Talking new 7100t owner with small problem

Please Login to Remove!

I just purchased an unlocked 7100t (t-mobile) I am using it on Cingulars network. I have been able to get everything to work exept for sending text messages. I can receive them but not send them.

It says: failed to send message packet error

Any help would be appreciated. Please make any answers simple because I am not very good with this stuff. Thanks

If the screen says GSM, you can only do voice and text messaging. Right?

Yes, GSM will only allow Voice and Text. GPRS will allow voice, text, and data. From the way that it was explained to me.

GPRS is just the data extension of GSM; it will not do Voice. It will allow for a data sending of SMS, although a lot of providers have this disabled since it circumvents the entire text message revenue stream.
