hey steven sc480 i experienced the same problem on the samsung a877 where the phone wont send anything. i finally learned after a while that the only solution to the problem is to restart it. its very annoying but u just have to accept it or upgrade to a new phone. the model i had which was the impression was notorious for its pink screen of death where the phone sends so many messages it just decides to turn the screen pink. but anyway i think that may be a relation in some of their phones. i know its annoying but i just got used to it. sorry
there are several factors why you are unable to send and receive messages and make outgoing calls and receive incoming calls.
network issue: are you the only one experiencing the problem? try to check with someone who is on the same location and is using the same network as you if he or she is experiencing the same problem as you. if yes, then it may be a problem with your network.
make sure that you have good signal and contact your service provider too and ask them if they have an ongoing maintenance in the area and ask if the sms and calls services are activated on your account
phone issue: if you have a good signal and still can't send, receive text messages, do and receive incoming, outgoing calls, try to do these: call the service provider and ask for the default network pin, then go to the settings of your phone, call settings, call barring, deactivate all barring
try inserting your sim card to another phone and try to send an sms
turn off your phone, remove battery and sim card and then wait for a few seconds, then put back the sim and battery and turn on the phone then try to send an sms
click REPLY to the SPAM TEXT MESSAGES. In your message type this word in all capital letters:: STOP
If that does not work, enter your LG phone menu, go to your messages, find MESSAGE SETTINGS, there you will be able to find options that will help you BLOCK RECEIVING TEXT MESSAGES. It may also be found in PHONE SETTINGS, in the SECURITY SECTION under RESTRICTIONS. There you are able to BLOCK INCOMING/OUTGOING PHONE CALLS AND TEXT MESSAGES AS WELL...
Does the phone ring when you receive an incoming call? If so, press Menu go to Control Panel (or might be the profile is shown in the menu) after control panel, Profile then Options and then Personalize, then, scroll down and again select Message Alert Tone, set the Tone for the message. Also make sure that the volume is turned up. Save the settings and try again. If this doesn't help and you don't hear any ring tone during an incoming call, let me know after checking the sound settings.
Follow this steps in the given order - 1) Switch off your phone 2) Remove memory card 3) Switch on your phone 4) Ask a friend to send you a message. Now you will hear the tone 5) Switch off, insert the memory card & switch on again 6) Ask someone to send a message again. It will work
