    First of all I would suggest you download handcent from the market.. but when you click the green messaging icon, it should bring up a white screen with [New Message] at the top and any old messages listed under that.. are you completely stock?

    Try doing it this way. Go to a contact. Select SMS. Send your text.

    I'm pretty sure you're just missing something to be honest with you. 99% of people who have problems right away are simply in the learning curve. Once you get past that curve you'll be fine.

    HI if I go to "contacts" and click on the name it brings up the name and cell number and a smiley face next to the number if I click on that I can then text I have no SMS function...

    Yes when I clikc on the messaging ICON on the main page it brings up that page of the phone but it has end call in red the other buttons do nothing if you touch them...

    see why I am confused?

    thanks maybe you can help me get through this mess
