So I went out and picked up a Blackberry 8703e on my own nickel, and have had it for a few weeks now, and just logged on to check my usage. I see that I have the BB Unlimited Data plan and Unlimited Text Messaging, which are correct. Here's the surprise, I check my usage, and I have 0 Text messages out of Unlimited allowed, and 33 Casual SMS messages out of 0 allowed. I thought I had been text messaging all along.
I was going on the BB into the Address Book, and now I see that I was hitting SMS [entry]. Work sends me text messages as well, but evidently they are shownig up as SMS messages now, when they were text messages on my old phone. How do I text message? My son is on the same plan as me with a different phone, and we were what I thought was text messaging back and forth the other day, but I have 0 text messages. He has only Text Messages listed on his portion of the bill. So how was I SMS messaging and he text messaging?
I am really confused about the difference. I read a number of SMS and Text messaging threads, and am just not getting it. What's the difference, and how do I go back to just old text messaging between phones?
