    How and where do i get music to download to my samsung gravity 3?

    You will either need a USB cable( to move more than about 5 songs at a time) or you can just email the songs to your phone WITH OUGHT data charges. I usually use email to send ringtones/songs to my internet-less phone, because I don't want to buy a cord. You can buy a cord on amazon Here, though:
    The way you would do this is by sending it to your text message inbox. Actually, when you buy your phone, the provider gives you an email adress to go along with it. So to send a message to your phone:
    1.Open up your email
    2.Where it says "To", type one of these numbers:
    Alltel [10-digit phone number]
    Example: AT&T (formerly Cingular) [10-digit phone number]
    [10-digit phone number] (MMS)
    [10-digit phone number]
    Example: Boost Mobile [10-digit phone number]
    Example: Nextel (now Sprint Nextel) [10-digit telephone number]
    Example: Sprint PCS (now Sprint Nextel) [10-digit phone number]
    [10-digit phone number] (MMS)
    Example: T-Mobile [10-digit phone number]
    Example: US Cellular [10-digit phone number] (SMS)
    [10-digit phone number] (MMS)
    Example: Verizon [10-digit phone number]
    [10-digit phone number] (MMS)

    3.Attach files just as you would a picture.
    4.send, and you should recieve as a text message.
    Hope this helps:-)

    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,

    Want to know how to send picture messages

    Ok, ask the person you are trying to send the picture to if they pay to recieve picture messaging or if it is just text messages. Unless they have a service provider like cricket then the text and picture messages have to be paid for seperatly. Like with sprint/nextel text is .10 cents and pictures are .25 cents. It depends on their provider.

    GSM mode

    First of all, what service do you use? I'd assume you are using Nextel, which is iden. For this reason, setting it to gsm doesn't work. iden was apparently the last setting used, so "last active" also works. Motorola, for some unknown reason, decided not to allow Nextel users to text message.

    There are two ways around this.
    1. One is to send a multimedia message with only text (no pictures, sounds, etc). This should be treated as a text message.
    2. The other way is to follow this guide, which should allow you to change the registry on your phone and get rid of the message. Note that the first posters made the guide for telus users, so be sure to use the nextel sms number (found later in the thread, I believe).

    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).
