Nextel Blackberry Users
Before you say it, I did search!!
I found so many questions and different answers with different dates that I still don't know what the answer is.
I just got my first Blackberry.
How do I send a text message? I don't care if it is SMS or MMS. I just want to be able to send a text.
Thanks for any help.

Ok well from one noob to another go to messages click the scroll wheel and hit compose mms .... That's how it is on the 7100i
You can't do it on a 7520
Okay. I have a 7520. Thank you Murpheous. That is what I needed to know. It can't be done.
That sucks. Now that i have a full keyboard I can't send text messages.
you can also send messages to
With teleflip you dont need to know what network the user is on.
Okay. I remember seeing those answers. Thank you to all.
But is it possible to receive text? I don't think so from what I've read. I think they have to send it to my email, right?
I cannot seem to setup my BB email.
yes, you can recieve text messages. But, most of the time you can't tell who they are from. Unless they use
also you will not be able to reply to the text message that comes in.
I kinda figured out a way around the text messaging on the 7520. What I did was to create a gmail account that forwards directly to my 7520. All nextel sms users can send to a phone number, or email address. My wife can send to the gmail address from her I830, and I can reply directly back to her using her nextel sms email address (what nextel didn't tell us) the sms address for nextel phones is: (replace 5555551212 with the number you are text messaging) this works great for us.
If anyone else wants to try it out, PIN me and I'll set up a gmail invite for you. Make sure you send me your name and email address to set it up.
what does MMS stand for?
Can someone tell me how to disable the GPS Tracking Locator on my 7100i?
Lots of good ideas. Maybe I should have just gotten the 7100. I like the keyboard though.
If you are still in the 14 day return window, go get an unlocked 8700 or 7290-
Kick in 10 more bucks than your paying for nextel UNL bb, and go get t-mobile UNLIMITED text messaging/ul data and 1000 voice minutes- at edge capable speed.
If TMO coverage suits you-youll be lovin life.
Your milage may vary...
If T-mobile ever covers more of Iowa besides Des Moines, i would ditch 7520 for a 7290 in a minute. Cingular covers alot of Iowa, buts its BB plans is as bad as Nextel. Maybe, I will get a 515 des moines number and let t-mobile roam on cingular all the time where i live in 319
I know somewhere around the forums, a user has made a listing of the sms email addresses for the carriers. You can also (on some sites) go to the website of the carrier and get that address. I remember some but not all the email address.
Sprint: (replace sprintpcs with nextel for nextel users)
Those are the ones I remember. Hope it helps. I usually program the email address into my address book under the name of the person so I don't have to remember, I just select email the person and that's it. Works well for me, I even get pictures too. Not bad for a BB 7510 from Nextel!
Sprint-- @messaging.sprintpcs.com (not positive on this one)
U.S. Cellular-- @email.uscc.net
Bell Mobility-- @txt.bellmobility.com
Just wanted to prove I knew where the search button was.
