Re: cannot send messages due to sms center
It is a message center number maybe you accidentally change it... call your networks customer service or borrow a phone the has thesame network w/ you and go to message, message setting, message center and copy its message center...

for sending text messages : 1.go to your message settings and check the message center number to see if it is correct 2. call to your network operator customer care 3. request the message center number... 4.note it down 5. go to message settings>message center number 6. insert the number which is noted by you and save it
the problem is the message centre numper might be wrong, just put a different sim and see whether messages are going, you can back up contacts and do a factory reset from settings if you cannot get sms center number right
I hope you can receive text sms. We have never come across sending and receiving text messages problems related to handset. If you can receive, then you can send them, except your messages settings. I don't understand when you say "Warid" anyway, if you haven't reset the phone to it's factory default, please do it now using the code 12345 (i hope you haven't changed it, if so, use your code). Go to settings > Restore factory > Ok and enter the code 12345 when you are prompted. Your phone will automatically restart after it is reset. Now try sending a text message once again. If this doesn't help, then follow the instructions below;
Go to Messaging > Options >settings > text message > message center (note the message center in use as soon as you open the "text message") then highlight the message center name which is in use, select it and check the center number (you'll need to refer to another sim card's message center with the same service operator).
[also set "reply via..." as "no" and "delivery.." as "maximum..."]
If it's different, then make the changes and save it. Now restart your phone and try sending the text message again. If the problem still persists, it's from the service provider, call the customer care of your network operator and tell them your problem, they'll help you fix it.
i have the same problem. then i try a suggestion from a blog. first make sure ur sms setting is correct.if it didnt work u need to reset ur phone. Well before you reset your phone to factory settings etc. try this out Go to messaging , options , settings and check the text message settings. Verify that the message centre no is the right one.
If you need to restore factory settings type *#7370# it will ask you for the lockcode default is 12345. but if u have changed ur locj code, please type ur own lock code. Before u reset ur phone it is better to take ur micro sd out.
Try the following steps. I fixed the same problem on my E71 with these.
1. move the sms which can not be sent into the draft box.
2. switch the phone to offline mode.
3. enter draft box, and send the sms
4. after the notification of "saving into sending box..", power off the phone.
5. turn on the phone again, select "no" for the question, then, wait several second, u can see the sms is sent.
save all your contacts to the memory card,take the memory card out,then format by keying*#7370#,then key in 12345 when asked for pass code,that would reset your phone,try sending the text again it would work
