    Noobie here - please help!

    I've had my new S4 for 2 days. I keep getting two copies of SMSs I've received in my combined inbox, and can't figure out how to turn it off. (They don't come to my primary email account.) I also get strange SMSs with no content showing up (when I don't think I've tried to send anything) asking me to reply with E to send it to an email in English or F to send in French.

    Is there any way to turn off SMS getting pushed to my inbox? Rogers tech support says no, it's in the software and it's not able to be changed. I figure you all are probably smarter than them...

    Thanks, K

    Just found the same thing here. Could be convenient if you want to keep sms messages in the cloud. But I dont.
    I think I found the fix.
    1. Open the settings for the account where it is ssving them.
    2. Select More Settings.
    3. Uncheck Sync SMS.

    That has to do the trick. Thank you so much for finding such an easy fix! I didn't even see that more settings existed.
    Goes to prove Rogers doesn't know much...

    The 'Uncheck Sync SMS' option does not work for me. Any other options?

    I found mine in "Sync Messages" from the email page. From inbox, go to more, settings, select account, then scroll right down..
