    If your carrier is at&t call them and see if they have your account provisioned correctly. They just messed mine up out of the blue the other day and I called and they fixed it in about two minutes.

    Try again in the morning. you can also try a battery pull. Sometimes that helps as well.

    Ok, I had the same problem with my phone. This was the only thread that mentioned this problem.

    However a real solution to the problem wasn't mentioned...
    I spent a good hour on the phone with ATT Service Center to get it fixed... But the solution is actually pretty simple.

    It's a problem with the Data Coding on the BlackBerry.
    It seems that it and other newer phones use a type called "UCS2".
    Older phones wont support this, so texts will either be garbled or wont go through at all.

    If you go to your Settings > SMS Text > Data Coding, and change it to "7 bit", it'll now work with all other phones.

    It'll also let it work with the AIM text service as well. =P
