I recently lost my old 8130 Pearl. Bought a 9320 to replace it only to find that the this new phone will not send an "text" message as an email using No Data ! Small detail.. I know, but very convenient. That phone was on the most basic voice & text plan with no data. How come the 8130 could send a text message to a email using no data? and what is this feature called. Is there another Blackberry phone that have this capability?
