    Text Messaging...

    Advertisement



    okay so check it out...i use a boostmobile sim card in my 7100i. i have internet through opera mini, aim and all sorts of stuff...but i cannot receive or send text messages because my phone doesnt have any message service books...so heres my question...

    my friend has a plan through nextel....do you think that if i insert his sim, and he calls nextel and tells them he just got a blackberry, and needs the service books to be sent to the phone, that they'll do it, and then i can put my sim back in and the service books will be there, and allow me to finally tex? someone let me kno.

    Not sure if having the service books will help text messaging.
    When I had my 7100i, there was an extra charge for text messaging.
    And the few times I did get/send text messages I found extra charges
    on my bill for them, I think they were like .40 cents each or something.

    But you can still try sending the service books. If your friend has
    a BIS account, you can send the service books yourself.
    Needed to get a replacement 8330 Curve again, so I got a New pin and it's in my profile... Got 8330m now!

    It is possible that you might loose your Boost stuff, when you send
    the service books from your friends Nextel account.
