Default New BB, couple of issues

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
This is my very first Blackberry. I have the new 8350i from Nextel. There are a few issues that I am concerned about. For one, my SMS/MMS doesn't seem to sync like it should. I don't recieve texts for a few hours after they've been sent to me. Anyone to send/recieve faster? One more thing, not that it is much of a concern, but when I bring up my recent call list, it shows "My Number: Unknown Number." Is that a SIM issue?

Thanks in advance,

Thomas

P.S. My bad about so many questions, figured it was better than multiple posts.

SMS is a phone issue not a BB data issue. I would call your carrier.

You need to call your own phone for your number to appear in the phone app.

I ended up checking my voicemail and got my number to show up. My SMS/MMS seem to be acting better. I think my sim was loose or something. This morning my radio would move anywhere beyond off. I did a battery + sim pull and got it to work.
