My problem began about a week ago and I wasn't aware until my friend
asked me why I was sending picture messages with no pictures. I
wasn't, I was sending regular text. I went in and looked at my
outgoing messages and they were all sent as multimedia or slideshow.
Problem is I never attacted anything to them and most were replies
anyway. My question is: what is happening and how can I fix this so
that they're just regular text messages?

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
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.
solution is (depending on your phone model and carrier of course) break up longer messages before 160 characters are reached. Otherwise, send an emoticon face as the picture. Your friends and family will get a kick out of it.
Once you dump a picture inside a text message that becomes picture message or mms. Hence, you can't directly send the mms through your mobile without getting settings from your service provider call your service provider and ask them to send mms settings to you and then you can send picture messages. Caution mms messages are costlier than text messages.
Ok, ask the person you are trying to send the picture to if they pay to recieve picture messaging or if it is just text messages. Unless they have a service provider like cricket then the text and picture messages have to be paid for seperatly. Like with sprint/nextel text is .10 cents and pictures are .25 cents. It depends on their provider.
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..................
I had this same problem and called Motorola for support. The solution is to clear text/mms message inbox and outbox. The default setting on my phone was to never clear the inbox but I changed that to remove messages when they are 10 days old, I have not experienced the problem since.
