LifehackerJul 15, 2011 - Cell phones and smartphones will differ in the menu options and buttons, but in general, the process of sending a text message to someone else's phone is pretty straightforward. From your phone's main menu find the "Messages" or "Messaging" option or application. Then select "Text Message" or "Text Messaging."
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.
i have the same problem. i have been using this cell for about one year and suddenly this probelm has occured. if i put my sim in another cell phone, i can send messages with the same sim. otherwise, in this set, my messages are send to outbox and in resend state. i can recieve calls/messages but cannot send sms thrugh my samsung. please help! i have checked my message settings. they are all okay.
Have you checked that the phones 'message centre' number hasnt been altered by mistake? In message settings you should find this. It is common that whilst people stumble on this part of the menu that they accidently remove one or two of the last digits. Your network should be able to confirm the number that should be there if your not sure? Also another possibility in settings is how the sms is sent, one of the settings options lets you change between 'text' 'fax' and few others I cant remember. Ensure it is set to 'TEXT'.
That should solve your problem one way or other.
On every phone there are settings that can stop you sending texts. However all phones should still receive texts even if all the settings were changed. As the text message is directed to you mobile number you should still be receiving?
When you compose your text and select contact does the phone move them to the out/sent box?
Settings to check for sending are your 'message centre number' (your network provider can supply and they are normally different for pay monthly and pay & go) 'Message sent as' should be 'text' (not fax or email etc).
Text problems are common where people change or delete digits from the message centre number by mistake.
If you cannot receive texts i would recommend speaking to your provider for help as it may be your account details at their end? (beyond your control). Hope that helps?
Im sorry they are correct unless your phone has been unlocked you should not be vulnerable to viruses. im sorry but your probably gonna have to get it reflashed its something on your providers part. not yours.
