Text messaging on AT&T
I bought a unlocked BB 8700G on TigerDirect last week. Phone is great and I can make and receive calls just fine. Texting does not seem to work at all. Can neither send or receive them. My setup seems correct. I'm running BB 4.2 software.
I tried searching but found nothing I haven't already tried... Any ideas??
Unfortunately when you use an unlocked phone texting nor data are promised(trust me I work for them)

If those things don't fix it, it's network or SIM card related and you need to call your Service Provider
