Ok you need to call web support at nextel, they need to fix your texting. most likely you put your sim card into another nextel model. they need to clear it up in the back end they might need to verify your serial number and update it.

When u first sign up for service all your incoming txt messages will go into the sms folder and will have no addresses with them. this should last for two days until your number is fully active in the system. after that it will go into your inbox and everything should be ok.

I can't receive picture messages on my htc hero. Everytime I receive a picture text it would always have a link saying download. When I click the download button an error report always pops up saying the...

Most carriers don't allow direct picture texts. email or click the link. Having said that you'll need to call them and ask how to set up you username and password to get them. they do this so they get data usage out of you which they charge for. Instead of getting to send pictures basically for free with an unlimited texting plan. They do however let non smartphones do it.Dumb.

Call Sprint Nextel and tell them that you got the new phone. Different phones use different data emulations, and you're probably on the wrong one. Once you have the serial number/MSN (number starts with "364") added to your account, the phone may take up to 8 hours to reset and accept messages.
