Unlocked Treo 650 wont send text messages


I have the same problem using an unlocked Treo 650 on O2(UK).
One thing you need to do is make sure that the Message Centre Number is set correctly for the SIM network you are using. Get the MCN from the internet, then on the Treo Messaging > Menu > Options > Preferences > Network > Manual > Edit to check/set the MCN.

When you port a number over from another company then you begin to have issues receiving texts from that previous company. They can re-port your number for free if you explain it to them and they talk to the department that does the number porting, but if you use FlexPay then they can't "re-port the number". They usually are willing to change your number though.
Have the service books resent to the Verizon user. If they are sending pictures, make sure you can receive those from your provider.
Try this also:
phonenumber@mms.mycricket.com

Put your number in where it says phonenumber on the link.
You need to have mms multimedia messaging. By default cricket users that just have text messaging do not get a email addy. The txt msgs are routed by crickets network.

Not receiving some of my text messages


I also have a Treo 650 that works flawlessly. I'm on AT&T and sometimes a message gets delayed but I don't think I've ever missed a message. I would believe it is the verizon network. It could also be effected by sunspots and the part of the world you are in.

good luck

A warranty is only as good as the company behind the warranty. If your seller is a reputable one, the warranty can come in handy in the next year. SquareTrade, for instance, is a good eBay warranty vendor.
