Thread: SMS Text Messenger not working

One possibility is that your locale's DNS servers are messed up. I've seen that happen before with Sprint.
Oh, if you can, preferably using your i500, send an email (e.g. using Eudora) to email@example.com where "number" is the Tmobile number that you are trying to send to. Does it work ? On the i500 ? With your PC's email ?
Anyone else having either successes or problems sending to Tmo ?
There is another possiblity that I thought of... I understand that Tmo lets customers redefine their phone email address from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com . If the person you are trying to send to did this, then that might explain the problem. But I would think that the Auto! (Teleflip) option should still work...

Its called EIS for Palm 2.1. Choose the Windows download, for example, if your machine that you Hotsync your i500 with is a Windows machine. There are also Mac and Linux versions of the download package.

The area code is 832 it's a Houston, TX area code all three, tm-hack.prc, tm-smtp.prc, and using the Auto! option gives the same error.

I have another theory about the problem you are seeing. It could be that your local router has blocked SMTP traffic, restricting it to only smtp.sprintpcs.com . That would be bad. So what did you tell Eudora to use as your smtp (outgoing) email server ? Was it smtp.sprintpcs.com ?
I had tried to set the SMTP server to smtp.sprintpcs.com in tm-hack.prc, but there is the issue of authentication, which smtp.sprintpcs.com seems picky about. I'll try again...

1) You must have told Eudora to use smtp.sprintpcs.com as its SMTP server, yes ?
2) If you try to send with Eudora using another SMTP server, (must be one that is either open or you have access to) it will fail.
3) You can't send to Verizon either, using tm-hack.prc, tm-smtp.prc or Scott's original TM 2.1.
If these are all true, then try this patched version:
It is considered "experimental", so please, folks, don't use this version unless the other two, tm-hack.prc and tm-smtp.prc don't work for you.

Whoops! the tm-imap.prc from yesterday broke some Cingular targets. If you grabbed tm-imap.prc (above) before reading this post, please download it again. As of this post, the "good" tm-imap.prc is v21c.
Please let me know if tm-imap.prc solves any problems -- it would be important to know that. And given the way it is implemented, I would appreciate a PM from you if you would like to keep on using it, that is, that it works better for you than tm-smtp.prc. I would like to know how many people would be affected if I find a need to change it.

I have not tried your other tm not sure if it would apply to me now that I tried this, or should I?

Sorry for the late reply, I tried it with the new tm and same thing getting authentication issues..
Also since downloading the new tm I couldnt text to other sprint cingular or verizon users. So I went back the the old one I had and now I'm fine, but still cant text to T-mobile...

By "old one", do you mean tm-smtp.prc or Scott's original TM 2.1 ?
Not sure what the problem is. And from what you write, there then must be more than one problem. tm-imap.prc *should* work fine texting to Sprint, Verizon and Cingular.
At this point, more technical details would be needed, like what IP address and DNS servers you are using. You can get those by either: 1) using Eudora Web (only, not Webproc nor Nweb), go to http://www.nolo.net/pcsdata.shtml and hit SUBMIT, or 2) using a laptop and the i500 as a modem, going to the same URL, or at least 3) this procedure on the i500:
- Connect to Vision using Preferences/Network/Connect
- On the same Preferences/Network page, go to dropdown Menu/Options and choose View Log (alternatively, simply Graffiti a Stroke-V).
- Scroll down to the bottom of this Network Log, you'll see something like:
Local IP address: 188.8.131.52
Gateway address: 184.108.40.206
DNS addresses: 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168
Please report those numbers. Thanks.

It would be helpful to have the DNS server IP address(es) that you use, since that is one of the remaining possibilities for the problems you are seeing. You can get that by going to Preferences/Network/Options/View Log, as described above.
It is difficult to figure out what's going on, given your fact pattern. And so it is probably more efficient to debug this in "real-time" over the phone, if you wish. PM me if you would like to...

I checked out those DNS servers and they seem fine as far as recognizing all the servers it would need to for these programs (e.g. tm-hack/smtp/imap.prc) to work, particularly mailx.tmomail.net, the Tmobile SMTP server. So unless they fixed it recently, which is possible, explaining also why you can now txtmsg to Tmobile, then I dunno...
I'm glad it seems to work now for you. Let me know if it stops and we'll check it out again... I'm traveling to Atlanta next week, so I'll see if there are these sorts of problems down there... (a while ago, when I went to San Diego, I did experience both local Sprint DNS server problems and local Sprint blockage of port 25 (SMTP)).
