Question about Motorola Mobility Milestone XT720

1 Answer

I randomly cannot send text messages to people. This happens very often but randomly. This is a new phone with a sim card I used before so it is obviously not the carrier but the phone itself.

Not always could be in the sim card could be the carrier or the phone...have your carrier take a look at it if they find nothing wrong then swap the sim card

SOURCE: Phone Sending MMS Messages as Default

The phone allocates a certain amount of storage for messages on a whole. Even though there may still show space available for text messages, you have hit an invisible "limit" and the phone is now defaulting to MMS messages because there is "room" there. Delete a fair amount of messages and you should be able to start sending regular text's again.

SOURCE: I am unable to send pictures from my motorola razr

Hi , The settings for this function are stored on the phone via txt message from your service provider (virgin).When you use your sim in a different phone all you do is request settings to be resent and install from the options that come with the message , check the phones/sim stored numbers for virgin to txt "get settings" , or check online for the number to request

Phone Cannot Send or Receive Calls and Text Messages: A Simple Electronic Glitch


It is frustrating when only your phone cannot send text messages no matter how strong the network signal is. Sometimes you feel nobody cares about or remembers you because nobody calls or texts you but actually there are. Your phone just can't be reached or can't receive text messages. When these happen, turn off the phone; remove the battery and then the SIM card. Insert the SIM card to another phone and try sending text messages; if you still cannot send text messages, remove the SIM card and let it sit off the phone for at least fifteen minutes then insert it gain. You should be able to send text messages after that, but make sure you have credits.

The next thing you should look into is the phone. Make sure network signal is present then insert a known good SIM card in your phone and try sending text messages. Reset the phone if you still cannot send text messages, but back up important files and data, such as contacts, videos, images, and messages, before doing so.

One simple way to "reset" the phone is by removing the battery and letting it sit for at least fifteen minutes. Another way is by restoring the phone settings to factory settings. Simply navigate to settings then phone settings and select "restore to full factory settings" depending on the brand and model of the phone.

This tip is not intended to solve virus or firmware problems but rather to avoid unnecessary visit to the service center and save few bucks from a problem only caused by a simple electronic glitch. Check the network signal strength and your credits before jumping into any conclusion.

With my verizon, i attempted to send a text message to someone but as my phone said it was sending a screen popped up saying "Message sending failed." This has happened to me probaly about ever...


hmm, the only way you won't be able to send messeges, and receive that notification is 1. you have bad reception, 2. the phone you sent it to has your number blocked. 3. your phone is using an incorrect carrier sim card.

Cant send text message,but i can receive text messages,i try to put my sim on other phone and i figure out that the problem is on my phone because i can send text message using other phone.what should i do...


It's very possible that your problem is with the SIM card. Many phones will not accept a SIM card after it has been used in another phone. Or, some functions like text messaging or Internet service will not work.

The only other solution is that your phone is not correctly configured to your Cellular service provider's frequencies for messaging. You can contact your Cellular Service Provider and ask for Tech Support. They can walk you through making sure your phone is correctly configured.

"error sending message" in my sms text message


This seems to be a recurring problem that I have discovered was a problem with both the original iPhone as well as the iPhone 3g. I just had this happen to me 3 days into owning the phone and the "solution" set forth to me by the apple tech at AT&T was to go into settings and place the phone on airplane mode for a couple minutes and switch it back. This surprisingly worked for me albeit for a matter of minutes. I was then instructed to do a Network reset also through settings under the "Reset" category at the bottom. Although it didn't immediately resolve the problem, after I manually entered my friend's number each time I texted for about 4 texts I have been able to text uninterrupted so far. Not sure this is a permanent fix yet but it's worth a shot for you guys as well.

Outbound Text Message


It's a operator message. Your SIM card need to send a message to the operator to inform something about your phone (like you are using a new phone) but the receiver don't recognize for what the message is. Your sim card will keep sending the message until it receives a valid response.
Try to change the SIM card and see what happens. If the problem appears only with one card, you may ask your carrier company to change it.
