In your Blackberry Address Book just save her email address as "phonenumber@teleflip.com". Whenever you want to text her, just write an email to her at that address. Easy easy.

Nextel Blackberrys do not do SMS. The only workaround is the way suggested by jacobsaa.

I am on T-Mobile. The SMS is provided with them.

Skeems - With that, you should contact your provider. If you are paying for that, they may be able to credit you for the amount of time it has not been working.

Try going to email set up and enter your information in there. You will first have to create an account and add email addresses that you want sent to your blackberry. When you create one, you will have a blackberry.net address.

I have a TMobile 7230 Blackberry with the basic messaging package and I don't have the SMS option on the hidden menu when I click an address with the scroll wheel. I have called Tmobile multiple times and they have yet to help me. I have software version 4.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

To use the message services on the blackberry you need to go to the carrier's webmail site and register your PIN with the blackberry webmail service.

If you are a corporate user, you'll probably have your own Blackberry server. Get with your IT department on that one.

Yes, I can SMS. However, I'll email almost exclusively as even with a corporate account and our BES we get billed $.10 for each SMS!!!
