Text Error 1121611611

Lately I've been getting the following error "1121611611 - Error Invalid Number. Please re-send using a valid 10 digit mobile number or valid short code. .... (and then it lists the actual text that I attempted to send)

So then I go back in a re-send using a 10 digit number and I get the same message. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks! [IMG]http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n243/novarecords/IMG_0001.png[/IMG]

    Same problem. My daughter can text me, but when I try her back using the "valid 10-3igit number" it calls for, it gives me the same error message. This is the only number that does that.

    I've been having this problem since I have had my iphone (3 weeks now). It only happens to certain numbers in my address book. Anyone have a solution on how to fix this?

In order to send a text message on the iPhone, you must have the entire 10-digit phone number in your phonebook. For example. If you are trying to send a text message to the phone number 555-1234, you must also enter the area code. If the area code it 412, you must put in 4125551234 for the phone number.

Hope this helps!!

    As for the person who submitted the original problem:
    after you change the number in your address book, you must delete in your SMS messages where you've tried to send the message before.
    For example, if you sent a message to Johnny Appleseed, and you got that error message, you change in your phone book to the full 10-digit number. Then, back in your SMS app, you must delete the previous message you sent by (one method) click edit at the top left, the click the line in the red circle next to their name, then click delete.
    Then try to resend the message using the new message button.

    Hope this helps!!

How do i delete MyFave on cliq xt


The problem is that even though you've switch your phone to AT&T the t-mobile Visual Voice Mail app is still trying to connect to t-mobile.
You need to: (1) go in to the phone's app settings(2) locate the t-mobile visual voice mail app (3) click on the"Disable" button. This should end the annoying messages.

Text Error 1121611611


I have an unlocked T-Mobile Dash which I am using with AT&T sim card. I had a similar problem - whenever I booted the phone up, I was getting this sms (text) message, until I figured out what it was. The phone at bootup was sending a T-Mobile internal message to invoke the Favorite 5 list refresh, and it was a reply from AT&T network which didn't understand this message.
To fix it I simply removed this shortcut: \Windows\StartUp\My5MsgCenter.

Error when first turned on


The phone probably has some flakey firmware. Have you tried to re-do the over the air programming? *228 with verizon or us cell.
That may fix the problem, or you may have to take it to your local store to have the phone flashed. That resets all the memory to factory fresh. If that doest help let me know ill help all i can!

Be able to send and receive pictures attached to text messages for ATT on a Motorola Razar V3


I have heard about this happening to unlocked phones on AT&Ts network. The best I can find is that the message is occuring because AT&T does automatic software updates based on your IMEI. The network checks on your phone at power up to see if any software updates are needed. If you are using an unlocked phone the IMEI is not one that AT&T has information on or your IMEI is not correct in the account. Motorola may be able to provide assistance in stopping the mesasage. or maybe AT&T can disable the updates.
