Re: texting taking too long

Nstall SMS Accelerator in your phone. This will boosts up your phone.

All over the Internet, complaints can be found from users of Nokia's E61, N73, and N80 phones who all share the "SMS Problem".

Symptoms of this issue include a phone taking up to 10 minutes to send a text message and then hanging until this process is over.

Despite complains even on Nokia's consumer site, there has been feedback from Nokia until early two weeks ago when they quietly rolled out a patch called the Nokia SMS Accelerator.
Nokia's support site say the application 'accelerates the sending of SMS messaging", but its more of a bug fix which hopeful will find its way into future firmware versions.

"The only solution prior to this patch was a system reformat, in fact I was about to reformat my phone when I found out about the patch last night. I've installed it and it has corrected my problem."

The patch can be downloaded from Nokia's Support Site: E61 | N80 | N73 .
Hope this will solve your problem.

Good Luck

Cant send or recieve text messages on my mobile phone

hi, if you are having trouble sending or recieving text messages then the fisrt thing you need to do is delete all the sent and recieved messages and also drafts due to the fact that if your memory is full this will give you loads of problem sending and recieving text or mms messages so deleting these will then get your messages working again.

If how ever you still cant send or recieve text messages then the chances are that your message center number is wrong or got mest up, what you need to do is contact your service provider and ask them to send you the text message center number settings, they will then tell you the correct message center number and how to change this setting on your phone.

They wont charge for this and it will only take 2 minutes to solve your problem.

My lgpi 340n cannot receive and send text messages, what will i do?

If it used to send/receive text messages and no longer does I recommend shutting off the phone, taking out the battery for a minute or two, then reinstall the battery and try again. I'm assuming your phone plan allows you to text, yes?

When I try sending a text message a red x appears and the message does not send

First of all, make sure that you have service and that your service includes text messaging. If you have all of the above, without powering off your phone, take the back of your phone off and take the battery out. Leave it out for a minute or so and place it back in. Replace the back of your phone. Power it back on. Retry sending messages. I hope this helps.

Recieving text messages

Usually the messages are stored in databases with your service provider and it will come through according to date/time.
If you believe you are missing a few texts and you'd like to make sure that you dont then what you could simply do is send yourself a text from your mobile and it should bounce back, pushing forward all the texts that are still in the database.
It may seem costly, but it might be an urgent/unexpected text.
