Default 7100i not displaying mms sender

Please Login to Remove!

I am not seeing who sends me a new sms (in my case an mms b/c of Nextel service) and i can't answer either. Is there a config or sthing that i can do to fix this?

with nextel when someone sends you a SMS type txt msg you will never see who the sender is however if someone sends you an MMS type txt msg you will see who it is from. it is possible someone is sending you SMS and not realizing that it will not id them not putting who it is from. MMS is commonly the format used for picture/video mail on other services but the BB 7100i uses a web portal to send its msgs and is not configured to use sms to do so. this is also the reason why you need a data plan to be able to txt msg but its too bad the nextel data plan does not include txt msgng
