I have a BlackBerry Pearl 8100, and every time I try to send a sms text message I get a Protocol Error

Hi, go to your wireless provider web site and got their proper number "SMS Message Center Numbers".
On the phone, go to Options/SMS Text, move down to the Service Center line and put in the proper number remembering to put the + plus sign in front of it. So if you get a Protocol Error and a Red X when trying to send SMS text, check this to fix it..

How do i set up text on blackberry 8700


For you to set up text on your blackberry, go to the message icon and okay it.Once on the message icon you can click on the home button and a menu appears, scroll to compose SMS. You are then taken to the sms page where you can now enter the cell no. in the TO: field and the text space lays under it where you can type in your text message.

Hope this helped.

Can not send or recieve text messages but i can get on the net

I will assume that you have Boost Mobile, and not Nextel. If I am wrong, you need to put your phone on the blackberry software and upload/refresh your phone. IF YOU ARE ON BOOST, you cannot text on the 7520, the phone is not compatable completley with the iDen network.

Have a blackberry 7520 and I am using it on boost mobile unlimited but I can't get web access or text message how do I get internet access?

yes there is a way.
download "opera mini" (you can google it for download sites) for internet access. however u cannot download anything OTA (over the air) from websites.

as far as texting... the device does not support texting with boost.
there are several ways around this..

you can try a free messaging program (one such as "RAMBLE IM" to use AOL IM).
i used to use this and just send messages to peoples phone numbers that i had saved on my buddylist. (EX: +15552223333)
you can download "GMAIL" which is google email and send emails to peoples cell phone numbers. every cell phone number comes with an email.. for example to send a text to a VERIZON customer u would send the email to and they would just reply to it and u would get it. however, they wont see ur phone number it would show up as ur email account u set up with google mail. another however is that gmail doesnt inform u on ur handset when u receive an email u have to manually check it and refresh it but if u go to ur google email account using a computer u can go to settings/options-> forwarding/pop tab-> and forward all emails to ur phone (EX: now everytime u get an email it will send it to ur handset as well and it will vibrate or ring whatever u have it on and let u know u have a message.

you can google all these programs to download them and put them on ur blackberry thru desktop manager. good luck.

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.
