My nokia 2600 will not send a text message. Possible problem is the message centre setting. I reside in Bulgaria

In the menu go to: Message settings ->Sending profiles-> Message centre number You obtain this number from your service provider and you need it to send text messages. Call the customer service of you provider and ask the number or if they can send a sms with all the info. Usually this number is obtain automatically by you phone when is first connected in the network, but it can "get lost". I don't know your gsm provider, so you have to call them and ask the number.

I can't send messages using my N71. i've been using it since may 2010, but just yesterday, i can't send, even checking my load was a failure. when i changed phones, i was able to send a message, so there's...

First restore the phone to it's default settings. Menu > Settings > press up key once and "Restore Default" enter the code 12345 (if you have changed it, please use yours) and let it restart itself. Now try sending the message again.

If this doesn't help, you need to check the message center number from the message settings, Go to message, select options and settings/message settings and then text message settings and look for sending profile or message center, delete all the message center numbers and create a new one with the number that was on your other phone or copy it from another friend/user who is using the same network sim card or just restart the handset.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I can receive txt msg and make and receive calls on my nokia e65 but cannot send txt msg. Why would this be?


I think when you send text message it says message failed...right..???

This is because there is option in your mobile called as message service centre number.please check weather this number is correct.Call your service provider and you can get this number.

And also there is an option called as reply via same message centre please put this to 'NO'. now you can send messages

To go to this options please check follow these steps.... 'menu' 'messages'
3.Go to 'message settings' that open 'text message'
5.there is an option called as 'message centre',please entre your new message centre number and save it. set this as your message centre
6.Check the option 'reply via same centre' and please put it to 'NO'

Will not send texts

Check your message setting, Open the Profile in your message settings and clarify the center number, you can compare with other's who is using the same service operator. The Center number should be same. If you see the center number is not correct, you can edit it and save it. If it's similar, then reset your phone to default settings "Restore Factory" using the code 12345 (if you haven't changed it), and check once again. If this even doesn't solve, then contact the service provider using the customer care number and tell them your problem. Good luck

I get a failed message when I try sending a text

It may the Message Centre has been set up incorrectly or changed from your service provider.

Check the number you have by going to Text/ Options/ Settings/ Message Centre.

If this isn't as it should be or changed - Check with your Mobile Network the correct number along with the prefix codes.
