Sounds like the phone hasn't been unlocked properly. I had a similar problem and eventually just changed my sim to the original phones network. This solved all problems but i don't know wether this is the full solution to your issue. I tried to help best as though dude.
Cheers.

SHOWS OFFLINE MODE CANT RECEIVE OR SEND TEXT. DO I NEED TO REMOVE OFFLINE AND HOW?


no offline mode means that your is not receiving a signal from your network or rather the inserted sim is already expired. possible solution:
1. check whether your sim card is not expired by inserting it other phone. 2. remove the battery and wipe the sim card pad with a cotton soaked in a lighter fluid. this will clean the sim card contacts in your phone

I can receive SMS text from everyone but my wifes. I can send them to her and she receives them.


Hi, issues like this are related to your Sim card (network),
not your Cell Phone . In most cases, regarding the text messages,
the problem is from the Service Operator. Have you tried the Sim card on another phone? If not,
remove the Sim card, insert it on another phone and try sending a message from another mobile to you number,
or you can do it in vise- versa by inserting another Sim card on your mobile.

If you can't receive text messages even when it's inserted on another handset,
then you will need to call the customer care of your Network Operator and tell
them your problem, they will help you fix it immediately.

You can check the message center number, but I don't think
it's very much important in your case, well, if you wanna try,
just check the text message settings and verify that the message
center number (which is currently in use) is the same number which
is on another phone with the same network (the other Sim should be
of the same network in your area). If it's different, make the changes
and save the settings. Also disable the "Receive Via" or similar settings..
(I can't recollect the exact settings as i don't have the same model with
me, please excuse me for this.).

If the same Sim card doesn't receive text messages using another handset,
don't bother to change the settings or to make any changes with it,
first call the customer care and verify from them, you may make mistakes instead of fixing it.


Hope that helps.

Thanks for using fixya.......

No network coverage


Phone is not receiving any radio signal / received signal is too weak:
Confirm that network coverage is available where you are by contacting your service provider.

SIM card is not working properly:

Insert your SIM card into another phone
Note: Contact your service provider if you get the same message again.
Phone is not working properly:
Insert your SIM card into another phone. If the second phone works with the inserted SIM card, then
the problem is probably with the first instrument.

Note: In this case, contact your nearest Sony Ericsson service center regarding your phone problem.
