I had a Nextel 7100i for a little over 2.5 years. I could hardly text from it. I switched to Sprint and got the 8330 Curve in May '08. Could text all day with ease with it, but, Sprint converage sucked in my area. I am switching back to Nextel and will be receiving the 8350i in a few days. How is the text messaging service on it? Any problems? Thanks!
Yes, I am sad to say that you are correct. However, I've been in contact with Nextel/Sprint support and they tell me that the issue should be corrected within the next 2/3 weeks. In the meantime, I found a tech (luckily) that walked me through some steps to change a few settings and I've been sending/receiving text messages with no problems lately . . . knock on wood . . .
