Text message option not available on contact list

When I select a contact from my contacts list I am given the options of editting their information, calling them or deleting them, but texting is grayed out on everyone. I have the phone numbers listed as mobile so I'm not sure what the problem is.

Re: Text message option not available on contact list

Do you have a corporate BES account or a personal BIS account...


In other words, could there be a no-texting IT Policy placed on your BlackBerry, if it is a corporate device?
