What type of BB are you using ?

Since MIKE iDEN BBs (7510.7520.7100i) are not compatible with sms

Well, you can receive ( i just tested with my 7510) , but no menu for "Compose SMS" or "SMS xxxxxx" in contacts

If you are using a PCS BB (7250,8700,7130) you should have the same functionnality as a normal phone

And Text messaging fees, if you have the latest unlimited sms function (code SMSGULD10) will be 0$ for reception and sending

But, if you use the email address instead (to send), well that goes under your data package

note that SMS sent from the TELUS website (without callback #) or by email, they arrive without a sender
