The BlackBerry is great for organising your messages and media. Even though the BlackBerry displays only the most recent messages on the device, you can get the messages back that do not display, even those that have recently been deleted, by using the "Search" feature on the device. When a message is deleted, it is moved to the "Deleted" queue. If the deleted message in question is found by the Search function, you will not have the normal Messaging options available to you. However, you can copy the text from the message and send it in an e-mail to yourself, if desired.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the "Menu" button on the BlackBerry to display the Home screen.

  2. 2

    Scroll to and select the "Search" icon. Press the trackball or trackpad. The Search input box appears.

  3. 3

    Type the subject, or some text, from the message you are retrieving, and then scroll to and select the "Search" button. Press the trackball or trackpad. The Search feature scans the device for messages that contain the search text. A list of search results displays.

  4. 4

    Scroll to and select the message to view. Press the trackball or trackpad. The message is retrieved and displayed.
