All service providers have a message route number. This number is kind of like a mail room. It sorts out where the mail goes. The number could be incorrect. Either look for it in your old phone and make sure they are the same. Or call your service provider and they should be able to change it right on the spot.
Hope this helps.

try turning off off for a min. or two that always help. call your co. and find out if the tranmitters are working they may be working on something in the area you are at. they can tell you if you have fair, good, or great coverage just by telling them the area ( zip coded) you are in. If all else fails like it my case, request a new 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.
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?
Im wondering the legitimacy of the text you recieved if it was actually real. As a standard practice, Most wireless carriers never solicit you for an extra warranty through a text message. Those who sent you that message might be phishing for personal info and you might have fallen into the trap.
Your best bet is to contact the dealer you purchased your phone from for further assistance with this problem.
