You have an icon called sms & mms --> use that to send texts to anyone you want (after activating the phone of course). What was meant in some of the threads you've been reading is that technically the 8350i only does MMS, but if you do straight text (no pic sending, contacts, etc...) then the phone will communicate with sms only devices just fine (like the iphone for instance). And for music, dump roxio. Put your music on manually by plugging in the usb without DM loaded, and "open folder to view files". The phone will act as a mass storage device and you can drop your music anywhere you want. If you still insist that you need things synced across all your devices, use media player or just about anything out there EXCEPT for roxio. (You can get a copy of DM without it too). I dunno why they picked that one... it's buggy, bloated and just unfriendly.
