Checking your messages

Depending on your notification settings, HTC EVO 4G LTE plays a sound, vibrates, or displays the message briefly in the status bar when you receive a new message. A new message icon is also displayed in the status bar.
To open and read the message, you can:
  • Open the Notifications panel, and then tap the new message notification.
  • Go to the Messages app and open the message.

Viewing and saving an attachment from a multimedia message

  • If there’s a media attachment such as a photo or video in a received message, tap it to view the content.
  • To save the attachment, tap the multimedia message, and then choose to save from the options menu.
  • If the attachment is a contact (vCard), tap it to view the contact information, then tap Save to add to your contacts.
  • If the attachment is an appointment or event (vCalendar), tap it to choose the calendar where to save it, and then tap Import.
Tip: If you are concerned about the size of your data downloads, you can choose to check the size and subject first before you download a multimedia message. On the Messages screen, tap > Settings > Multimedia messages (MMS). Clear the Auto-retrieve option.
