Twitter confusion.... can anyone advise please...?

Hi All

I'm after some advice from any tweeter mobile users on here. I'm having a little trouble setting up my phone to use the twitter service. I've followed the clear instructions, and done the following;

Sent START to 86444 - this worked as I had a reply asking for my username

Sent JVBurns to 86444 - this also worked, as I then had a reply asking me to send my password... but this is where I am struggling. I sent it, but I keep getting a reply saying that this is the wrong password. I am not sure I am doing it correctly. This is what the SMS says...

"Oops! That password is not correct, try again. Reply w/ your password."

What would you send as a reply to this message...? what does the w/ mean...?

I know my password is correct as I have changed it and am typing it in correctly.

Ta

Bingo Iain, all sorted now.

I think it was related to a number used in my password that I perhaps wasn't typing correctly into my bberry. I amended my password to be some ridiculously long character based one, and all works now. i have just sent my first SMS based tweet!!

JVBurns is my Twitter name if anyone is that sad!
