Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Cannot 'SEND' text messages.

Replaced my SIM about four weeks ago, as the old one had become faulty. Initially, the functions were fine; except I'd not yet activated MMS, (using my laptop, I've been going online to access any pictures/videos received.) On activating GPRS - thinking it would open up my mobiles MMS facility - somehow, I seem to have deactivated outgoing SMS's; whatsmore, I still don't have MMS. When I 'SEND,' I'm informed 'UNABLE TO SEND, IN OUTBOX TO TRY AGAIN LATER;' where, it lingers for a lengthy duration, indicating 'SENDING IN PROGRESS,' (though, it most certainly is not) before changing to 'SENDING FAILED, STATUS: 254.' I have attempted to correct the situation online, via my carrier, (Optus) by activating WAP ...... I'm forwarded two text-messages, informing me that:

  1. In the following text, I'm to receive 'HANDSET SETTINGS FOR DATA SERVICE(S);' which, I'm to 'SAVE and/or ACTIVATE;' however, when that text,
  2. (a browser message then arrives) indicating that I require an 'UPDATE!'

As i think the MESSAGE CENTER NUMBER you must change by asking your network operator ...
1. call to customer care of ur network operator
2. ask for the message center number..
3. store it in it by going to message settings and message center number ..
then try your sms will start going..................

My nokia 6790 wont send text messages what do i do

my phone has had this problem 5 times since i got it a year ago.. it would do everything except send texts, so i kept sending it to get fixed. i just got it back about a week ago after they finally "REPLACED" it, and its not sending texts again, BUT they'll send if the text is in a MMS format (multimedia)... i think your best bet is to chuck the phone and get a different one.

SMS sending error!

if its a new phone / sim then you might need sms / wap settings sent from your service provider to set the sms message centre number in your phone etc.

Alternatively some SP's require you to call them and register a payg phone to enable full functionality, call your customer service line and explain, they will fix it right away.
