| | 7100i & receiving text msgs from a 3rd party app
Please Login to Remove!
I currently use an i730 for work. I receive snpp messages sent from an app back at the office. I am then presented with a list of 5 custom replies of which I can choose one and it's sent back to the office and updates my status in the app.
It's been a nightmare getting the right combination of Nextel services to get this to work right. You actually need to have 2 different services for it to work for some reason...I guess the format of the messages that the app sends to the phone are different than the reply that gets sent back. There is no single plan that Nextel can come up with that will cover the whole shebang. Some of the guys are getting newer phones like the 860 and even though they are getting the EXACT same services I have on my phone, they can't receive or reply properly.
Needless to say, I'm a bit leery of getting the 7100i if I'm going to have the same prob. Is anyone else out there using the 7100i to receive messages in the field sent via a 3rd party app?
