I understand what you are saying but I can't categorize myself as "most people". Google's g mail at least gives a person the option to hide the thread or to see the thread. I believe it would be more worthwhile to give the user the option to what they want not dictate what they'll get. I don't use gmail as my default on my phone and have the stock email directed towards another email. It concerns having a business email. I can't accept an answer from Google that at best is telling, "tough, deal with it". At least that's what it seems like. I'm not trying to be hard but it would be so much appreciated to hear a solution other than I have to use a 3rd party email client or get some other app in order to make it work. Can't we take the approach, "ok.....let's make it work!", instead of, "we're trying to make you change the way you do it by not offering it"?
I don't typically complain about things but as I have to do business and keeping accountability is a must concerning communications I don't want to make my primary job sifting through emails to keep trains of thought together. Also, I like to keep my phone "clean" as I call it by not adding all kinds of extra apps that tend to bog down the system with the potential to corrupt basic o/s over time. Am I making sense? Thanks again though.
When you say that you have other phones that work this way, what other phones do you have? Are they other Android Phones, or would they be Blackberry phones?
I understand why you would want to thread the messages, and your right, the default non gmail email app could be more robust than what it is.
blackberry and android phone.
Ok... the blackberry and other android phone were programmed to do email threading. That was added by the skin of the manufacturer to extend the functionality of the email app.
The only way to get the threading is to use another app, or to get a different android phone. I know that is not the answer that you wanted, but those are the only options at this point in time.
You are correct on all points in your response. I appreciate the effort to help me solve this issue. The only thing that I have been able to do is point out my disgruntlement to Verizon and Samsung and in Google Groups about the items I find issue with concerning ICS. I get the impression that ICS is still in a development stage of understanding. There has been different levels of understanding how the functions on the device works from various ppl that I have spoken to. I'm at a loss for words.
Unfortunately, we cannot get everything we want in an OS. There are a few items I wish that ICS had, but I have found workarounds for everything I did in the past so far.
A couple of things I miss from my Droid X
Like I said, I miss these items, but still love ICS and do not want to go back to Motorola's 'Blur' skin. ICS runs a lot better, quicker, and cleaner than my X ever did.
Have a good day, and hope you find a solution that works well for you.
