If you do not have at least 2 steady bars of reception strength, text messages or pic messages could fail sometimes. If these fail no matter what signal strength, you should contact your phone provider (StraightTalk).
it has to do with the "SMS Message Center", it is a certain number which should be provided by your service provider, after having known what it is, go to menu>messaging>message setting>text messages>message centers> then you will see the list of message centers you pick one or add one if nothing existed, then you edit the name field then the number field (which will be provided by your service provider) then save settings, after going back one step i.e to the menu of "text messages" choose the option of "message center in use" then make sure you have chosen the correct choice which you made and/or edited one step earlier then you save settings, then try to send yourself an SMS, if you have received it successfully then you have done it write! Note: if you are not able to contact your service provider (mobile service company), you can check the needed number through another phone settings which is having sim card from the same service provider.. let us know what happens with you, TC
This could only be caused by a couple of things. The message center number in the handset may not be correct, which will cause the messages to fail. The other possibility is that the feature is not active on your account with your wireless provider. What you need to do is test a couple of things. See if you can send a text/sms message to yourself, in doing this you can verify that you can not only send, but receive text/sms messages. If you cannot send, or receive text/sms messages, then that verifies that the message/service center number is off, and will need to be corrected. If that works, and you can receive text/sms messages, then your service center number is correct, and you will move to the next troubleshooting step, which is to test your web browser. If you cannot launch the web browser on your handset, then this is an issue, because the MMS service requires that you have both SMS, and web browser service to send a MMS message. If you can access the internet and you have the ability to send/receive text/sms, then you need to call your service provider as the issue may be with their service.
There are no settings for receiving SMS from any networks but if you want to send SMS , then the MESSAGE CENTRE NUMBER must be entered into the menu in the message settings.
This number should be given to you by the service provider you are using. SO call up your provider-Vodacom- to confirm the message centre number.
Have you tried the SIM in another handset? Have you reset the handset to default (carrier) settings? If outbound SMS does not work even in another handset, it is more than likely an incorrect routing table entry on your providers end. I had a similar issue where I could not be contacted from one certain network after a number port to a different carrier. The old carrier missed the routing table entry and all my calls from the network were being directed to the wrong IP/Destination.
This may be due to the message center number which will be found in your message settings.
Call up your Provider and ask them the right message center number.
This will work.
Let me know if you need more help.
This can be due to high traffic you sre not able to send message . First check whether the setting is default in the properties of message . Then do master reset in your phone . If you still have problem you need to contact service provider for correct setting .
