    Can someone tell me where on the 800W I can check to see if it is enabled to automatically POP-UP the text messages when I receive them? it used to but now all it does it NOTIFY me that I have them but doesnt pop them up. It does pop-up email and other notifications..

    Thanks...

    Yes.

    Either you turned notifications off, or something got screwed up.

    With your other issues, sounds like you should hard reset.

    hello

    i cannot send text to short code numbers, like twitter, 40404.

    is that a sprint thing or an 800w thing?

    can it be fixed?

    I've sent them with no problems.

    I do know that not all short code numbers are supported by all carriers. So for some short codes, it's only on specific carriers.

    I remember Alli posting about the short code issue months ago. I don't recall if she got it fixed, if it was a Sprint issue, or something unique to the 800w or her specific account. Try a search for SMS short codes across all time periods in this forum and see if you can find the relevant posts.

    Speaking of Kenosha, I used to visit Dairyland now and then when I was living in Chicago.

    djqwik, I assume your issue is unrelated to this but there is an option to pop up a generic notification vs. the actual text message (it's a "privacy" option in the messaging app). Sounds like you're not getting any popups at all, though...but I figured it was worth mentioning just in case.

    sprint had "short codes" blocked!

    fixed!

    sprint support is getting better......less than 5 minutes including wait time
