Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

UNANSWERED - I have a Tracfone BYOP plan and for months I haven't been receiving all of my sms and some of the sms I send are not received.

The contacts vary, it is not just one person. Tracfone was not able to help and suggested it was the phone (Asus Zenfone 3 Laser Z01BDC). It happens regardless of if I have data turned on or not and I often miss one message in the middle of a convo.

    @afairman1927 were you able to find any info? I cannot even open the back to remove the battery because it has tiny screws that would have to be removed.

    Are you familiar with the Asus Zenfone 3 Laser (Z01BDC)? It requires microscopic star screw drivers and tiny tools to pop open the back. So I have not been able to take the battery out. I am still having this issue. Majority of texts are sent & received but at least a few messages each week do not. The only way I find out is when someone tells me I never responded to their text or if they do not respond to mine.

SOURCE: my sciphone I68 does not send messages the sms

I do believe I may be of assistance and I hope this will do it for you.

This same thing happened to my Blackberry when I changed phones and SIMS

I believe you need to make a call to your service provider and have them activate that feature on their end.

I have helped many customers with this problem by simply checking a box once I pulled up their account.

I also sometimes would call customer care have them review the account and the would say let me activate that feature for you.

It is just a matter of who ever signed you up checked all the available feature boxes or not.

Give your service provider a call the will get it going for you easy.

you make have to power your phone off an on for phone to update.

hope this helps.. please take the time to give me a rating if you appreciate my answer.

Why I can't send or receive photos with sms?


I have to go to Gallery, go to the photo I want to send, select Share, then select the Messaging app. On my Messaging app there isn't a way from selecting a photo.
For receiving photos, see if they are automatically put in your folder, like contact info is put directly in your contacts list without even opening the message - and if you did open it, it would show a blank message.

I cannot not receive multimedia messages on my cell phone


Most commonly you have to contact your service provider to ensure you are set up to receive SMS messages and that you have a corresponding messaging plan.
Also, depending on phone brand and model there are options to turn SMS/MMS on and off.
For example, the iPhone has the option to not receive MMS (Multimedia Messages) so that for people who don't have unlimited plans they can opt-out of potentially incurring charges.
