    Can't send Text message while roaming

    I have a fusic (which I just got about a week or so ago)...while roaming on Verizon I am not able to send a text message....is this some sort of bug or are we just not allowed to send text messages while roaming?

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Not sure about the Fusic, but not all Sprint phones have firmware that allows it. SMS while roaming used to not be supported by Sprint, but they seem to have changed that policy a couple of years ago. Some phones (new models) can, some can't, and Sprint is not known to issue firmware updates to support new funcationality in phones. For example Sanyo 2300 can receive SMS while roaming, but not send. Sanyo 2400 and Katana can do both.

    The fusic with the latest firmware can do it. As a matter of fact, my brother who got the Fusic over five months ago, was able to text while roaming without any firmware updates.

    Hmmmm interesting...wonder why I can't...I did just get the latest PRL update yesterday, but I doubt that would be a problem....I guess I will just have to get the firmware updated when I get a chance.

    There should be an option in your phone menu to update the software on the phone. Do the update and try to send a text while roaming.
