I just recently purchased a blackberry 7290 when a friend informed me that normal texting doens't work on it. Instead of immediately returning it, i need to know if there is a way that i can get texting to work on it and if i was misinformed or if i should just return it for something else. keep in mind i run my service through t-mobile(if that matters)...
Not sure about texting, but it seems I could. Its been a few years since I had one in my hands and I didn't use it as my phone but had a data program. I believe with a data program I could bb messenger and text
just looked up the details and it says it supports SMS so I believe you can use it
Texting is Different from DATA,
Txting = SMS
BBM = Data .
Get the Msging plan from TMO, and you will be fine. .All Phones since freaking like 95 have been sms capable.
7290 is capable of texting, don't take it back! With your regular phone plan that includes text messaging, you will be able to text just like on any other cell phone.
