Sms Help
ok , so i called Cingular and got my unlock emailed with 48 hours ... i unlocked my BB8700c .... then all of a sudden cannot send/recieve SMS text messages !! i have been on the phone with CNGULAR all day and they are no help at all . my wife and i text all day and this sucks .... any ideas ?

God if that happened to me I'd flip out. The only advice i can offer you is a re-boot. I am no where near an expert with blackberries so if that doesn't work I'm clean outta ideas.

Sorry joaquin.

Good luck!

I cant seem to get sms message through either.(n) Cant send or recieve.
Everything else seems to work ok.

That is a new one for me never heard of that problem. Can I ask you why you choose to use the text messages instead of just sending it through teleflip so you don't have to have a text package.

Gunny_Tx 07-13-2006 09:12 PM

I would rather text so I can recieve an answer back. Right now I cant get any inbound texts.

hotsauce26 07-13-2006 09:37 PM

oh alright,I see i take it that your wife doesn't have the option to return. I am confused actually i send email text messages to people who don't have a data plan and they are able to reply to me...

I have a 10.00$ a month 1000 SMS plan on cingular. It is alot easier than teleflip 'cus its right there and alot quiker than teleflip. I like SMS for quik hellos and questions alot.

I got it fixed, cingular had a setting wrong in the acct. Works good now.

I dont use it that much so I just pay as I go.

Dylan Trott 07-14-2006 07:07 AM

Oh ok cool! Geeze I did that pay as you go texts, but it's 0.10 for every text sent or recived! So I would get messages that said something like, "Hi, Call me 2night" over and over and over. And it became about 100 dollors a month with the occasional response. So I invest in 10.00$ a month for 1000.
