So you are using a ATT Sim card in the Sprint Palm phone ?

Who is the service provider of the Phone that you are trying to send the SMS to ?

Is that other Phone able to receive SMS from other phones ?

no, I'm not using at &t sim card..using a sprint phone with a sprint card, his phone is at&t iphone. Yes, he gets other txts from other phones and providers.

You need to plug in your SIM card to some other cell phone (just borrow it from anyone) and see if you are able to send that SMS.

If it goes through, then your instruction has issues. Else your SIM card has issues.

Once you confirm that, goto any Sprint store near you and get the malfunctioning part replaced by them.
