    This is just an FYI.
    With the new roll out of the MO-SMS and Sprint trying to go live, it's caused soft resets and such (even people not using Treo600SMS, the issue is the SMS itself) as well as Treo600SMS and Veri-Chat (I think) to not work correctl, or at all

    Where you use to use a 10 digit number to send a text, replace it with the 10 Digit number followed with the @carrier

    For example
    To text a Sprint user it use to be
    now use

    Here are the rest, that should work too
    Sprint -
    T-Mobile -
    Verizon -
    Cingular -
    Nextel -
    AT&T -

    Hope this is helpfull and please correct any info that I have down as wrong. Regards, Matt Burkhard

    As of this morning, I can send again like I use too, with just the 10digitnumber.
    FYI, I have NOT updated my ROM to version 1.10 yet either.

    thanks for the info, this is working for me.

    i'm in pittsburgh, pa and updated on 1/28, have not been able to use 10 digit number since then. sadly, everything looks fine on the treo side, like the message is sent, but the recipient never gets it.

    this kinda sucks though, have to know what carrier everyone is on, and you can't tell just from the prefix now that you can switch and keep your number.

    Treo600SMS by PDA apps was "down" again yesterday. It's up again. When I say down, i mean that you can't use the 10digit number to send (well, it will still send, it's just that no one will get it). You have to use the 10digit@carrier.

    Anyway, it was down again, due to SPrints constant changing of their system while the transistion to MO-SMS. Everytime that Sprint jacks with their system, PDAapps has to compensate. I got another email from them sayitn that all should be good by end of the weekend, if it's not already good.

    I can once again send with only the 10digit nymber as of 1/31/04 in AUstin,Texas

    For what it's worth....

    Thanks for the info!

    I emailed pdaapps last night and they said the same thing where their treo600sms program is kinda down and they hope to have it working with sprint by the end of the weekend.

    Question: if I add the @carrier doesn't that send an email text message? The some carriers will then charge the recipient a fee for receiving email type messages. I don't know much about these systems and what type of text messaging system Sprint is trying to roll out. All I know is that the system working over in London, England works wonderfully and I assume the rest of Europe as well. Why can't Sprint copy their systems???

    does anyone understand the architecture behind Sprint's SMS and PDA's Treo600SMS? e.g. i'm assuming "pure" SMS is a phone switch-to-phone switch kind of thing. while Treo600SMS is a treo-via-TCP-to-PDA-server-to-phone switch kind of thing. is this right and does it make sense?
