3G PlayStation Vitas Receive Text Messages

In a bit of strange news, 3G PlayStation Vitas can receive text messages. From the "System Information" section in the 3G Vita's Settings, a phone number is clearly visible. However, without the ability to dial out, IGN assumed the feature was just some kind of 3G orphan from AT&T -- calling the number is a dead end.

thats the phone number thats assigned to your 3G sim card , if you have AT&T service you can use your own phone number if not you will be assigned one therefore you will receive text messages from the operator ( in my case AT&T )

Give us the ability to send text messages and I could all but throw my mobile phone away.

HeavenlySnipes4506d ago

I think you phrased that wrong

CynicalVision4506d ago

Really? But it sounds right when I say it back in my head. xD

You can already do that. Vita has friends list and you can send and receive messages back and forth just like on PS3.

CynicalVision4506d ago (Edited 4506d ago )

No, this is completely different. Mobile texting is sending messages to anyone with the ability to receive them...i.e they have a mobile phone.

Think of it this way, being able to send a text message from your Vita to your friend who uses a standard phone via texts.

Its pretty much all I use my phone for. I hate talking on the phone. If that were the case I would as happy as a pig in s#!+.

I'm not really a texter. But It would be great if we could send text messages. I pre-ordered the Wi-fi model. I think the 3G is a bit over priced.

You need it so you can get a conformation code to create a vodaphone account for it here in the UK.

Nah. Ff9 was a better game that many slept on when it released. Ff8 was a good one to, I hated the level scaling though. Still up there in the top 5 though. They sure don't make them like they used to unfortunately

FF9 just represents the best of the series , I really hope it gets like the Link Awakening/Super Mario RPG treatment . FF8 on the other hand would need a complete overhaul from the combat to the story telling (because the story was really silly) , I remember hardly ever using magic as it was basically losing stats every time you used them especially the rarer junctions , the combat was basically attack, limit breaks, summoning and 80% of the time drawing magic . Only thing 8 had better was its card game .

Make it an actual remake of the game and not a reboot of the first hours of the game just to release the next hours some years later and nothing of it feels like FF9 actually aside from the same characters and locations used.

I just hope they don't divide into trilogy please...Full game from start to finish? Maybe in 2 parts maximum?

andy856h ago

Seems like this is just one game thankfully and not on the scale of FF7

Thank you for your reply! that's awesome news. I wish it was VIII first as I like 8 more than 9...
