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.

Always sending failed

Does the phone has a signal bar? If it can make or receive a call?

*****If it is with good signal and can make a call. It is not the phone's problem.

2. Many cell phones can only work with GSM network. Please make sure that you are not using a 3G SIM card.
Click to check your SIM frequency: or call your provider to confirm it.

*****After these actions, pls try the following instructions. It is only need to do some setting to get SMS.

**Turn on the phone, "setting"→"Restore factory settings" →enter the password:you'll find it on your user manual.
**Call your provider to get a SMS service center number for filling SMS setting. (you may get the number by searching it on the carrier's wesite)
NOTE: you might have to enter the number as +1(XXX)XXX-XXXX for gsm.
For instance, (+12063130004) should be +1(206)313-0004 (this is for T-mobile)

Help me

The code that the phone is looking for is the phone's security code. Check under SMS settings if your service centre number is valid. Try sending an sms from another service provider's sim, or a different one from the same service provider. if all else fails, contact your service provider and ask them for the sms service centre number which you need to key into the phone
