Default Text Message To Blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I`d like to send a web link to a friend using her Blackberry via text messaging. Is this how you do it?

She`s on Verizon so I was thinking [email address] but not really sure how you deliver clickable link to this kind of device.

Can anyone point me in right direction?

Thanks,
Rob

Try the Teleflip service.

Format is: [email address], where XXXxxxXXXX is the 10 digit telephone number. Teleflip is supposed to automatically ascertain which wireless carrier is associated with the phone number and apply the correct domain address.

If the phone is a sprint phone, the SMS address you list will work

If you are using an email client to a BB, why not just send a email? That is what BBs do, get email.

The BB will receive the SMS but SMS does nto support what you are trying to do. Like mitch send it as an Email.
