GSM mode I just bought this phone and to text you have to be in gsm mode. When i switch it to it i cannot get service anywhere. The only way I can get service is to switch it to "last active". It wont let me text in that mode but i can make and recieve calls. What is wrong?

First of all, what service do you use? I'd assume you are using Nextel, which is iden. For this reason, setting it to gsm doesn't work. iden was apparently the last setting used, so "last active" also works. Motorola, for some unknown reason, decided not to allow Nextel users to text message.

There are two ways around this.
1. One is to send a multimedia message with only text (no pictures, sounds, etc). This should be treated as a text message.
2. The other way is to follow this guide, which should allow you to change the registry on your phone and get rid of the message. Note that the first posters made the guide for telus users, so be sure to use the nextel sms number (found later in the thread, I believe).

My nokia phone isn't working well,i've had a hard time sending text messages,i think its not on my network because the sim card that i use in my nokia phone was the same sim that i use on my other...


Hi!

We are still not sure that it is your handset, If you are using two different phones with two different network mode, that could be the problem. If your phone (able to send messages) is using 2G (GSM) signal, that's fine. And your other phone is using 3G-3.5G (UMTS) signal and you are not able to make a call or even send text messages, then, that could be it, you have to switch its network mode to 2G (or GSM mode) because with 3G, the more mobile uses the signal, the lesser the coverage.

Cheers!

When I send a text, it sends but stays in the outbox and constantly resends the same message, how can I fix this?


Hi,

For that issue, if you have to dual connectivity selection (GSM and UMTS) make sure to select the dual mode or if you are on UMTS mode or 3G switch it to GSM mode and vise versa.

Please rate! Thanks!

My htc will not send text messages i have taken it to the telstra shop and have had the sim card replaced but nothing has worked . when i try send the message an error message comes up how do i fix this?...


It may be an error with your carrier's high speed data network. Try the following:
Go to MENU>SETTINGS>WIRELESS&NETWORKS>MOBILE NETWORKS>NETWORK MODE
Then change the settings from GSM / WCDMA auto to GSM only. Note that these two options may be different because different carriers helpfully call their various features different things. Basically take the phone off the "auto" mode and set it to use the slowest network setting possible (in my case GSM). You should notice your signal bars increasing immediately. This should also allow you to send texts etc normally. If the problem persists then as ever, take it back to the shop and tell then about your problem again.

I havin nokia e71 and its not showing my network lines ... i cant call n incoming is not also coming...


Only thing I can think of.. is that maybe the phone is set to use UMTS only and not GSM?

Try looking under:

Menu / Tools / Settings / Phone / Network

And see if the option for Network Mode is set to GSM or UMTS or Dual Mode.

If it is set on UMTS try changing it to GSM and see if it will then connect to the network. The Dual Mode option should allow it to switch between the two automatically. I prefer setting my phone to GSM as it will help save on battery power.

Phone will not send texts keeps comming up text stopped. what is wrong . No matter what I try it just wont send any texts. It begins to and than stops.


Call the service provider. Text messaging does not require specific server settings, so it could be an issue with the account. Give that a try, also if you have an option for GSM or GPRS, use GSM switched SMS sending. Still though, if this has just happened, I would contact the carrier.

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.
