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".

First, you need to contact your cellular service provider and Make Sure you have MMS service activated on your account. You must have MMS activated to use picture messaging.

If customer service verifys that MMS has been activated on your account, request Tech Support Assistance. Tech Support can make sure your phone is configured correctly and assist you in sending and receiving a (test) picture message. And, Tech support assistance from your cellular company is free.

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.

How do I send pictures through SMS text on my blackberry Curve through sprint?


You can't. To send pictures or other media, you must use the MMS (Multimedia Message Service) option. Just use the option menu button in the messaging application and choose Compose MMS. After selecting the recipient, click the menu button again to add things like pictures, videos, etc. to the message. Note that sprint includes the ability to send media in your data plan, but your recipient may get charged for the message. Some carriers, even Sprint, don't include MMS in there unlimited messaging plans but rather expect you to send the picture as SMS which the Blackberry Curve can't do.

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.

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.
