I cannot send any SMS using my Nokia 6288

When i woke up this morning, i tried to send an SMS to a friend, but i failed. i checked the Message setting in my Nokia 6288 and it's written there as "Pending". i tried again to send to another friends and i just can't. Even the message sending icon on the screen is not moving as usual. this pproblem used to happen to me once couple of months ago and i went to the repair outlet to have my phone system re-set. could u please tell me how to re-set my phone so that i can do it on my own every time this problem happen?

waleedbasham ,
please try to go to messaging>options>settings>text message
1) make sure you have a defined message center for your present sim network 2) check preferred connection, must be gsm/3g
for item 1, the message center should contain a number : country code+your mobile network prefix

Nokia 1112 cannot send text messages but can receive


You cannot send messages because the message centre number stored in your mobile may be wrong.

Please enter the correct message centre number. To get the correct message centre number please call your service provider and they will provide you the number.

Menu > Messaging >Options >Settings > Text message >Message centres

Thank You

for sending text messages :
1.go to your message settings and check the message center number to see if it is correct
2. call to your network operator customer care
3. request the message center number...
4.note it down
5. go to message settings>message center number
6. insert the number which is noted by you and save it
this solves your messaging problem ...
Good luck

I can recieve text messages but when i try to send them it says message failed

It is because, you are not using the right SMS center no. Collect it from your service operator. Previously, you might be using other operator's sim. Now you just go to your messge settings and then go to text message, then select the right "message center number in use" and save it and start sending SMS again.

Cant send sms on nokia 2688

Do you want to sent mms/sms. for sending mms you need to suscribe from your operator and save mms settings on your mobile.
For sms check your message center number with your network provider and input the number in your message setting option.
