I have a friend who regularly sends a text message from her phone but I cannot reply or else I have not figured it out. Can a BB send phone text messages?

Depends on which BlackBerry you have. Which one (and carrier) do you have?

check your sms settings in Settings or Options on the BlacKberry.

Check with the Mobile Operator the correct correct Message Centre and whether its GSM or GPRS.

Nextel doesn't use GSM/GPRS

But the issue is Nextel does not allow outgoing SMS on their Blackberries. You have to use a Nextel phone to do SMS. If you know who sent you the message reply to it at
[email address] (replacing it with their sms number)

Teleflip deosn't always work either. Tried to teleflip myself. We moved over from AT&T with our cell phones to Cingular with the BB back in mid-March and the DNS listing has yet to catch up with the change. I get an error message back that says:

We're sorry we were unable to deliver your message via Teleflip. No more delivery attempts will be made. Included is a list of recipients and the reason your message could not be delivered.

[email address]

There are no DNS entries for the hostname mobile.att.net. I cannot determine where to send this message.
