I have a BB 7520 and can't figure out how to text message a non nextel phone? I tried using the email address of [email address] and it didn't work? Any suggestions?

in the Address Book, you can't select a name, press your scrollwheel and choose menu choice "SMS contact"?

klaw, you can't SMS to an email address, i.e., [email address], you can only SMS to the actual 10 digit number. If you wish to send an EMAIL, you can use the [email address] address.
