Default 8350i no texting on an 888#

Please Login to Remove!

I posted this question in the carrier specific, but would like to know if it is possible specific to the phone.

My carrier is SoutherLinc and they say I cannot text with an 888#.

Anybody have any comments on this issue

Is your number being forwarded to the 888#? That's probably the issue right there.

Default I now have two numbers but still not what I want

I have had the 888# since my first Blackberry the 7100i. From day one I have had ONLY one number, it is not being forwarded or anything like that. It would not text at all.

When I purchased the 8350i I was hoping to be in the texting business, because the rep said, yep, it will do text. Well, yes and no. I could send, but not receive. Took the phone back, and he came up with the idea of keeping the 888# and giving me an ADDITIONAL number. He said your calls to 888 would go to voice mail and I could use the regular number to send texts with.

I went along, but like anybody else that is a customer of a business, they do not want to be forwarded to voicemail. I am not THAT big on texting anyway.

That is when I came up with the idea of forwarding the 888 calls that is my secondary number to the first "new" number. But no answers for that idea yet.

Also when I called the "tech" people at Southernlinc. they said it was the Blackberry that was not allowing the 888 texting, not anything they are doing or not doing.

This is SoutherLinc not Nextel, Boost, Sprint or the others.

I am trying to lay all the dirty laundry out here for all to see. Sorry, if this seems long winded.

Thanks again for your interest and please keep coming up with ideas or solutions.

Interesting. Never came across something like this before. Sorry I can't be of more help.
