    7100i on Nextel can't SMS (think I deleted app)

    Advertisement



    I _think_ I may have deleted the application that allows me to do SMS texting (I was very anti-texting but now have a need for this capability). All that shows up on my BB is MMS and attempts to use it fail. Can someone let me know if I'm supposed to have an application on my BB for texting and if so, where can I get it?

    Many thanks.

    As I remember when I used nextel that network doesn't support the use of sms texting from blackberrys or other devices. You have to "email" you text messages.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Updating the thread to help others.

    7100i is not SMS capable, only MMS (as poster indicated above).

    Sprint tells me my MMS is not working because my SIM is old and not MMS capable. Local dealer will help me get to a MMS capable sim and we'll see what happens next.

    I'm figuring 2 days without a phone and a lot of head scratching. Progress...

    Update:

    Went into my dealer today and they put a newer SIM in my phone and swapped over the service. Believe it or not, I can now MMS. Sprint support was right (only took 3 phone calls). Hope this tread helps someone.
