I rec'd my first SMS message today. Took a little research to figure what it was.
The phone vibrated twice, when I took it out of the case there were no message indicators on the locked screen nor when I unlocked it. When I looked at the message screen I saw the italicized envelope. There was no return address or name. Why is that? I've never used SMS before nor has anyone ever sent a message this way. It was a ligitemate message relating to a current event I am involved with.
From other posts on text messaging, the iDEN network doesn't support it. For me, I honestly don't care as I probably wouldn't text message anyway. I can send/receive email which to me is a much better option. I don't have anyone I need to communicate with that I can't do either by the DC or by email. I understand that for others text messaging may be a good option, but it's not necessary for me.
