    Not receiving texts

    Advertisement



    New user, just trying to figure out the basics. I am not receiving my normal text messages, I tried to send some from another phone and it keeps showing no messages on my pearl. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

    Service books wont really apply to SMS...Do the Battery pull and try sending yourself a text message.To Your own Phone Number..Lets start with that.

    actually you do need the service books for mms.

    also make sure that they aren't going into an 'sms' folder.

    have you tried sending one FROM your pearl to yourself?

    Service Books have nothing to do with MMS....MMS and SMS are GSM Functions..Reliant on the GSM Network to Work,They have nothing to do with the blackberry server or RIM.I work for T-Mobile..8-)...I feel pretty comfortable saying this.As long as you have a Minimum of "gprs" as your network indicatior.You should be able to send and recieve SMS Fine..MMS on the pearl does need to have the BB internet add on to work..So I can see why you would think service books.But,SMS is another issue all together...

    Battery pull did nothing. Just to make sure I am doing this right, I access the regular voicemail and text messages under the "messages" icon, correct? When I go to messages, it simply says no messages, and if I hit select, it says "No message services configured".

    Re: Not receiving texts

    do this and see if it helps...if not, you will need to send service books.

    options/advanced options/host routing table
    click menu (key to left of trackball) and choose register now.

    Also, I went to messages, then to send sms text, put in my own number and tried it and it worked fine. But there are other texts that are from cingular (ringtones) and texts i tried from other phones that are not showing up.

    That says "registration sent", i have already tried that.

    Under service books I have nothing listed, only a "close" option.

    Re: Not receiving texts

    some cingular ringtones won't work for your pearl...it won't work that you tried to send it to your phone from another

    if you are looking for specific ringtones, i'd look at www.mobile41.com or www.tuneusin.com
    can you download the songs to the pc and transfer them with desktop manager and your usb cable...im assuming you don't have a data plan?

    I am not really worried about the ringtones (i did those from my computer now), but I tried to send myself just a normal text message from another phone to the pearl and it is not showing them anywhere.
