If you want to be able to text people like every other carrier does, you have to add MMS messaging (Unlimited with Nextel is like $15 if I remember correctly).
Its kind of confusing, I know. If you add the MMS service (or dont, but you pay per message) you can text just like a regular cell phone, and it's only like this that I know of with Nextel. At least they finally added it!
