    Been looking on AT&T for some info and poked around here for this. I'm trying to figure out how to send a text message to my Curve- using an email type address. My old Razr used the 1xxxxxxxxxx@mobile.att.net (I think that was it) so I could send myself notes from work.
    However, that does not get through to the Curve. Tried to set up a BIS entry for that and came upon a stumbling block- it cannot configure at that domain or something. Have they changed that @blah.blah to something else?

    I DON'T want to send a message to the att.blackberry.net account. I need the 10digit method to receive alerts from the NYC Marathon about a relative who is running in Sunday's race.

    So I guess the short question is: What is the address for a text message to get to the Curve?

    Thanks for all the help!!! With all the input I finally solved it.
    You will notice that I said "10 Digit Addy"- anyone notice that by adding the "1", I had 11 numbers...

    But it turns out to be the 10 digits WITHOUT the one @ txt.att.net

    So, trucky- you were right-

    I'll put it down as a ID-10-T Error....

    Hah! Glad you solved the puzzle. I was wondering why yours wouldn't work and everyone else I know on AT&T did.

    And, everyone here who hasn't done a similar thing, raise your hand.

    No hands, good... Happy Trails

    I guess now I know why I haven't been able to email my phone from my contacts list- it still has the att.mobile thing... I never changed that.

    whooo boy... one of those days...

    Thanks again

    Does anyone have an updated list for the major carriers, like T-Mo, Verizon, Sprint?

    I think this is a bit more recent than the other one.
