When your on the messgage screen where it says no messages on the bottom right or left there should be an option to start a new one. another thing that should work is in your contacts if you click on there name and then click the options button it should give the option to sent txt. some phones are complicated if you find the manual for the phone it should be in there or go to nextels website

What is lorem ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

My phone is not able to receive texts, Ive tried resetting it, re syncing it and many other things yet nothing seems to work, i know i've been sent texts because my friends have told me. My phone is a HTC...

I would suggest contacting the your cell service provider and informing them of the problem, they are able to reconfigure your device from their end and that may work. Aslo be sure to ask for a prorated bill so that you get money knocked off your bill for the inability to recieve text. Another suggestion if that does not work depending on the exact model number of your phone would be to perform a hard reset, which is described below. If this does not work repost your phones model number and we will do our best to figure out a solution.

1. Power off unit
2. Remove MMC/SD Card or Dummy card.
3. Press Record Button while pressing Power button to switch on.
4. On the white screen, press the action button of the Joystick.
5. Choose Erase IPSM.

Why remove the card? Because with a dummy card in it, the phone gets fooled into believeing that there is an SD card in it and tries to read it...

And, if there is an SD card in the unit, more options appear other than just erase IPSM...

this I think is a safer process.

I have an overseas SIM card a friend sent so she

Um... if your Phone doesn't use a SIM, then you cannot "put on in" as there is no SIM Slot. IF you do have a SIM Slot,usually close by, there is a little drawing showing the way it slides in, usually the angled corner goes out, and faces right, and the straight edge goes inwards, and it goes in FACE DOWN

I got text but no number or name displayed

Call your phone company. Seems like your phone is having some system faults. Try taking the battery out of your phone with the power on and restarting it that way. You can't text someone private so thats not even possible. Odd, i've never seen this in my 5 years of work.....weird

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).
