SMS Text - No always working ?

Bold 9700 running v5.0.0.330


I've had this phone about a year, and haven't had too many issues aside from it

not recognizing contact names when recieving SMS text - a seperate thread.


However, recently is seems that when trying to create a new SMS text, to a person

in my contacts list, i go through the motions of typing the text, and when trying to senf the unit jump me out

back to my email !!


I need to go to the SMS / MMS icon - select Compose SMS Text - enter the contact name, wait for whatever reason, then type the text, and hit send.

Anyone know why when i select a contact, and attempt to compose and SMS it jumps me back to my email?
