    I am having trouble sending text messages to numbers like CHACHA(242242)which is a question answering service or facebook at FBOOK(32665) and it just shows message failure. its an iPhone 3G and i got it on tuesday and would like to have this working so i can use it. is there any way that i can do this in my messages.app? I live in Canada and im on Bell Mobility.

    I don't know why it doesnt work but for the facebook thing you could just use the facebook app.. I know an unlimited data plan is required in the US on AT&T but I have no idea about canada

    Google says Chacha shortcode doesn't work in Canada. You had it working before on another phone?

    Well I have never used it one of my phones cause my old old old phone wasn't capable of doing it. What about the google short code?
