    So, Sprint SMS isn't available yet, as I understand it from other threads here. Is anyone using a "workaround"? As I understand it, the main issue is that SMS will allow Treo to send text messages, so what, if anything, are people doing in the meantime?

    Treo600SMS by PDAapps. It's the best alternative and it works great!

    Free is not always better than not free. Not free is conveinant, not free allows you to not have to log on to blazer, wait for the page to load and then send. $20 is nothing compared to the price you paid for the Treo. You might as well make life easier for yourself.

    Buuuut, this is only a TEMPORARY solution, we hope, so to throw out $20.00,which IS money, and espetially after paying so much for the Treo 600...

    You can look at it either way

    Another program that does the job of sending SMS, at no charge, is a free one developed by a guy with an i500 - I've tried it on the i500, Treo 300, and the Treo 600, and it works well on all of them.

    Here's the link. It's just called "Text Messenger," second app down on the page.

    Hope someone benefits from this.

    Yup, that's a great app as well.. However, the only caveat is that it can only sends text messages to other Sprint phones...

    That's true...so TreoSMS is the best alternative (as an actual program) to use?

    while you check out Treo600SMS check out Verichat.
    Although not SMS tool it works well and connects you with anyone who has IM.

    Put your $20 towards something you will keep and then wait for Sprint SMS to show up some day.

    just a thought
    Palm Pre and a nice collection of Treos: 755p, 700, 650, 600, 300 and Palm Pilots, Visors, and Sony Clie

    I live in Indianapolis and my SMS receive AND send has been working flawlessly since Sunday nite (1/25).

    Can't be too far around the corner for everybody else.

    I've been reading that some people are having trouble with continuous crashes associated with the SMS program. When hitting the "go to" button, Palm will crash and restart itself. Its happened to me, one, maybe 2 times.

    Sounds like a software problem that Handspring will like address and patch within the coming weeks.

    I can send messages back and forth between my wife and I using the E-mail gateway. Since the resets come with the receiving of sms I'v got my wife using PCS mail instead of shortmail.(her shortmail still works-Sanyo 4900) It takes the same amount of time as the shortmail and I don't get resets when sent from PCS mail.


    Hopes this helps.
    This is my Treo. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My Treo is my best freind. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My Treo without me is useless. Without my Treo, I am useless......

    Try the update, it fixes the SMS crash thingy
  18. #18  
    The update worked like a charm! No more resets! I still can't send so I still use the e-mail gateway.

    What I don't know is wether or not I have to use a different e-mail address for people with carriers other than Sprint.

    Anybody know anything about that?
