OK, let's start with the basics.

Do you have a valid SIM card in there? And is the BB on a network?

I'd love to assist you, but I can't read Haiku. Would you please edit your post to be normal? Thanks.

First thing you should do is download the user's guide from RIM (I'm assuming since you didn't get it with the phone) and read to find out how to use the basics.

There's no "send button" per se. You need to press the trackwheel and select send.
