If the device has an IT policy on it the SMS function could have been disabled. Go to Options > Security Options > General Setting. Scroll down to see if an IT Policy is listed. If anything is listed then you have an IT policy. No way to tell if that policy is blocking SMS. If your connected to a BES server contact your system admin for help.

Remember, please try searching first!

Need a screenshot? ... Like JavaLoader?
Try using BBscreen .....Use JL_Cmder!
or BBScreenShooter!

I was able to do it with my 7250. Have you tried resending the service books.

within the mailbox icon, you click the trackball and dont see compose SMS?

Of course, options SMS text - disable choose no
