Default Can't Send SMS?? *Blackberry Newb*

Please Login to Remove!

As the title says I'm a Blackberry Newb. I figured it was about time I got one. I hear you can control the world or something like that from these things, so why not. Anyway I'm on the Blackberry site and it says the following models can only receive incoming SMS Only.


Whats this about?

or I can buy like a $400 model 8700c with support

My crap $100 sprint phone can send and receive sms

Some carriers do not have the functionality to send SMS messages. I think Nextel is one of those carriers. I am sure as popular as it is, they will delevope a platform sooner than later
