This sounds like you're out of credit on your phone. When I send texts, I'm charged a fee. But it's free to receive them. Maybe this is why?

To avoid this problem, you can send and receive texts through your email account. That way you always get your texts, whether or not you're out of credit on your phone. Try Bulletin Messenger: https://www.bulletin.net/product-messenger.html

SOURCE: able to recieve text messages

To do a test on your text messaging capabilities, you can send yourself a text message by entering your mobile number in the to/receipent field. In doing this you are testing your in/out messaging. If you are not able to receive text, then you will need to call your wireless provider to have the issue corrected. The outgoing and incoming messaging features are separate in the cellular switch, which means that one would work and the other not.

SOURCE: I have an HTC touch2.

Hi,

The problem is from the message center number, you will need to check it for right message center number. From the menu on your phone, go to message, from message go to setting, next to message center to check if the message center number is correct. the way you can no if the message center is correct is to compare it with a friend phone that uses the same network as yours using the same network as yours.
If after making comparison with your friends number, set it to the real message center number, your text messages will start sending.
You can also call you network service provider to get the message center number.

SOURCE: I have an htc hero.

its probably a network issue if its limited to only one of your contacts... what I would do is first hard reset the phone if that does not work then call your network provider and ask for tech support and they should be able to open a trouble ticket to resolve the issue, I have heard of this issue before with Sprint

Cant send or recieve text messages on my mobile phone


hi, if you are having trouble sending or recieving text messages then the fisrt thing you need to do is delete all the sent and recieved messages and also drafts due to the fact that if your memory is full this will give you loads of problem sending and recieving text or mms messages so deleting these will then get your messages working again.

If how ever you still cant send or recieve text messages then the chances are that your message center number is wrong or got mest up, what you need to do is contact your service provider and ask them to send you the text message center number settings, they will then tell you the correct message center number and how to change this setting on your phone.

They wont charge for this and it will only take 2 minutes to solve your problem.

Have a LG Cookie 500 when I send a text get =cannot send/retrieve messages, just stoped sending I can recieve text! got new sim but still the same Please Help!


This can occur when you compose a message and then hit recipient and then enter the contacts name. The phone will say 'Sending' then 'Cannot send/retrieve messages'.If you enter the recipients NUMBER the transmission will work OK.

If you want to send a text to someone by NAME, select their name from the 'Contacts' list then hit the Message icon (envelope). Write the message then hit send...

Phone wont send or recieve txts


On every phone there are settings that can stop you sending texts. However all phones should still receive texts even if all the settings were changed. As the text message is directed to you mobile number you should still be receiving?
When you compose your text and select contact does the phone move them to the out/sent box?
Settings to check for sending are your 'message centre number' (your network provider can supply and they are normally different for pay monthly and pay & go) 'Message sent as' should be 'text' (not fax or email etc).
Text problems are common where people change or delete digits from the message centre number by mistake.
If you cannot receive texts i would recommend speaking to your provider for help as it may be your account details at their end? (beyond your control). Hope that helps?

Want to know how to send picture messages


Ok, ask the person you are trying to send the picture to if they pay to recieve picture messaging or if it is just text messages. Unless they have a service provider like cricket then the text and picture messages have to be paid for seperatly. Like with sprint/nextel text is .10 cents and pictures are .25 cents. It depends on their provider.
