hey all i just bought a new blackberry with a nextel service and i have a few nagging questions... i wanted to know if i can receive and send regular text messages and how cause nextel says i cant do that cause i can only received emails. also do i really need the web mail service so the phone can work, cause nextel also says that i need it otherwise the phone will not work. they also said that i cant download any java apps. if anybody has any answers please let me know i really do not want to return the phone or pay the 35 fee for the web mail service. thanks

As far as I know, NO you can not send SMS or Text messages, unless you send them through as an email (SEARCH BUTTON is good for finding that thread!). I do believe you need the web mail service or you would just have an ordinary phone. Plus why wouldn't you want the service? You got a blackberry for that use hopefully....you too, will soon be an addict and want that service, then you will fit in with the rest of use crackberry addicts!
