenger application that allows her to have instant text conversations with other Blackberry users. Are there any third party applications for both of our phones that would allow us to have simple/immediate text conversations? I am sure this is old news to everyone, but any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    There is no similar Blackberry Messenger app just for the iPhone.

    Not sure how a text sent with the iPhone's Messages application which must be addressed to a cell phone number with area code is being received as an email with your wife's Blackberry.

    On the BlackBerry, the 'Messages' icon is a catch-all inbox. It collects messages from any messaging account linked to the device (email, text messages, mms, PIN messages, etc.)

    If she wants to separate her text messages into a different location, that's actually quite simple to do.
    On the device, change this setting:
    *Messages > Options > General Options > SMS and Email Inboxes = Separate*

    This will create a new icon on the device specifically for text messages.
