Re: Is digital text messaging 4 blackberry?


I'd say if you don't have voice service period, you're out of luck.  However, if you just have very little signal (not enough for voice, but it still shows as existing), then you can still send a txt msg.


The way I understand it (and I'm not a cell tech) is that text messaging uses the VOICE connection, just on a different bandwidth, whereas email, MMS, and web all rely on a DATA connection, which is a separate thing.
