You can group messages on the BlackBerry Curve by e-mail account or by sender. Once messages are deleted on the device, the messages are not immediately deleted. The messages remain in the Deleted Queue until the device is synced to a computer using the BlackBerry Desktop Manager. If the deleted messages are still in the Deleted Queue, you can recovery them with the search function on the Curve.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the "Menu" key on the BlackBerry Curve to show all icons on the Home screen.

  2. 2

    Scroll to the "Search" icon and press the trackball. The search input form opens.

  3. 3

    Type the subject line from the deleted text message. Scroll to the "Search" option and press the trackball. The search results list appears after a few seconds.

  4. 4

    Scroll to and select the deleted message.

Tips and warnings

  • Note that messaging features will not be available for messages in the Deleted Queue. Copy the SMS text and paste it into another message, such as an e-mail message, to recover the content of the message. Send the email to yourself.
