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: Nokia 2310 suddenly stopped sending text message

If the SIM works fine in other phones, there is a phone issue. See if you're eligible for a warranty replacement (eligible if purchased new from AT&T within the last year or if purchased refurbished from AT&T within the last 90 days). If ineligible and you have insurance, use it... there will be a $50 deductible applied to your next bill. If ineligible and you haven't got insurance, get a replacement through somewhere like ebay or craigslist, upgrade (never EVER use wirefly or amazon, trust me) through AT&T preferably, or purchase a gophone (AT&T prepaid) from walmart, walgreens, wherever (If you go to RadioShack, they'll do everything for you). You just put your SIM in it and it will have your phone number and contract information... you don't have to sign up for prepaid service.

SOURCE: My phone sends duplicate texts

this is late, but for anyone else wanting to know, this occurs when your message reaches the companies smsc [short message service centre] it fails to send to the recipient at first, so it stores itself on the centre [or logs] and will attempt to send multiple times over the course of the next 48-72 hours depending on how they have their engineering setup. This can result in multiple sms, this is most likely not your handset, but in rare cases with certain phones, like blackberry handsets and some older symbian [vulnerable to hackers] can do this. So call your provider and get them to raise a fault through their networks, then if it fails, look into your handset.

I would take your phone into the store you bought it from. Ask them to check if it is under warranty. Your phone may need to be repaired or replaced.

When my sister-in-law texts me, the first one is always fine, but the subsequent texts are symbols and gibberish. They look fine on her end. Any suggestions?


If your sister in-law has an iPhone that's probably the culprit right there that's affecting the receipt of her text messages to your Android phone.

1. If she has an iPhone, ask her if her iMessage is on when she texts you. iMessage is only compatible to other iPhones and not other brands she sends to.

2. Is she sending you text messages using the iPhone emoji keyboard? letter accents? or in a different language other than English? this could be the problem when the different cellular carrier interprets the data and sends it to your Android phone that does not have the same compatible software.

Ask her to send you several test text messages in plain text without accents, no special symbols, and no emoji's. If this solved the problem, then you know what went wrong..

If you are still getting garbled text messages even with her iMessages off, and she is just sending you standard text without any symbols, icons, or pictures.. then it could be another issue.. Call your service provider to see what could be wrong.

iPhone: SMS messages may display incorrectly on other devices:

i would suggest calling on a different phone so that you will be able to troubleshoot the phone in question while talking with Tech Support

in the US, the major cellular companies are:
AT&T Wireless Customer Support: 1-800-331-0500
Sprint Wireless Customer Support: 1-888-211-4727
T-Mobile Wireless Customer Support: 1-877-453-1304
Verizon Wireless Customer Support: 1-800-922-0204

Device is a ZTE Grand X Max cell phone with cricket wireless Unable to send text messages. Able to send pic without text Able to receive text message Error code reads 111


best will be to set the message centre number over again from the message settings............look for the sim pack manual for the message centre number.

To make it easy you can insert the sim in a nomal phone (not a smart phone)
go to the message settings and make the changes from there.
re-insert the sim back in your smartphone and try sending messages again.

Another option
enter *#*#4636#*#*
should display a "Testing Menu"

Choose phone information and scroll till you find "SMSC" section
click on "refresh" and if it gives an error then you will have to enter the message centre number in an international format and click on "update"
Note that sometimes the message number can be in a code form and that will need to be converted before entering that code read more here SMSC Updates CyanogenMod )

Please do let me know the outcome.

I can't send an MMS or pic on my straight talk ZTE Majesty cell phone


If you do not have at least 2 steady bars of reception strength, text messages or pic messages could fail sometimes. If these fail no matter what signal strength, you should contact your phone provider (StraightTalk).

Cant send picture message with my zte warp


Just an fyi, sounds like a common issue.. as I have the same issue all of a sudden. So all the mumbo jumbo about its "probably" this or that is wrong. It's the phone. Also I updated the software and firmware... n that just made it worse.

Getting a bunch of garbled up symbols instead of normal english text messages occasionally


I think it's Virgin Mobile acting up again. As always. Mine is doing the same thing. If you look online you'll see other posts from different places today about the same thing.
