Default Can't SMS on nextel 7100i (I think I deleted app)

Please Login to Remove!

I think I may have deleted the app required to do SMS. My 7100i nextel BB only shows MMS that doesn't work. Is there an app for SMS? If so, what is it and where can I get it? I hate to say it but I have to joing the texting league. As you can see from the deleted app I was against it, but now drinking the coolaid.

SMS should be an option in the general Mail application. When you create a new message you should get a choice of which kind to create. I recall some controversy over Nextel not supporting SMS on certain model Blackberrys though. I really don't know if the 7100i was one of 'em.

Wanted to update this thead so it may be of help to someone else.

7100i is not SMS capable, only MMS. In my situation after talking to people all day and reading a lot of posts my SIM card is not MMS compatible. Apparently early 7100i did not posses MMS capable cards.

Supposidly my local dealer is going to help me get on a newer card that will alow me to MMS.

We will see...

You never will be able to send SMS with the iDEN BB. You can send and receive MMS and receive SMS.
Sending MMS requires having the MMS messaging plan on the BB.

Update:

Went into my dealer today and they put a newer SIM in my phone and swapped over the service. Believe it or not, I can now MMS. Sprint support was right (only took 3 phone calls). Hope this tread helps someone.
