Question about RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310 Smartphone

Failing to receive sms messages from certain providers

I'm having trouble with my sms messaging and am trying to determine whether this is a blackberry issue that I can fix or an issue with my service provider.

My provider is ATT and, while I can send sms messages to anyone, I do not receive them from Alltell customers or from Verizon customers. This is a huge nuisance.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    My Blackberry 8310 is full of nonsense. My friends will stand next to me and send me a sms. On their phone it wil say "delivered" but I will not receive it. Subsequently, if we do the same exercise 10 minutes later I will get it. Also on this same note I can send a sms to them and it will not deliver. If I resend it will deliver.

    Everything else on this phone works perfectly.

    My service provider is Vodacom and their SP is MTN

    Please help.

This is most likely a Blackberry issue. I had the same phone with a different provider as well as the Blackberry 8703e and they both missed a lot of SMS messages.

The best solution would be to try to stay in an area with a high connection when you're expecting important messages because the problem with the phone itself probably can't be fixed.

I can not send SMS message. SMS Message Center Number Error


I had the same problem and came to this site for help but the solutions didn't solve the problem of "cannot send text message" on htc touch hd. All service numbers correct. Went to START/SETTINGS/CONNECTIONS/ADVANCED NETWORK/SMS SERVICE then changed from "gprs" to "gprs preferred". Double checked and had reverted to "GSM" but sms now works - finally!!! Hope this helps.

''Connection Error & Message Sending Failed''


Try doing a Factory Reset. (PLEASE DO IT ON YOUR OWN RISK - FACTORY RESET WILL DELETE EVERY THING OUT OF YOUR PHONE)

Dial *#7370# now it will ask restore original device settings,yes,it will ask for password its-12345, your phone will restart, all the data on our phone memory will be deleted,and it will be like when you first bought it.

But i don't think so that gonna help you out that much. It seem to be issue with the network. Try using some other Mobile service provider. See if problem still remain their on your mobile.

These kind of error message comes when you have WEAK NETWORK.

SMS sending failed


Hi,

Please try this to find a solution to your problem. Go to Messaging window and select More. Select Settings and SMS account subsequently. Make sure that the 'Connection Type' is 'GSM preferred'. And in the 'SMS Service Center Address' check with your operator Customer Care and make sure the same number is entered. You could tell the Customer Care of your problem and that you wish to verify if your using the correct service center address.

Hope this helps

SMS Inbox Disappeared


Hello Brian, The SMS folder dissapears most probably because another program interferes with it. The same happens on some HP's with camera, where this options dissapears from menu because of some user installed programs. In your case, it doesn't have to be a SMS - messaging related program, there are some compatibility issues and programs that apparently doen't have anything to do with messaging are causing this. You should first try a master reset (hard reset) (save your data first). However in some cases this doesn't help, even if the program that's causing the problem is removed, and you will need a firmware rewrite/update. In order to perform this, or if you don't want to risk performing it yourself please contact me on the live assistance for step by step instuctions. Good luck, Bogdan.
