    BB SMS messages sending multiple Texts

    Advertisement



    Anyone have an idea on this one. When i send a text message to a non BB user (iphone or wife's Samsung Instinct) if I reply to a message they sent me, they get 2 text messages. 1 with my new message and 1 with there original text that got included in the reply. i have seen this with a few other friends that i text. But it mainly happens to users that are not able to get MMS messages and are limited to the 160 character limit in text messages. I have to always start a new text message to them to avoid the double texts.
    Again with other BB useers i can just hit reply and keep the tread going with no multi text issues.
    Is this a "feature" or a "bug" is it something that can be turned off with something in the settings. Or turned off through Nextel or through my online access to my Nextel account.
    I have combed through all the settings on the phone so far and i am not able to find a way to turn this off.
    Ideas?

    Before you even enter any sort of text in the reply mms/sms hit the berry button and select "clear field" proceed as normal and there won't be multiple messages showing. Hope this helps

    No problem. There is also a software update to go through 4/3/09 which is supposed to take care of that issue but we'll see.

    For all of you Telus Mobility Blackberry Users out there. SMS for the 8350i blackberry is in the finaly stages. I am currently loading a Beta version of the OS onto my unit. Along with the sms it will be correcting a couple of other issues on the unit. Many of us taught this day would never come. But it is almost ready for the Offical release.
