Thread: SMS Text Messenger not working
10-10-2006 09:56 AM #61
I just checked the DNS servers that you posted and they still seem fine, so if you are having problems sending to Tmobile now, its unlikely that the DNS servers are the problem. Can you still send to Sprint ? How about Verizon or Cingular ?
Did you give tm-imap.prc a good thorough try, because that would test the blocked port 25 hypothesis ?

Are you *sure* you are using tm-imap.prc ? If you tap on the little (i) Info icon on the upper right corner, does it report Text Messenger v21c ?
I just sent 5 different txtmsgs to the number you PM'd me, two via tm-imap.prc and three via tm-smtp.prc. Please let me know if they all worked.

BTW, to install any of these programs, like tm-imap.prc, you do not need to d/l it to a PC and use Palm Install. You can just use the i500 browser, like WebPro or nweb, go to the URL: http://dnn.tsolab.org/webpix, and click on the file you want (e.g. tm-imap.prc). It will be downloaded directly into your i500 in seconds.

I tried both downloaded both using nweb and both gave me the same error.
"Provider replied with an error" I even tried two different tmobile numbersSamsung A500<---Old faithful<--> to SPH-I500 but really want the Treo 700P and now I have IT!!

Can someone post a step by step summary of what needs to be done to replace poor old I500SMS (i.e. how does one disable it) with whatever now seems to be our best text messaging option? I don't want to screw up anything! Thanks!!

1) click on the Enable I500SMS icon in the Launcher
2) it will say something like "I500SMS is already installed, would you like to go to the Messages app ?"
3) say No, it then brings you to a page which has options to re-authenticate I500SMS and... to Uninstall I500SMS.
4) Choose the Uninstall option. You may then need to soft reset PalmOS.
However, you do not need to uninstall I500SMS to try or use Scott's TM program. They do not interact or interfere with each other. Scott's TM program is still available at i500.nopdesign.com, or you can try my patched versions of that program, of which there are two:
1) tm-smtp.prc does direct SMTP submissions of textmsgs to Cingular, Verizon, Tmobile, and the original HTTP submission to Sprint. Also has the Auto! function to teleflip.com so you can textmsg to all carriers without knowing which carrier to use.
2) tm-imap.prc submits SMTP indirectly through an intermediate server without using port 25 (since Sprint may be blocking port 25 in some parts of the US). Otherwise identical in function to tm-smtp.prc, but also implements 411/Info queries similar to SMS GOOGL (discussed in another thread).
Only one of these three programs (the original TM, tm-smtp or tm-imap) can be installed on your i500 (or any Palm actually) as they are considered by PalmOS to be the same program. You do not need to uninstall a previous one to overwrite it with another one. Install involves simply fetching the PRC file (e.g. tm-imap.prc) and telling Palm Desktop Installer to install it, then Hotsync. Or even easier, just use an i500 browser like WebPro or nweb, and fetch the PRC file directly into your i500.
More details of all these issues available in earlier threads. I currently use tm-imap.prc because of the 411/Info services. I love to be able to get current weather, 411 and I think the flight status features are neat, particularly when you travel.

Can any of your version send a text to an e-mail address (e.g., SSS@yahoo.com)? That WAS a good feature of I500SMS.
Many thanks (yet again).
BBThat'sssssssss all folks!

So... help me understand why it would be a good feature to add... it would open up further some authentication issues and TM will never be a full blown email client, you wouldn't even be able to reply, look at other emails in your Inbox, etc. I just tried sending a quick email with Snappermail and I don't see it being any slower than TM... what am I missing ?
10-12-2006 06:54 PM #73
I found i500SMS the quickest way to select an e-mail address from my address book, have it entered into the To field and send off a quick e-mail. It did not require me to first log onto the web (say using yahoo via Nweb etc) and did use my Palm directory in a searchable way.
Perhaps Snappermail will prove as easy. When I am responded to a TXT message it was very handy to be able to hit reply because I500SMS was integrated into the SMS system on the phone. I believe Scott is not. (I understand these are separate matters: email and reply although sometimes I wanted to send a reply to an e-mail address and I500 sure made that very easy.) One problem I face is having over 4K entries in my phone book so quick searching is a must.

You are correct, MB. I have started to use snappermail and do like it I keep I500SMS for quickly sending txt to a few numbers I have locked in and can very quickly do a Reply. Might now get rid of Euroda.
I find asking Snapper to pull e-mail once an hour does not eat the battery too badly.
Thanks again for your continuing help.

If you mean the Graffiti keyboard, yes it works fine. While you're in TM, make sure the text cursor is where you want it to be (e.g. the msg body box), and just tap on the lower left hand corner of the Graffiti area (on the little 'a') and the Graffiti keyboard should pop up.

$0.10 for incoming messages?
Has anyone noticed that Sprint is now charging $0.10 per incoming message to the i500, the same phone that never had true SMS capability in the first place?
Or am I the only one getting charged all of a sudden?
10-14-2006 07:19 AM #80
Sprint always charges for incoming text, except for the, "Please call", unless you have a text planSamsung A500<---Old faithful<--> to SPH-I500 but really want the Treo 700P and now I have IT!!
