I have just purchased an LG Viewty from T-Mobile and I am having trouble sending text messages. I can receive them but not send them. For some reason there is not a number stored in the text message centre box but when I enter the number in there (given to me by T-Mobile) for some reason it doesn't store it and says Failed. This is now my 3rd phone from T-Mobile and no one seems to know why this problem is occuring.
Please can you help me,
Your quick response would be much appreciated.

Hi, this is simple, there is what is called a message center number on every mobile phone that allows you to send and receive text messages. Since you can not send and receive text message, then it's either the message center number is not there or that you have a network problem from your service provider. Contact the customer service section of AT&T to make a complain about it and the problem will be resolve immediately..
hi there, call the customer service of your service provider ( AT&T,Vodafone,Verizon etc)....they will set up multimedia message services on your sim..your mobile operator will send you sim updates that will refresh the settings ....and then you will get the picture message options cheers
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?
