Your cell phone may be locked to a particular cell phone provider and in this case it needs to be unlocked to use with a different cell phone service provider. To get the security code/restriction code to unlock the cell phone from the current cell phone provider so you can use the SIM card with a different phone provider, Please click on this link and follow my instructions :- If your phone provider does not help you then these WEB sites it provides security codes for a small price.

To increase your chances of recovery TRY NOT TO SEND/ADD ANY MORE MESSAGES PHONE NUMBERS once you have realized you deleted a message or number.

If you wish to recover accidentally deleted text messages, contact numbers, call logs or other details from your mobile phones Sim Card then you are going to need to download a good Sim card data recovery program. That is How To Read Deleted Text Messages:

You will require USB sim card reader (any PC/SC Standards or Phoenix Standards based USB Sim Reader) to use the software and successfully recover data (contact numbers and text SMS) from the Sim card of your mobile phone

To use the software you simply connect your USB Card to the computer load up Sim card data recovery and it will allow you to view information including contacts numbers, and deleted SMS text messages along with the date and sending time of the message in simple report format.

Sounds like the message center number might have been changed or erased on the phone. You'll have to call customer service for your wireless carrier to get the message center number for the phone.

This has also happened to me while i was on holiday they have taken £12 i think the best way to stop this is to change your number. I am going to ring o2 and complain and see if they can re-credit my balance.
