About SMS text messages

To send and receive SMS text messages, your wireless service provider must set up your wireless service plan for SMS text messaging. Depending on your wireless service provider, this feature might not be supported.

You can forward SMS text messages as PIN messages or email messages. If your BlackBerry® device is connected to a CDMA network, you can also send an SMS text message to an email address.

If you have more than one phone number associated with your device, your device sends SMS text messages using the first phone number that appears in the drop-down list beside the My Number field at the top of the screen in the phone application.

Depending on the typing input language that you are using to type your SMS text messages, your messages might display to your recipients differently than you expect.
