My phone wont receive messages, it sends them fine however it just all of a sudden stopped be able to receive them, do you know how to fix it?


Hello

  1. Delete any messages currently in your inbox, or outbox. (When your phone reaches its maximum message size, it will prevent future messages from being sent or received.)

  1. Contact your service provider to make sure this service is available. (Text messaging is a service provider controlled feature. You may have to add this feature to your plan, make a payment, or there may be a problem on the service provider's end.

What is the code of motorola boost i776


Unlock Boost Phone for Nextel Service

Boost cell phones will work with on the Nextel network. However, only very basic functions such as making & receiving calls and receiving text messages will be available. These limited abilities do not meet the needs of many cell phone subscribers.

To unlock available features, you need to have computer cables to attach your phone to computer. Also required are your codeplug (file type RAR - use this link to get Microsoft help - http://multiplexelectronics.home.att.net/moddinginfo.html ) and an RSS program.

To unlock your phone is fairly complicated and you would need to be an advanced computer user. The program you will need to write will depend on your particular phone model and the features or services you require. For those less technical, there are message boards on the internet (ie: cell phone hacks and MP3Car) where experts volunteer to write the programs to unlock phones. Some people choose pay services where they can pay a one time charge for the services they want unlocked.

What is surprising is that Nextel doesn't do a good job of helping subscribers unlock their Boost phones, since this would allow Nextel to sell additional value added services. Unlocking Boost phones allows the phone to download ring tones, applications such as games, walkie-talkie (Moto Talk) and sending text messages and pictures. Not only are these money making ventures for Nextel, the walkie-talkie feature distinguishes Nextel from the other major wireless companies.

Other features that are disabled can change the look and feel of the phone. These include keypad and screen color, keypad lights, inverted LCD and American dialing (555-555-5555). Also, people unlock services which are typically included with most plans including 3-way calling, voice activation dialing, and speaker phones.

Some people unlock their phone to turn off billing charges such as picture and text messaging, to obtain premium service such as widen, which allows you to surf the internet at faster speeds , or access GPS.

One of the strange twists is even if you unlock your phone for some features; Nextel may not provide the service in all markets. This often happens with trying to use your phone as a computer modem, even if widen is turned on.

Whatever you decide, just be careful. Downloading the wrong program could completely disable your phone or you could get caught by Nextel for stealing services.

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...

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).
