BB Curve 8350i :: Receiving Text Msgs / However No Sender Number
Apr 14, 2009
I've searched the forum for something similar, but no luck.I am able to receive text messages, however there is no indication who sent it (no number, etc.).Is there a setting I am missing? I have the current update, but this problem existed before the update.
I just got the 8350i and I can say it is a great phone but it is bad at texting.
Is there a way to reply to a person's text without quoting what they said (almost like an email in outlook)? It seems to automatically put what they said in youre reply and you either have to send it like that or take the time to highlight it and delete it.
That is very annoying, is there any fix for that or the annoying MMS texting of the 8350i in general?
This is annoying when I make or receive a call the right half of the screen shows my phone number...I know what my number is! The problem is it cuts off the left half which makes it difficult to read the caller ID for the incoming or outgoing call.
Im new to this site and this problem has probably already been solved on this site..when someone sends me a text message i dont get it right away when i should. I actually have to turn off the phone and turn it back on again and then the text messages come in..this is very frustrating can anyone help me with this dilemma?what is wrong with my phone?is it the service causing this issue?or is it the software?is there some way to correct this problem?
I have just upgraded from a 6500 slide to the 6210. I like the phone and have just about got it to how I want it, but one thing is absolutely driving me mad. On my 6500, when I received a text message from someone that was in my contacts, it would show on screen; eg: "1 New Message Jack" so I knew who had sent it BEFORE I opened it. I have tried everything but can't get this to happen on the 6210. I have saved all my contacts to just the phone memory, and deleted them off the SIM card. I have tried putting the names in different areas of contacts eg: all in first name, all in last name, or split between both; but still no joy.
I can receive text messages from any sender and get the message just fine and able to read fully. One sender's messages are all blank. I receive the message and my phone acts like I have one, but all the words are gone. And this sender is the person I text and talk the most to. I pulled the battery and that didn't help.
What does it mean if a text message comes from a 5-Digit number?
For example, my Yahoo! Alert for sports comes from "446363" - does that mean that I should save that number in the Yahoo! alerts contact and remove the e-mail address I have for them so that it will play the right tone when a message from Yahoo! comes in?
Every once in a while I would get one SMS message from an unknown number which was spam. Today, for the last 4-5 hrs, I've been receiving numerous spam SMS msgs from 2 area codes in the Atlanta, GA area that are 3 different mobile numbers, and some of which are from the same repeating mobile number. Is there a way to block any spam text messages? I've just been deleting them, but didn't know if you can filter or block SMS msgs like you can with emails. I have a Blackberry Curve 8520 through AT&T
So I've been chatting with 2 other people in a group conversation on messenger. The problem is, everytime i write something and hit 'send', it sends it out to them (my username in blue) and back to me too (my username in red font). It's gotten so annoying that i went from vibrate to silent, and for the life of me i can't figure out why i keep receiving my own messages. I've ended all other conversations with these people on messenger. i asked them about it and they said they aren't receiving their own messages, only i am. this has been going on for 3 days already.
So I got a brand new intrigue on Sept 8th. Paid $200 for it and it was working fine till 2 days ago. All of a sudden it started freezing when I get text messages and wont let me read them. It freezes when I go into habitat mode and recently started freezing when on phone calls. I'm very upset cause I LOVE this phone but it makes me very angry that we paid that much for a phone that didnt even work 2 months. I have tried turning it off and back on with no luck. When it freezes the only thing I can do is take the batt out and turn it back on to work.
I think this may be due to a recent upgrade but undetected until now, but when I used to forward a text message it would say John(sender) said: blabla msg... now it only forwards the message, how come?
I get lots of email on my phone. I have to respond to certain computer generated email alerts regardless of the hour so I have to leave my phone on at night. I would like to have my email alerts set to "silent" for all emails except ones from this certain company. I also would like to sleep at night, but struggle with that because now every email wakes me up. Is there a way to adjust my settings so that the email with a certain title or from this certain company will make a loud sound while the other emails (98%) are silent?
I have the curve 8310 and have had it for awhile. I just got internet today and now my txt messages are deleting themselves. When I recieve a txt it deletes its self within a few minutes wether ive opened it or not.
I've got the BB Curve. Recently, my emails and/or text msgs will disappear (without me deleting or moving), sometimes within minutes of checking. I looked under "Options" and and then "Keep Messages" and chose "Forever". I can't figure out what setting I may (or may not) have changed.
I keep on receiving an empty text message or a text message with different characters (examples are the following: @PF, #, Q"_$ ...) from an unknown number. This happens every time I send a text message to anyone on my contact list. The unknown number keeps on getting longer with every text message I send. What should I do to make it stop?
I can send txts to anyone on 02 but don't receive any replies. Have gone into the txt setting and msg service centre looks ok. Should there be anything else I can do? My network is Orange and phoned their helpdesk plus a shop and they said that there was nothing Orange could do to guarantee a reply from other networks. Chap in shop suggested resetting the factory settings, have done this but still not receiving txt from 02.
i have a technical problem with my new Nokia 5310 XpressMusic. I have saved people's UK numbers in my phone in the format 0797.... When people ring me, the phone displays the name that is calling. But when the same person sends me a text message, it comes up with the number and doesn't indicate the name. This is frustrating. I have tried to save the mobile number as +44797.,but the opposite happens where the phone recognises the text message name, but when they ring me it just hows the number. please help me fix this problem.
Hey guys, im new here. I got a Nextel 8350i and have had numerous problems with it. But today I am actually focusing on the text issues that kinda erks me. My buddy tried to send me some voice texts with an AMR. file attached and I can not get them whatsoever. When I recieve them they are just blank. I can send them if I make one with my voice, but I cannot get them from him. And this isnt the only person who I cant get them from. He is with Verizon. We also tried to Bluetooth them, but when he tries to send them it says "Service unavailable". Any help will be appreciated, im about to "accidentally" run it over and get a new one.
I am having trouble just sending and receiving a simple text message when i go to my sms/mms icon. i find under the menu the option of only composing mms and not sms. how do i send a sms? also when receiving text messages my 8350i breaks them up? this makes it extremely hard to read especially when you have girlfriends who a story from a-z in a text!
Is anyone else having any issues with having their emails pushed to their berry? I am not receiving any emails at all as of this morning. I did a battery pull and then attempted to resend service books from the BIS site and it struggled to even load. Eventually it loaded and I was able to resend the service books. I received the email about "Activation Server" with it saying "you should begin receiving new messages in approximately 20 minutes". It's been well over 20 minutes and still nothing.
I have a BB Curve 8350i with the Nextel network. I can send texts and they are received by others almost instantly, but when someone texts me, I won't receive it unless I turn the power off, and then back on. I've tried resetting it several times, and I've been to two stores for help. They told me is was the network, but I know other people who are receiving their texts just fine.
I have BES and use GMail without the gmail app in addition to my work email. When I send messages from Outlook, a sent copy is shown on my blackberry as well. When I send messages from Gmail, I do not receive a copy of the sent message on my blackberry. Is there anyway to do this?
I have the BlackBlerry 8350i on the Nextel Network, Version: 220.127.116.11
The issue isn't with MY INFO being sent out, I found the options to stop that. What is driving me CRAZY is, only on certain phones, and even if the person is all ready saved in my contacts, I STILL KEEP RECEIVING AUTO SEND MY INFO MESSAGES, EVEN FROM STORED CONTACTS, AND IT IS VERY ANNOYING!
