    sms text problem

    Advertisement



    Whenever I try to respond to a sms text message, I can not type anything into the 8100. MMS works fine but no text appears in SMS messaging. Any ideas?

    welcome to Pinstack dougborn47!

    so when you click reply you can see the body of the SMS just not the text you're typing in?

    Yes. Just a number 1 on the right side of the screen and no added text being shown.

    oh duh, i forgot. even if you have a BB data plan (which includes MMS) you still have to purchase a seperate SMS text plan.

    Re: sms text problem

    Im not sure thats your problem....I am on TMO and can send and receive text messages without a messaging plan (at a cost of 15 cents each)...doug, who is your carrier? I would try a Hard Reset - Pull your batery and leave it out for a minute. Do you have a data plan? Perhaps resending your service books would help (not sure if SBooks impact SMS but cant hurt).

    If still a problem check Options>SMS Text and post your settings.

    Re: sms text problem

    I dont knwo that it will fix your problem but ->

    Click on the Set up Internet Email link (in my t mobile) and you will find a Service Books link on the left side of the screen.

    Let us know if this works. Did you try a hard reset?
