Get a shareware program called Filez for the Palm platform. Install it onto your Treo. Go into the program and click on "View and Edit Files". Click on the "Internal" arrow to open the listing on your Treo. Scroll down to the "S's" by hitting the "S" button on your keyboard. Scroll manually until you get to"SMS Msg Databa..." Click on it and then click the button that says "Details". In the window that comes up, hit the "Delete" button. It will ask you if you are sure, which you are. But you are not done yet! You will now have to delete the old (full) record from your desktop backup database or you will get every one of those contacts back when you hotsync again. Here's what to do about that: Do a search for SMS Msg Database.pdb or SmsDB.pdb - or similar, these are the names they are called on my Mac. Delete those files - and you should have a nice empty database to fill up with your own friends and contacts.

How to insert a contact's phone number in a text message - not as vcf

Hi there,

This depends on the capability of your phone. For most phones, once you have composed the message, just click menu or options, you will see list of choices. If there is a choice that says "insert number". Once you choose this option, you will automatically go to your phonebook, just search for the number and insert it.


Hope this helps.

Thank you!

How do I send pictures through SMS text on my blackberry Curve through sprint?

You can't. To send pictures or other media, you must use the MMS (Multimedia Message Service) option. Just use the option menu button in the messaging application and choose Compose MMS. After selecting the recipient, click the menu button again to add things like pictures, videos, etc. to the message. Note that sprint includes the ability to send media in your data plan, but your recipient may get charged for the message. Some carriers, even Sprint, don't include MMS in there unlimited messaging plans but rather expect you to send the picture as SMS which the Blackberry Curve can't do.
