You need to check your sim card. Open the back of your phone up and take the battery out and slide your sim card out and then back in. Some sim cards plug in and some slide in under the chassis of the actual phone.

Phone Cannot Send or Receive Calls and Text Messages: A Simple Electronic Glitch


It is frustrating when only your phone cannot send text messages no matter how strong the network signal is. Sometimes you feel nobody cares about or remembers you because nobody calls or texts you but actually there are. Your phone just can't be reached or can't receive text messages. When these happen, turn off the phone; remove the battery and then the SIM card. Insert the SIM card to another phone and try sending text messages; if you still cannot send text messages, remove the SIM card and let it sit off the phone for at least fifteen minutes then insert it gain. You should be able to send text messages after that, but make sure you have credits.

The next thing you should look into is the phone. Make sure network signal is present then insert a known good SIM card in your phone and try sending text messages. Reset the phone if you still cannot send text messages, but back up important files and data, such as contacts, videos, images, and messages, before doing so.

One simple way to "reset" the phone is by removing the battery and letting it sit for at least fifteen minutes. Another way is by restoring the phone settings to factory settings. Simply navigate to settings then phone settings and select "restore to full factory settings" depending on the brand and model of the phone.

This tip is not intended to solve virus or firmware problems but rather to avoid unnecessary visit to the service center and save few bucks from a problem only caused by a simple electronic glitch. Check the network signal strength and your credits before jumping into any conclusion.

My nokia E63 won't send text messages. It will receive them, make calls and receive calls.


First check all the message setting i.e 1.Center number should start with prefix +........Character support it should be "Full" and the "Message sent as" should be "Text".If all these settings are correct the only way to solve is to contact / call the particular customer care.Good luck.

I can receive and make calls but I cannot text. I am not receiving texts either. It just stopped. The error message is that "one or more texts could not be sent".


1. try to check your outbox, if there is an unsent message, try to delete that message if there is. 2. check your phone screen if there is an arrow box with an envelope that appears on top, if there is, there is an unsent message, you can do step 1 3. try to turn your phone off and remove the battery and the sim card, then wait for a few seconds before you turn the unit on

I unlocked a verizon blackberry 9630, once i put my tmobile sim card in it, it lets me send n recieve texts and recieve calls but it doesnt let me make call it say emergency calls only, how can i fix this?


Turn the phone off, count to 5, then turn it back on. It should find the nearest tower for a signal. A bad SIM card won't do this either like one person said. He/she was lied to at the store or by Customer Service. I used to work for AT&T Wireless & this Emergency Only issue was a big one. A bad SIM card won't allow you to place or receive calls or text messages. T-Mobile runs on the GSM network like Cingular/AT&T does. Just remember to turn the phone off for 5 seconds, then turn it back on. Here is the code to reset...*2767*3855# If this is helpful to you, please rate it....
