Question about RIM BlackBerry 7290

Can't Compose or Reply to SMS Messages on my 7290

I got a Blackberry 7290 yesterday and I cannot compose any new SMS messages or reply to ones I receive. I receive them ok though. I called my service provider and we already reset the master and we installed the latest software for it. They've done everything they possibly can and i STILL don't have the option on my menu to compose or reply to messages? We all thought it was highly bizarre and now I'm stuck with this phone that doesn't have my most essential features... :-(

Someone pleeease help...

Can't send messages to some people


Have you tried removing the battery and then trying it? If so contact carrier or check your online account for any blocks/restrictions. If still acting up then backup your data on blackberry desktop manager free on PC. As a last resort try a hard reset (options, security, security wipe, type blackberry, wipe.) Hope this helps!

CAn only send SMS to one person


Hi,

You'll need to reconnect it to blackberry desktop manager and reload the software. Using a USB cable. Reload a lower software version say v4.6.0.301 (platform 4.1.1.245). This should solve the problem you're having.

Kind Regards

7290 rim blackberry wont let me text my daughters phone


You text by choosing SMS on the menu options. Do you have email on the device? If so, go into the email icon and see if the SMS option appears on the menu (same menu you look at to compose a new email). If you don't have email, you can see if it's on the menu within the call icon.

Go into your address book/contacts. Hit the menu key and you should see an option for the SIM contacts. Go into it and hit menu. This should show you a copy option. I think you can also do it by going into settings.

Get back if this was helpful or you need more help.

How can i configure message services to text someone?


First, I assume you have a service provider, a valid cell phone number and that your service provider has enabled text messaging as part of your plan.

To send a text message, go to "Messages", then click "Compose SMS", "[Use Once]", "SMS".

Type the cell phone number of the person you want to send the message to.

Click the trackwheel, then "Continue".

Type a message.

Click the trackwheel.

Click "Send".

If you still are not able to send a text message, you need to verify that "fixed dialing mode" is not enabled. To do that:

Go to Phone Options.

Click "FDN Phone List".

Click the trackwheel.

Click "Disable FDN Mode".

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.
