Nextel i850 Can't send/receive text messages - says

I have a Nextel Motorola i850.

For the past week, I can't send/receive text messages - says "Out of Service Unable to Send Message"
when Im in a  certain part of town it seems.

Support at nextel is no help.
Anyone else have this problem, or know how to fix?

    Take the i850 to a Nextel repair center, you need a new circuit board. Make sure you have the repair insurance first or it will cost you $50 or so.

Don't go to customer service, go to a repair center. call ahead if you use the net to find one, not all listed can do repairs.

I had an old nextel phone it was a i730 and i had to go on the internet on the phone every time i got a text message and i just got a i290 and i still have to go on the internet to send and receive text....

The Text messaging on the I290 is based on Java technology the requires you to go use the web portal..

Newer phones like the i776, i465,i410,i9,i856 no longer require that...

I need to delet my messages fron my phone and i cant it is a nextel i850

Text messages? The voice mails are on a server, not the device. If you cannot delete the text messages try resetting defaults by doing the following:
Press Menu key and scroll to settings (toolbox icon) hit OK button
Scroll down to advanced; hit OK button
Scroll down to "Reset Defaults" and hit ok
Select "Reset Settings" and hit ok
After selecting Reset Defaults enter security code 000000 and select ok then select yes

You will not lose any data or info stored on the phone. This will simply reset your settings to factory defaults so you will have to reset your wallpaper, ringtones etc...

Trying to send a text message from the nextel I710 motorola phone but text message is not an option under messanger center list how do i send text?

To send a text message for the i710, you may need to go to WEB, and go to send text message, there should be an option for this. Recommended that you get a texting package, due to it may run $0.15-0.20 per text. Let me know how it goes,

I530 text messaging issue

To be able to send and reply to text messages you must have NOL net access. Press menu(left of the left arrow key), scroll to net, press ok(if an error message appears contact nextel for internet service), scroll to text messaging, press ok. From there you can write, read and reply to text messages. The reason for having to do it this way is because this phone as well as others with nextel were being produce when text was first being introduced to nextel, at that time motorola wasn't making nextel phones with the option of text, so it was up to the provider to give text access(via. net).
