    drez: Also, there should be an option on your phone whether you would like to save your text messages to your sim card, memory card, or phone. Just like a picture, ring tone, or song.

    @drez, how do I get to that part where the phone asks if i can save the text message to my sim card, memory or phone?

If you connect your phone to your computer using the included USB cable, you should be able to search any files that are on your sim card, memory card, or phone. Also, there should be an option on your phone whether you would like to save your text messages to your sim card, memory card, or phone. Just like a picture, ring tone, or song. Hope this helps.

I can't receive nor text message to one person and vice versa. We both have iPhones and this is a recent problem this past week.


First, make sure one of you didn't somehow accidentally block the other person on your phone (Settings > Messages > Blocked)

Second, try doing a hard reset (hold home button and lock button at the same time until the apple logo appears on the screen).

If that doesn't work, try turning off iMessage (Settings > Messages) and then turning it back on.

If neither of those options work, it's likely an issue with your cellular provider. Talk to them. You might just need to get a new SIM card.

How do I download my text messages from an HTC Wildfire phone to a PC, so that they are not lost when I change to a new SIM card?


Messages in phone are not lost when you change your SIM card but if messages are stored in SIM card, you can copy then to phone.
To copy SIM messages to phone do the following: 1. Open Messages 2. Press Menu and select settings. 3. Scroll down and select "Manage SIM messages" 4. Select Messages in SIM and copy or move to phone memory Now when you change your SIM, these messages will remain in the phone
But, if you mean changing the phone, download a simple program called SMS backup & Restore. It will backup your messages to memory card in a file. You can save the file on pc and restore your messages to other phone when you change your phone.
Here is Android Market Link to download SMS Back & Restore:

How do i transfer contacts and texts to my sim card


Dear user,

For transfer of phone numbers on SIM card you have to go to phone book menu and enter options , inside these option you may find copy phone numbers to SIM card or vice versa, its always good to keep SIM as default memory if you keep changing phones but at the same time you will have limited space and limited flexibility of data storage per contact

As far as transferring SMS on SIM I dobut if its possible now, one thing could be you set your phone now in such a manner that all messages get saved in the SIM memory, this setting maybe available in messages settings.

I try to send a txt msg to one specific recipient and it keeps saying sending message has failed and its only to that one specific person all other txts go through


Hi, issues like this are related to your Sim card (network),
not your Cell Phone . In most cases, regarding the text messages,
the problem is from the Service Operator. Have you tried the Sim card on another phone? If not,
remove the Sim card, insert it on another phone and try sending a message from another mobile to you number,
or you can do it in vice- versa by inserting another Sim card on your mobile.

If you can't receive text messages even when it's inserted on another handset,
then you will need to call the customer care of your Network Operator and tell
them your problem, they will help you fix it immediately.

You can check the message center number, but I don't think
it's very much important in your case, well, if you wanna try,
just check the text message settings and verify that the message
center number (which is currently in use) is the same number which
is on another phone with the same network (the other Sim should be
of the same network in your area). If it's different, make the changes
and save the settings. Also disable the "Receive Via" or similar settings..
(I can't recollect the exact settings as i don't have the same model with
me, please excuse me for this.).

If the same Sim card doesn't receive text messages using another handset,
don't bother to change the settings or to make any changes with it,
first call the customer care and verify from them, you may make mistakes instead of fixing it.


Hope that helps.

MODEL NOKIA 6021 CONTACTS STORED IN PHONE MEMORY DELETED BY MISTAKE HOW CAN I RETRIEVE IT?


H,

Once you delete the phone numbers from phone then it is not possible to retrive the phone numbers.

If you saved the numbers in SIM card then you can copy to phone memory.

To copy contacts from SIM card to phone,Contacts > Copy. You can copy names and phone numbers from the phone contact memory to the SIM card memory or vice versa.



Thank You

Storing text messages


This is because the Razr stores texts and emails dynamically according to message size and physical memory available. To balance it out, you would have to delete some outbox messages to store more inbox messages and vice versa. The amount of pictures, ringtones, incoming/outgoing calls, emails, texts, and videos all are drawn off the physical memory of the Razr. The device does not have dedicated application memory so everything is taken off the small amount of memory you are given. Newer Razr's such as the V3m for Sprint offer Memory Cards to supplement additional memory. Your device is equipped with a microSD card slot and you can save your music, pictures, and videos to the card and leave the additional phone memory to texts and application memory. You may not be able to save that much more if you move the pictures and music, but you can save more than if you didnt have a memory card. When reaching the maximum limit of memory the phone will tell you that you need to delete some files before continuing to do anything on the phone.
