The following describes basic operations and useful tips when receiving and reading a message.
Operation of Other Applications
If applications other than the messaging application are operating when a message is received, e606 will
receive the message as a background operation, in which case the message ringtune will not sound but
an envelope icon displayed on the top of the display screen will indicate that there is a newly received
message. Also, during another operation the contents of the Multimedia message/Video message will
not be downloaded automatically, even if the Set Receive Mode is set as Auto Receive.
