Solution #1: "Mark as Unread" option

Posted on 2009-12-11 10:58 UTC by Rami Zalloum.

it happens that we receive an SMS and after we open we realize that it requires more attention than we can give at the moment, (angry girlfriend for example) it would be great if you can mark it as Unread such that we can come back to it later

Solution #2: "Send to calendar" feature

Posted on 2009-12-11 11:24 UTC by Rami Zalloum.

it would be great if you have an option for SMS that allows you to create a calendar entry from an SMS you recieved or a part of it

 

for instance you recieve a party notification or a meeting request from your boss, etc, it would be great to convert to a calendar entry on the spot without having to do so manually

sometimes you recieve an SMS that requires a future action from you and you don't want to forget it, it would be great if you can have an email-like for follow up flag

Solution #5: Advanced search/filter

Posted on 2009-12-11 11:52 UTC by Rami Zalloum.

it would be great have the ability to filter SMS based on the following attributes

 

1- Date

2- Direction (in/out)

3- Recipient

4- Delivered/failed

5- Containing Text: (this might require a lot of processing, but if it's available under the restriction of having additional filters (e.g. the search field is activated only if certain Recipient is selected, or certain period is selected)

Solution #7: Send SMS direct from phone UI

Posted on 2009-12-12 22:40 UTC by Randall Arnold.

This functionality is mysteriously missing.  I want the ability, like S60 phones have, to select SMS or voice call to contacts while in the phone UI.  Granted, the feature is supported in the messenger, but I believe we should be able to activate that messenger app from the phone contacts list.

Solution #8: Allow retrieving existing SMS from other phones

Posted on 2009-12-13 20:35 UTC by Fred Pacquier.

At least Nokia phones, SYmbian phones, S60 phones ?...

The N900 Calendar makes it easy to retrieve an existing calendar from another phone (E71 in my case), directly through Bluetooth.

I could not find any way to do the same with the existing SMS on that phone, not even indirectly through PC Suite (which "does not fully support this device" :-).

I think this should be standard functionality, and easily accessible through Conversations.

Solution #9: Send to Group

Posted on 2009-12-15 14:52 UTC by Frank Banul.

Add the ability to define groups of SMS recipients and be able to send an SMS to the entire group. Also, the sent receipts should be combined into a group format as well. When sending to the group, only the group should show up in the sent list.

Solution #11: Allow SMS-forwarding via e-mail and IM

Posted on 2009-12-17 14:25 UTC by Oskar Welzl.

When you open a single SMS and tap "forward", then select a contact, you can only choose from the contact's phone numbers. Maemo tries to offer an integrated messaging experience, so w
