    Question Calling instead of sms

    Advertisement



    I've got an issue sending sms using the COMPOSE icon in my theme. It first brings up my addy book to select who it goes to. Then, it goes to the text box to enter the message. 97% of the time it will go to the text box, and others it calls them. Its getting pretty annoying. I'm completely baffled why my curve does this. I send a boat load of sms to friends and esp the gf but my friend Donte is the only one that does so. I've even deleted and re-added him in the addy book. I'm using the T-mo zen(icons on bottom dock) theme and have updated the os to .173 with no fix due to the update. Any ideas?

    Mine did that yesterday! It does right for my hubby but it tried to call my Brother in Law. I thought I hit something wrong but it did it twice and I had to hit menu, compose SMS.

    Hmmm I've never experienced this but I never use the compose icon so that could be why. I use the keyboard shortcuts to get the addressbook then quick scroll to who I want. Maybe try that till someone posts a solution to your problem

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Sorry I never use the the compose icon, but when I just tried it it kept calling the person. I think for the most part its meant for emails. Since the corporate ties with BBs. That is the reason its calling. When you do go to compose just hit menu when the name is highlighted and then select sms.

    Sorry that's all I can think off.

    I have my left key set to Compose and it works find with my husband, though he is the one I text the most. I hit the trackball on his name and it lists the numbers I can chose from. But with my brother in law, it just started to dial. Light bulb!! My BIL just has one number under him, I wonder if that has something to do with it. Hmmm, must test. LOL

    My findings:

    * If they just have one number and you click compose, highlight the name and click - it will call them. You have to do Menu, Compose SMS, once you do this once, it will automatically do it from then on.

    * If you have an email under their name, it will compose an email first. You again have to select Menu, compose SMS and it will automatically go to SMS from then on.

    * If multiple numbers, but no email - see finding on just having one number.

    Re: Calling instead of sms

    I too have experienced this and I found out that the BB will perform the last action you performed. So for the person you would like to sms, select them manually once as sms and all future ones should default to the last action. However, there might be some logic with the 1 number stored, it may require that one number to be stored in the "mobile" field as opposed to the "work" or "home" field. Good luck!
