Question about Motorola Mobility i930 Cellular Phone

Motorola i930-no texting-originally Nextel-now boost

Using an i930 on the Boost network. Boost is aware. I can't send or receive text msgs or MMS's. Boost customer service says the i930 may be too smart for their 64K SIM card. What's up with that? Is there a way to decertify the phone or something? I get the same error msg that others have listed - "texting available in GSM mode only." When I switch to GSM mode, I have no service. There HAS GOT to be a way to fix this. It's a totally sweet phone (windows mobile based) but how lame is it if I can't send/receive texts? I've seen a ton of software out there for downloading, but $29.99? Come on! Any help/advice would be so appreciated. Thanks!

I read about a program that work via internet and receives the messages for your phone and sends it to your phone. but i was in a spanish forum.i will look in to it to see if i can find it.
i have decerted my i920 and i don't get that annoying screen. but still doesn't work. the only way to send a text is via mms but still can't receive. i did a research and read that boost uses mms not sms and boost phone converts any sms to mms so you can read them and when you use a phone from nextel their phone don't have that feature.

    i also hear about another option but i haven't tryed. i heard that if you get a nextel simcard and you call boostmobile and say that you want to update you info to a new sim card and you give out the sim card number you can use you boost number under that simcard and be able to send and receive messages.

    if anyone try please post a comment to see how it went.

    thanks

Panu ako makakapag internet sa fone??? nagtry aq kea lang may kailangan pa atang configuration... manual daw??


Ano po bang model ang gamit ninyo? maaari po kayo mag internet sa phone sa papapagitan ng wi-fi o GPRS. Kung may wi-fi po ang phone ninyo,i-on lang po ito at pwede na kayo dumiretso sa browser. kung wala namang wi-fi ang phone ninyo eh kailangang ma-activate ang GPRS ninyo upang makapag internet po kayo.

sa pag activate ng GPRS, kung GLOBE po ang gamit ninyo eh automatic na pong matatanggap ang configuration settings ng nasabing GPRS,i-save lang po ito at ang may code pong hinihingi,ipasok lang po ang 1234 at pagkatapos i-save eh pwede napo kayong mag internet,basta may load po ang sim ninyo ok na po ito.



In SMART :

Here's a quick tip on how to activate your phone's Smart MMS and Smart GPRS settings if you're with the Smart network:

Download MMS and GPRS settings from Smart:

To download SMART MMS phone settings:

Key in SET MMS and send to 211.

To download SMART GPRS phone settings:

Key in SET GPRS and send to 211.

Example: If you have a Nokia 6230, that's "SET MMS N6230"

To activate SMART GPRS:

Key in "GPRS ON" and send to "333?

To activate SMART MMS:

Key in "MMS ON" and send to "333?

Note :
The configuration settings will be sent to your phone. You will need to select "Save All" to save the settings in the phone. Some MMS and GPRS handsets already have pre-loaded phone settings.

Activation of MMS and GPRS will require a confirmation message from SMART. A message will be sent to the sub once the feature has been activated.



In SUN CELLULAR

Activate your GPRS
Two ways to activate your GPRS:
1. Text ACTIVATE to 2300
2. Call 200 using your Sun phone or 395-8000 via landline, and a customer service representative
will assist you

Configure your Handset
Two ways to configure your phone:
1. Text SUN GPRS to 1200.

Dcan anybody please tell how to make mms settings in samsung monte 5620 model


Hi, problems with mms message, mms settings are usually from your network provider
not your Cell Phone . In most cases, regarding the text messages,
the problem is from the Service Operator. Have you tried the Sim card on another phone? If not,
remove the Sim card, insert it on another phone and try sending a message from another mobile to you number,

If you can't receive or send mms messages even when it's inserted on another handset,
then you will need to call the customer care of your Network Operator and tell
them your problem, they will help you fix it immediately.

You can check the message center number, but I don't think
it's very much important in your case, well, if you wanna try,
just check the text message settings and verify that the message
center number (which is currently in use)or you can confirm by contacting your service provider service and they will assist you by sending you the settings for you mms message
and save the settings. Also disable the "Receive Via" or similar settings..
(I can't recollect the exact settings as i don't have the same model with
me, please excuse me for this.).

If the same Sim card doesn't receive text messages using another handset,
don't bother to change the settings or to make any changes with it,
first call the customer care and verify from them, you may make mistakes instead of fixing it.


Hope that helps.

the problem is from the Service Operator. Have you tried the Sim card on another phone? If not,
remove the Sim card, insert it on another phone and try sending a message from another mobile to you number.

it's very much important in your case, well, if you wanna try,
just check the text message settings and verify that the message
center number (which is currently in use) is the same number which
is on another phone with the same network (the other Sim should be
of the same network in your area). If it's different, make the changes
and save the settings. Also disable the "Receive Via" or similar settings..
(I can't recollect the exact settings as i don't have the same model with

Can't receive picture messages or send them on my Samsung Tocco Lite


Hi,
I guess you are talking about Multimedia message (MMS) which can be used to send and receive pictures. MMS is a network operator secific features and so please call up your mobile service customer care and request them to activate MMS service to your mobile subscription. Then you need to receive and settings for MMS in your mobile phone. After that you can send and receive MMS. Contact your network operator for the cost of MMS.

I hope this is useful to you.
Thanks

Why cant I recieve text from a number that I have previously sent hundreds of messages to in the past. I have cricket & the recipiant has verizon both companies say it's the other ?? I can send the...


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.
