Re: How can I clear the recipients in lookup in...

Get a shareware program called Filez for the Palm platform. Install it onto your Treo. Go into the program and click on "View and Edit Files". Click on the "Internal" arrow to open the listing on your Treo. Scroll down to the "S's" by hitting the "S" button on your keyboard. Scroll manually until you get to"SMS Msg Databa..." Click on it and then click the button that says "Details". In the window that comes up, hit the "Delete" button. It will ask you if you are sure, which you are. But you are not done yet! You will now have to delete the old (full) record from your desktop backup database or you will get every one of those contacts back when you hotsync again. Here's what to do about that: Do a search for SMS Msg Database.pdb or SmsDB.pdb - or similar, these are the names they are called on my Mac. Delete those files - and you should have a nice empty database to fill up with your own friends and contacts.

LG KS20 SMS problem!! I have a problem with sending SMS with the LG KS20 always writes. "cannot recognize one or more recipients or the adress is not valid.Would you like to send the message anyway?" LG...

If you have transferred your contacts from an earlier phone to your KS20 the information sometimes not corresponds. Have you checked if the mobile no. are typed correct, without any (-) hyphenation or other marks between the no?

When you are choosing the contact. Are you writing the name of the contact or do you click and then choose the contact from the contact list. There seem to be trouble finding the contact when writing the name. However clicking and then choose the contact from the contact list seems to work every time.

Hope it can be of any help to you.

How can i configure message services to text someone?

First, I assume you have a service provider, a valid cell phone number and that your service provider has enabled text messaging as part of your plan.

To send a text message, go to "Messages", then click "Compose SMS", "[Use Once]", "SMS".

Type the cell phone number of the person you want to send the message to.

Click the trackwheel, then "Continue".

Type a message.

Click the trackwheel.

Click "Send".

If you still are not able to send a text message, you need to verify that "fixed dialing mode" is not enabled. To do that:

Go to Phone Options.

Click "FDN Phone List".

Click the trackwheel.

Click "Disable FDN Mode".

Picture Messaging

If your sympton is:

You see a red X with unknown error on your BlackBerry smartphone when sending picture attachments in an email message.
The service books for the email integration are corrupt
To resolve this issue, delete and resend the service books from the BlackBerry® Internet Service or BlackBerry® Enterprise Server.


Picture messaging allows the user to send and receive photos to and from their contacts.
Important: The Instant Messenger recipient must be online to send the picture.
To send pictures from your BlackBerry smartphone camera using <Instant Messenger>, complete the following steps:
  1. On the BlackBerry smartphone, preview a picture.
  2. Display the menu and select the Instant Messenger you want to use to send the picture.
  3. Complete the onscreen instructions.
To send a picture from within an Instant Messenger for BlackBerry smartphones application session, complete the following steps:
  1. Within the Instant Messenger session, display the menu and select Send Media. The Which Type dialog appears.
  2. Click Picture. The Pictures folder opens.
  3. Select the picture you want to send. A request is sent to the recipient indicating you sent a file and an option to Accept or Decline the file.
    • If the recipient clicks Accept, the Save File dialog opens. The recipient saves the file on the BlackBerry smartphone.
    • If the recipient clicks Decline, The sender receives a message indication the file transfer was declined.

The BlackBerry smartphone user is unable to send a picture as an email message from the Media application of the BlackBerry smartphone. The Send option is not present on the menu when the email message is sent using an email account that is associated with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Although the current BlackBerry Internet Service supports large attachments or attachments that are in their native format, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version 4.0 does not.
A BlackBerry smartphone that is provisioned with the current BlackBerry Internet Service uses it as the default method for sending pictures from the camera. As a result, when attempting to send a picture attachment from an email account that is associated with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the Send option will be missing from the menu as the image is in native format and size.

Upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to software version 4.1 Service Pack 2 or later, since support for large attachments or attachments that are in their native format has been introduced in that version.

Follow the steps below to send the picture attachment from the Messages application on the BlackBerry smartphone:
  1. Select Messages on the Home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone.
  2. Press the Menu key.
  3. Select the Compose Email option from the menu.
  4. In the To field, enter the contact address where the email message is to be sent.
  5. Press the Menu key again.
  6. Select the Attach File option from the menu.
  7. Browse to and select the picture to be attached to the email message.
  8. Send the email message.

Text Messaging

If the "Compose SMS" option is not there with the "Compose Email" and/or "Compose Pin" and/or "Compose SMS", you carrier opted not to have the feature installed on their 7510 models.
