    I have the same problem with my N73 cellphone... When I try sending sms messages a message appears on the screen which says "Unable to send" ..And when I click for the details it says "Check network services" ..Someone suggested reformating the cellphone as a solution, but I am not quite sure about reformatting. Can someone please give me their opinion on this. Thanks..

Hi,
This is a common problem. But there is a solution for this problem.
go to Messaging. Then hit Options. Scroll down to settings.
Hit text message. Options - Then "Message Centres".
Hit the Edit button and the following number should come up:

+47973100973
Save it and try sending messages. If again the same problem exist then call up your customer care who provides the services of your phone like Airtel, Reliance etc.. Ask the message center number and follow the above steps and save that service center number. Hopefully it should work. Thank you......

Problem is still there after confirmation of message centre number.
I think the only solution for this problem is to reinstall the software coz this particular problem in N73 is a common one. So am also about to reinstall the software.

I can't send an MMS or pic on my straight talk ZTE Majesty cell phone


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).

I'm using Nokia 2700 Classic. I've a problem with


this is not really a problem but understanding should be clear:
Multimedia Messaging Service(MMS)

MMS is a descendant of SMS (Short Messaging Service). MMS extends text messaging to include longer text, graphics, photos, audio clips, video clips, or any combination of the above, within certain size limits.

MMS is frequently used to send photos and videos from camera phones to other MMS phones or email accounts. Most camera phones have MMS, but many non-camera phones have it as well.

if it has a photo, video or audio it will automatically be categorize as MMS
While SMS stands for short message service. SMS is also often referred to as texting, sending text messages or text messaging. The service allows for short text messages to be sent from one cell phone to another cell phone or from the Web to another cell phone. purely text:

My mms messages do not send on my curve 8520, they try to send for a long time then show it failed to send, i tried sending to myself and that did not work


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.

I can't receive my SMS immediately


I think your mobile's internal antenna is harmed. It is not catching the network properly, so take it to an authorized dealer and get it serviced.
