Call your network provider to have your blackberry 7290 enable. This is free of charge and will get the IM messaging workings, but if you want to setup email etc, you will need to subscribe for email and a data plan which will cost about 19.99.

How do i text from my blackberry 7290


Open your address book and select the person you want to txt. Click the menu button, and select "SMS Text ..Name...".

Alternatively, open your inbox, press the menu button and select "Compose SMS Text", then choose the person you want to send it to.

If you receive a txt from someone else, all you have to do to txt them back is respond to it like you would a regular email.

7290 rim blackberry wont let me text my daughters phone


You text by choosing SMS on the menu options. Do you have email on the device? If so, go into the email icon and see if the SMS option appears on the menu (same menu you look at to compose a new email). If you don't have email, you can see if it's on the menu within the call icon.

Go into your address book/contacts. Hit the menu key and you should see an option for the SIM contacts. Go into it and hit menu. This should show you a copy option. I think you can also do it by going into settings.

Get back if this was helpful or you need more help.

Have a blackberry 7520 and I am using it on boost mobile unlimited but I can't get web access or text message how do I get internet access?


yes there is a way.
download "opera mini" (you can google it for download sites) for internet access. however u cannot download anything OTA (over the air) from websites.

as far as texting... the device does not support texting with boost.
there are several ways around this..

you can try a free messaging program (one such as "RAMBLE IM" to use AOL IM).
i used to use this and just send messages to peoples phone numbers that i had saved on my buddylist. (EX: +15552223333)
-OR-
you can download "GMAIL" which is google email and send emails to peoples cell phone numbers. every cell phone number comes with an email.. for example to send a text to a VERIZON customer u would send the email to 5552223333@vtext.com and they would just reply to it and u would get it. however, they wont see ur phone number it would show up as ur email account u set up with google mail. another however is that gmail doesnt inform u on ur handset when u receive an email u have to manually check it and refresh it but if u go to ur google email account using a computer u can go to settings/options-> forwarding/pop tab-> and forward all emails to ur phone number@messaging.nextel.com (EX: 5552223333@messaging.nextel.com) now everytime u get an email it will send it to ur handset as well and it will vibrate or ring whatever u have it on and let u know u have a message.

you can google all these programs to download them and put them on ur blackberry thru desktop manager. good luck.

Can't Access the Internet


send yourself an email with a web site link. Click the link in the body of the message, and hopefully a web browser application will open up and take you there.

also, from the desktop of the blackberry, press "alt' and 'select' (select on the jog dial). you will see a 'show all' option. The web browsing icon may be "hidden".

Wnt let me make a call out


It sounds like the device was originally activated and worked with a Blackberry enterprise Server, where the administrator had voice calls blocked for the users, so that they did not run up bills - in other words, it was programmed just to do email. If this is the situation, there may not be a solution available to you.

Call your phone carrier and ask them to help - make sure you have the correct "plan"...

Cannot reconcil email


You are paying for email service to the blackberry right?

I had just regular phone service through my 7290 and when I upgraded to the email service the icons showed up to configure mail to my blackberry.
