About SMS text messages

With an SMS phone number, you can send and receive SMS text messages. An SMS phone number is a phone number that your wireless service provider sets up for SMS text messaging. If you have more than one phone number associated with your BlackBerry® device, your device sends SMS text messages using the first phone number that appears in the drop-down list at the top of the Phone screen in the phone application.

You can send SMS text messages to contacts who have SMS phone numbers. You can also forward SMS text messages as PIN or email messages.
