Question about Orange SPV C500 Pocket PC
I have kept my old company phone having left and am using a new SIM (orange SIM only) but I cant send text messages although I can receive them and everything else seems to work ok.
The error message says that the SIM isnt valid when I attempt to send. The SMS service centre phone number is missing and when I enter it, the device wont save it / accept it so it remains blank. I have taken battery off to reset and spoken to orange who also sent me a message which was supposed to sort the problem but it remains unresolved. I cant get the phone to accept the SMS service centre number.
Can anyone help?

You can do a Hard Reset which will reset your phone to its original
factory settings. Any applications or personal data you put on the
phone since owning will be lost. You can recover personal file if you
have backed them up, of if you have License 'Key' numbers you got when
you purchase them. Some App suppliers will have you an record and will
email your Lic # if your email has not changed since purchase.
To Hard Reset, turn off your phone and then turn it back own while holding down both left and right soft keys till you get a screen asking if you want to Reset it. Another Hard Reset method, if you can get to Start Menu/Accessories folder when phone is powered, is choose Clear Storage and clear the storage. This may not work on some phone models, but note this method will also reset your phone to 'as purchased' state, with all stuff you added since removed.
Note a Soft Reset is the same thing as just turning phone off then back on as normal. It does nothing but re-power your phone, but a Hard Reset recovers your phone operating system from phones MFG ROM and resets it back to original as purchased state.

Do a Hard Reset by holding down and holding down both left and right soft keys when turning on phone, til you see the Reset screen. All apps and data you put on phone since new will be lost, but original mfg software will reinstall itself.

SOURCE: SPV C500 Charging problem
If you mean the amber 'charging' light does not light when charging, note your PC must have a working Microsoft ActiveSync installed on an XP, Mobile Device Manager on a Vista PC, before the phone will charge from a PC USB port.
If it will also not come on when the AC charger is connected, then I would suspect a bad light or what ever supplies the light.
How do you know it is not chargeing if the phone comes on. Are you saying the phone will only come on when plugged in a PC or AC Charger? If so, I would suspect the battery. Unplug it and clean both the battery terminals on the battery those on the phone the battery mates with. You can use a clean pencil erasure.
Batteries are cheap on ebay.
