ok, explain this to me ..firstname.lastname@example.org = text page
= text page
= page or email?
= page or email?
I installed the vtext.com in as an email address into my address book of my bb under the persons name(bob for example). I then would select bobs name. options where as follows.
If i select mms it would put in 5551212 and send an mms to his phone and i would get charged 10 cents for text and 25 for pic or file included.
I was told by nextel persons I could select email bob , his address would show up
. I would select the vtext becasue I wanted the message to go to his phone. I then would compose and send . Guess what out of the 6 trys i sent to bob he wouldn't get the messages threw my BB sending as email. IF i selected mms he would get them just fine in minutes. its like there was a filter that would recognize the 10 digit number and not allow the email to be sent blocked in some away. I tryed this method per the nextel people to get around the mms fees they stated it would work but I never could get it to email at all. I tryed this with 3 people all on verizon and none of them would get the messages unless I select mms.
Can anybody explain this? What are the fees or plans for mms? I was told from them for the 15.00 net plan on my 870 i got unlimted email and mms. Now with a doubly more expensive plan I dont get any mms and can't EMAIL a phone. I have all 50 employees in a free internet account on yahoo and we email these phones all the time for free but sending from the BB its blocked for some reason. I even went as far as having a friend with his BB try the email to bob and it still wouldn't work he had the same results as me.
