Use Filters to Control Message Delivery

Use BlackBerry’s built-in filtering capabilities to filter messages or classify certain ones as Level 1 messages.

Imagine you have just sent your manager an urgent request and you know he’ll be replying sometime soon. You would like to be notified the instant he replies to your message, given the importance of the issue. You could stare at your BlackBerry, waiting patiently for those transmission arrows to appear in the top-right portion of your screen, indicating a message is on its way. But you’ve got other work to do!

You can use a filter in conjunction with your device profiles to automatically notify you when his reply arrives, so you can get on with your life. Using this hack will let you avoid constantly checking your device for new messages—an action that brings down the “spouse approval factor” for the BlackBerry.
