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".

About fixed dialing
If you enable fixed dialing number (FDN) mode, your device only makes calls to contacts on your FDN list. Your device can dial emergency numbers in FDN mode, even if the numbers are not in the FDN list. If your service provider plan includes SMS, you can also send SMS messages to contacts on your FDN list

so if you have this enabled chances are you have to turn it off.
this is how you turn it on so you should be able to use it as a guide to turn it off.



Turn on fixed dialing
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click Enable FDN mode.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.

or if you wanna keep it on and add friends to the fdn



Add contacts to the FDN list
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click New.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.
6. Type a name and a phone number.
7. Click the trackwheel.
8. Click Save.

and finally some shortcut keys:
To open the phone, press the Send key.
To end a call, press the End key.
To call a selected contact or phone number, press the Send key. To call a speed dial number, hold the assigned key.
To add an extension to a phone number, press the X key. Type the extension number.
To call your voice mail access number, hold 1.
To type a letter in a number field, hold the Alt key.
To type the first letter on a key, press the letter key once.
To type the second letter on a key, press the letter key twice.
To turn on or turn off mute using the Mute button, press the Mute button.
To turn on or turn off mute using the keypad, press the exclamation point (!) key.

I need help with volume


You may have selected a profile that does not alert you audibly when you receive messages. You may select a different profile, edit the current profile or create a completely new profile. I'm attaching instructions for creating a profile and editing would be similar except you would select a profile then select "edit" for the menu. Be use you have "tone" or "vibrate and tone" selected and that the volume is not on mute. Always save your changes.

Create notification profiles
1.In the profiles list, click the trackwheel.
2.Click New Profile.
3.Type a name for the profile.
4.Click an item.
5.Click Edit.
6.Set how you want to receive notification for that item.
7.Click the trackwheel.
8.Click Save.
9.Click the trackwheel.
10.Click Save.

To turn on tones when pressing the keys, follow the following instructions:


Turn on tones when pressing keys
In the device options, click Screen/Keyboard. Set the Key Tone field to On. Click the trackwheel. Click Save.

Handheld is hanged


Sounds like you need to do a hard reset, Take the battery out fo the phone while the device is on.

This will rebuild your apps, and should fix the corruption.

Other wise you might have to reload your apps or your os on the device.
