    I just replaced my i1000plus Redesign with an all-black i530. The i530 is
    great, by the way, assuming you're not one of those people that wants a
    practical video game system for a cellphone. I love the plain black and white
    interface and simplicity.

    When people would send me text messages on my i1000plus, it would never show
    who it was coming from. I incorrectly assumed this would be different on the
    much newer i530, but it's not.

    Is there any way to tell who the text message is coming from without having
    Nextel's Internet service enabled?

    NOPE this is how Nextel gets you to subscribe to their web service. I hate
    this also. Not to mention that you get charged for the incoming text
    message $.10 even if someone sent you a message by mistake. I did have the
    $10 premium web feature but dropped it when my average phone bill was $210
    per month for 3 Nextel phones. I've since dropped one of the phones off the
    account and scaled back on all the extras and got my invoice down to $125
    per month.

    even if you pay extra for the 2 way messaging you will not be able to see who is sending the messages. Any one can send a messages through nextels website with out a return address or name. And they can send the page via alpha dispatch terminal (xxx-xxx-note) or paging interface (xxx-xxx-page) or via voicemail pressing #1. all done with out you knowing who it is. A forum/website ( I wont mention their name) did a lot of bulk text paging about a year ago advertising ringtones and it went over like a fart in church. Nextel has now install spam filters. I don't know why they probably generated lots of money for Nextel @ $.10 a pop.
