Unable to send or receive pic or text message

For about two days I have been unable to send or receive pic or text messages, when I enter the screen to send a text it kicks me right back out to the main menu.I can only enter the screen successfully after I have had my phones power turned off for some time and when I push send the screen freezes.I thought about resetting my phone but I have no idea what the master reset code is(the six zeros aren't working) so I'm wondering if I just need to trade this thing in for a new model...thank you

Re: unable to send or receive pic or text message

Is this an unlocked phone from another carrier? If so you need to call AT&T to download mms messaging, and Medianet so u can download games and such. Another thing to mention is, if it is from another carrier you may not be able to get games. My razr was from Cingular, I cracked the simlock (cingular refused to give me the key, none the less), cost me $10. I called my carrier (T-mobile) and they were more than happy to send the links to get my txt and web working. The only thing I can't get is games. Backgrounds and Ringtones download fine. Sorry, am babbling, Call your carrier, and I am sure they will send you the links to download txt and medianet. I looked on their site and can't find the links to help you.

Device is a ZTE Grand X Max cell phone with cricket wireless Unable to send text messages. Able to send pic without text Able to receive text message Error code reads 111

best will be to set the message centre number over again from the message settings............look for the sim pack manual for the message centre number.

To make it easy you can insert the sim in a nomal phone (not a smart phone)
go to the message settings and make the changes from there.
re-insert the sim back in your smartphone and try sending messages again.

Another option
enter *#*#4636#*#*
should display a "Testing Menu"

Choose phone information and scroll till you find "SMSC" section
click on "refresh" and if it gives an error then you will have to enter the message centre number in an international format and click on "update"
Note that sometimes the message number can be in a code form and that will need to be converted before entering that code read more here SMSC Updates CyanogenMod )

Please do let me know the outcome.

I can't send an MMS or pic on my straight talk ZTE Majesty cell phone

If you do not have at least 2 steady bars of reception strength, text messages or pic messages could fail sometimes. If these fail no matter what signal strength, you should contact your phone provider (StraightTalk).
