    I routinely send text messages back and forth between Nextel to T-Mobile.
    This works great. However, starting yesterday, some of the messages
    originated on the T-Mobile phone and coming into the Nextel phone as SMS.
    This has never occurred until yesterday and seems to be intermittent. The
    T-mobile users is not doing anything different. Both phones are signed up
    for text messaging.

    Any thoughts?

    nextel phone do in fact have sms capabilities! altho they are not enabled. perhaps in your area they are testing the sms as it was supposed to be released with the i730...mmdstech would probably know more about when it's supposed to launch!

    nextel even has prebuilt instant replies for sms on your phone!

    Re: Text Msg

    i get those trivia question messages from nextel. the past two weeks they
    came as regular net mail but yesterday they were coming as both net mail and
    message mail. i think there was just something screwy with the text system.
    itll probly get resolved. but dont worry, its not just you.

    Not entirely sure what you are asking... However text messaging is SMS
    and if you have the unlimited messaging you are covered. If it comes in
    as MMS then that is seperate in most cases. If you go thru T-Zones and
    compose an e-mail that I beleieve goes under the MMS bucket. Just
    sending hey or some scuh from you to Nextek (or whomever/wherever even
    under 500 gateway is SMS) Hope that helps...

    Re: Text Msg

    To answer your question, Nextel was having network problems yesterday
    through out the nation so the Text Messages came as either Text msgs or
    Net alerts or even both to some users.

    If you have the 7.50 unlimited text you are "supposed to" ALSO get the
    unlimited SMS (Text and numeric messaging feature - one way msg's) but
    call CS to make sure they have it set that way...because they had it set
    wrong in my account
