I'm not sure where you searched, but you cannot send SMS from the 7100i. This issue is not limited to Boost SIM cards.

Also, teleflip.com is out of business.

iDEN BB's don't support SMS - no matter what SIM you have in them.

Go to howards tutorial and download the service books. You can text under the mms and it gets to you just the same as sms.

Instead of telling everybody how they cant SMS text, how about telling them how much better MMS texting is or maybe just let the thread slide by and let someone help somebody.
