Angry BIG mistake.... anyone have answer?

Please Login to Remove!

last Friday I had my Cingluar number ported over to my
Nextel Blackberry 7100i. (why pay a cell phone bill if my company will pay it, right?)

well, the phone works fine... maing receiving calls etc. the problem is with text messages, and this is a HUGE problem as we rely on them heavily at work.

it seems that if i send a text message (mms) from my device to another Nextel device, the message is received and i can get a reply. if i send a message to any other device (cingular etc.), im lucky if 1 out of 10 tests actually go through. and receiving from another device is even worse.

biggest problem is that i need to have IM's from aol/aim sent to the device. with aim/aol you can simply address an IM to any text capable device by phone number like this: +12124445432. but ever since i moved my number from cingular i receive an error saying "your message could not be delivered" immediately when trying to send it.

i spoke with tech support at blackberry and tried the whole "3 master resets" trick and it didnt work. the guy then told me that this is a known problem and RIM is "working on it".... huh????

does anyone have this problem or have a fix?

As far as I understand, the easeon AIM won't work is because technically Nextel doesn't support text messages. Text's are SMS, what your sending are MMS, but only with text. The fact that they won't go through when you send them sounds like a provider issue, call Nextel and are if they can work it out.

AIM , Yahoo, etc run natively on the 7100 - they do not depend on SMS messaging. Don't know what your issue may be.

FWIW, Cingular doesn't support MMS on Blackberry Devices (although I think the 7130c can magically get them), so if you're using Cingular as a guinea pig to test what/how it's doing, you're going to be disappointed.
