    Hi there, i seem to be sending all my text messages as MMS messages instead of SMS messages. Im not sure how to to change the setting for this. The "MY NUMBER" slot is empty and im thinking that maybe i need my own personal number in there ? if so, can someone tell me how to do it cause i cant work it out ....Cheers ..

    What BB do you have? I have to click on compose MMS to send an MMS.

    i have a BB 7100V I want to send SMS and not MMS but cant seem to see the option . If i go into "messages" click trackwheel to bring up the options, there is one for "Compose MMS" but not one for "Compose SMS"

    Not sure why..

    Anyone else experienced this? I always see both options, but I am on and 8700. Although I never had this problem on the 7100t either. Could it be the OS? Are you on BES or BIS? Maybe the provider doesn't allow it...

    Well, Nextel BlackBerries arent capable of sending SMS, could it be the same for the original poster's provider?

    Jesse. I have a 7100i nextel and I have the same features. No SMS. Just MMS. All my friends receive the texts as normal. Hope this helped.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    First of all, try a hard reset( pull the battery, leave it out for 30 seconds, and reinsert)
    If this doesn't work, try resending your service books. There should be a post on how to do that. Its possible that your SMS service book might not be there. I would definitely try that before you wipe the handheld. And if you do wipe it, be sure to backup your BB if you're not on BES

    Software 4.0 does not allow mms messaging. Also, maybe mms is not supported by your provider.

    Did you try clicking the trackwheel on the contact, in the address book?
