LifehackerJul 15, 2011 - Cell phones and smartphones will differ in the menu options and buttons, but in general, the process of sending a text message to someone else's phone is pretty straightforward. From your phone's main menu find the "Messages" or "Messaging" option or application. Then select "Text Message" or "Text Messaging."
Press the Menu key Touch Messaging Touch Options Touch Settings Touch Text message Touch Message centres Touch SIM message centre The Message centre name and Message centre number will be displayed. then you can change or add a new number
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...
It will probably stay until a different contact takes it's place. You can also try adding their name again exactly as it was. After that, edit from your list of contacts by changing the contact name and number to that of directory assistance or other contact.
Go into a new text message and hit the "send to" option.Scroll down to the first name above the line and hit the "options" button.Scroll down and select "Recent messages" and choose whoever from that list that you'd like to be your top 3.I actually just sent all three of mine a blank text, but when I went back to the "send to" list voila!MORE INFO:I tried all kinds of things to remove names from my top three recipients list.What ended up working was to send a text to multiple recipients at once.Two was enough. But it was important who I selected first. I sent a message to my wife and my friend.My wife's name got added back to my top three! Then I reversed and sent a message to my friend and to my wife. His name got added back!
ok have you tried reseting your entier moemory on your phone? if that does not work text to your mobile company "no new feature" and if that does not work you can delete out the phone list in your text messages and re-enter them.
