Re: Cannot send SMS from Sagem myV-55

I recently helped my uncle with this problem by correcting the 'Message Centre Number' which is provided by the network provider. You will probably have to give your network provider a call and make sure you have the correct number entered on your phone. In the case of my uncle's phone, only part of the number was entered on his phone, so it needed to be complete before he could send SMS, even though he could receive them. Hope that helps.

Hi. Regarding sms/txt. When I exceed 450 characters it automatically converts the sms/txt to mms. How can I prevent this? Sms is cheaper than mms when you send it.

You are speaking of SMS concatenation....

By default, all SMS traffic is limited to 160 characters per message.

Depending on the handset and the carrier, if you go over 160 characters the handset may automatically send a second\third message to the recipient to finish the complete message.

Slightly older phones would automatically go to MMS after 160 characters,

Much older phones won't even give you the option of going over 160 characters in one SMS message.

So most likely, the 450 limit is a limit hard coded into the phone.

Unable to send sms from Sony Ericsson Sation. I am able to send MMS, receive SMS, but when I try to send sms, it goes and sits in outbox and resets time resent @ so and so time...


You cannot send messages because the message centre number stored in your mobile may be wrong.

Please enter the correct message centre number. To get the correct message centre number please call your service provider and they will provide you the number.

Thank You

Unable to send sms

Hi all you need to do is contact your service provider and tell them what phone you have got, then ask them to check if your message center number is correct and also ask them to send you the latest settings for mms and wap, they wont charge you for doing this and they send the settings via test message, this will then update your phone and get it working again.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

My phone will not send SMS...only MMS.

If there are too many SMS messages in your phone it will start sending all messages as MMS. All you need to do is delete some of your texts.

Incomming sms is not received in nokia 6030

there are only settings on the phone that will stop sending of messages, settings will not stop the receiving of messages (unless their mms - picture messages). I would suggest you speak to your network as it maybe something on your account at their end that needs fixing?
Incoming mesages (sms) are directed at your mobile number so the phone will receive them as you do a call.
Let us know how you get on?

Not able to send out text msgs

Hi annisa,
sure it looks like a settings problem.
SMS are receveide into your phone, after being routed to the server, and then to your number, from the sernder. When you instead need to send SMS you nned to have SMS server settings correctly set up on your mobile.
The settings depend on your phone company.
You can try copying the SMS and MMS settings from a friend with the same provider (Telekom, U mobile, Maxis, etc).
A better way to fix it is calling mobile provider customer service number, and having assistance and step by step instructions to set up your phone.
If that still does not work, that means that there is a problem with your phone try resetting the phone to factory settings (do a phone reset from settings menu).

Hope that helped.

Cant send sms on nokia 2688

Do you want to sent mms/sms. for sending mms you need to suscribe from your operator and save mms settings on your mobile.
For sms check your message center number with your network provider and input the number in your message setting option.
