    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??

    Hi Harry - Welcome to Pinstack!

    Go to Options>SMS Text> and make sure there is the service center phone number in the "Service Center" field, and "Network to Send Over" says GSM. If those are set correctly, then go to Security Options>Firewall, make sure firewall is enabled (yes, I said enabled) and then make sure SMS is unchecked. If those things don't fix it, it's network or SIM card related and you need to call your Service Provider
