N79 will not let me send text messages!!

My nokia n79 will not let me send text message. It trie to send them then puts them into the outbox and continully tries to resend. I spoke to my network and everything is fine from their end. I also phoned nokia support and they told me i'd need to get my phone re-flashed. Does anyone know if i could possibly have a virus in my phone and if so is their any easier solution or am i just as well to get it re-flashed???? HELP!!

Im sorry they are correct unless your phone has been unlocked you should not be vulnerable to viruses. im sorry but your probably gonna have to get it reflashed its something on your providers part. not yours.

Messages are not being send..they remain in outbox


Try the following Check your message center number is proper or not To check goto Messages>Msg settings>Text msg>see whether Message number is proper or not(To check contact your network operator customer care or you can check from your friends mobile from above method(both message centre to be matched))

If problem persists you need restore your phone by Menu>Settings>Restore Factory Settings>Default Security key will be 12345

I had the same problem.... i could not send text message with my N79.... it's just stored in outbox and keeping on trying to send but it never been sent.... i had checked all the settings on my phone but...


Hello,the problem you are facing now is simply because you have deleted your message center number mistakenly,kindly visit your message center number through your messages icon menu,you then move to message settings there you would see your message center number.if just a digit is deleted from the message center number you will not be able to send messages.all you need to do is to look for someone who is on the same network with you to copy out the message center number correctly and compare with the one you have on your phone,or you can slao get the message center number from your service provider.

take care.

I am unable to send messages from nokia n79,it goes to outbox instead of sent item


Hi,

You cannot send messages because the message centre number stored in your mobile may be wrong.


Please enter the correct message centre number. To get the correct message centre number please call your service provider and they will provide you the number.


Menu > Messaging >Options >Settings > Text message >Message centres


Thank You

When sending a text message it puts it in the outbox and tries to re-send it a few minutes later but it just keeps repeating that...it never gets sent


This is the problem with your tower dude. Also this problem may come because of overloading of the mobile. Try restarting your mobile and then try sending a message. Because i too have faced the same problem with my mobile, and after restart the messages started to go as usual.

Unable to send text messages on my new nokia 5800


All you have to do is go to your message setting on your phone:
1. Open Messaging
2. On New message sellect options at bottom
3. Open settings
4. Open Text message, you should see: Message centre, message centre in use ect..
5. Open message centres this should go to next screen then open again, this screen should have : Message centre name & Message centre number (from your network provider you need to find out what is the message centres name & number are e.g in Australia it should be SMSC1 and number is +61411990001) then just manually enter these in there.
