    Smile Text message question

    Advertisement



    I am a new Blackberry user. I was wondering if someone could tell me how to send a text message to a contacts mobile phone from the contacts list. Each time I have selected compose e-mail it only sets up to send an e-mail to the contact not a text message to there phone. Can any of you help me with this? I have a BB 8700e

    while inside your email application you should be able to click trackwheel and choose 'compose SMS text'
    if the contact has more than one number, it will let you choose the number too.

    Also when you highlight the contact and open the menu you should be able to choose to sms the contact.

    Re: Text message question

    My next question is, how do I get my Bluetooth earpice to work with my BB? I have tried several times but it seem to be trying to pair with something other than my earpice.

    Re: Text message question

    Are there any other BT devices around you? Your device may have a wierd name that you dont recognize. I changed my discoverable name to something so instead of H700 it will say something totally different.

    Sorry for the dumb question but can someone tell me the different between these? Not sure which one is the voice mail to set a ringtone to it.

    The one for Voice Mail is not listed there - you should see SMS Text. That will be for text messages and voice mail.
