Question about Motorola Mobility Q Smartphone

2 Answers

SMS messages My Q will receive text messages but will not send them. When trying to send, it says, "error, text message cannot be sent." I read on another post where it has something to do with the memory, but I put in the memory card and it still gives me the same error message.

Re: SMS messages

Hi when you say what is ment by multipull networks, this usually means that the phone can take different network.
Also with you message problem you will need to ring your service provider and ask for the message senter number they will give you this over the phone.
Also you can ask them if they will send you the settings for your phone via a text message you can do this on most networks and this will update all your settings hopefully solving your problem.
I will look for your message center number and also see if i can find the right settings for your phone and if i find them i will talk you through what you need to do.
Let me know how you get on ok speak soon.
Hope this is some help to you i will continue to look for your settings and number you need if i find them i will post message here for you ok.

Re: SMS messages

Dear jmoore, first of all i would like to check you message settings. There are multiple parts in it. check your message center number. if you dont know it ask you service provider. You also have to put reply via same server to 'NO'. I assume you are in proper service area.

You might also like to get your hardware checked for any signal problems with your cellphone. You can also try to send it on multiple networks to see if it works. And if it does on some networks then it means theres nothing wrong with your cellphone. Recipient inbox could be full. You should also delete all the pending messages from your outbox to solve the problem.
It that doesnt work there is no way except taking the phone to your nearest cellphone shop.

If that has helped you please press 'fixya'

Can't receive any text messages on my Samsung


Please try clearing some of the messages stored in your Inbox and Sent Items as well. This could be preventing new messages from coming in because the memory is full.

hi there,
call the customer service of your service provider ( AT&T,Vodafone,Verizon etc)....they will set up message center number on your phone , the one that you have might be incorrect...your mobile operator will send you sim updates that will refresh the settings ....and then you will get the text message options

I can not send SMS message. SMS Message Center Number Error

I had the same problem and came to this site for help but the solutions didn't solve the problem of "cannot send text message" on htc touch hd. All service numbers correct. Went to START/SETTINGS/CONNECTIONS/ADVANCED NETWORK/SMS SERVICE then changed from "gprs" to "gprs preferred". Double checked and had reverted to "GSM" but sms now works - finally!!! Hope this helps.

Text messages wont send, delete, or change status

I think your mobile is affected by virus. I suggest you to format your memory card and flash your phone. Dont use the backup you have taken other than the contacts. Load other things manually and frehly. hope this helps.!!

I have been having the same problem with my P3300. I finally found a solution that worked for me. Here are the steps.

Go to:
Start menu

Then set SMS over: to gsm preferred

I was then able to send and receive sms with no problem.
I hope this helps out. Post back and let me know if this worked for you.

Sms text messages

Just Try either of the following ....

Try checking the SMSC (Message Center Number) number configured on your phone. If the Message Centre number is not configured or wrong then you will not be able to send..but you can receive.
Check... is there any setting called Inbox Setup in Message menu, then Text msg Setup -> Use GPRS -> NO

All the Best.
