Dear, you just need to contact your service provider (SIM service provider) or you can also make a try by reinserting the SIM card.

Any text message i send goes to the out box and is either resending (to no avail) or listed as failed. I got the phone 3 days ago. It is a work phone with telstra. Nokia C%


The problem might be with "Message Center Number" which is different for different service providers.

You should call you service provider "Telstra" and ask them that number. You can then enter it in your mobile as mentioned below.

(Please rate the solution if helpful, Thank you)

Press "Menu"
Scroll to Messaging, press "Open"
Press "Options", scroll to Settings, press "Select"
Scroll to Text message, press "Open"
Scroll to Message centres, press "Open"
Scroll to SIM message centre, press "Open"
Scroll to Message centre name, press "Change"
Enter (your provider's name), press "OK"
Scroll to Message centre number, press "Change"
Enter (number provided), press "OK"
Press "Back" twice
Scroll to Message centre in use, press "Change"
Scroll to (provider's name you entered), press "OK".

Problems sending or receiving SMS may be caused by no or incorrect SMS settings. To set up your phone to use SMS, you need a message centre number, which is provided by your network operator. This is often set up automatically when inserting a new SIM card to a phone. Whiteout the message centre number, you are not able to send or receive SMS.

To edit the service centre number:

  1. Select Menu > Settings > Connectivity >Message settings.
  2. Select Text message.
  3. Highlight Service centre and select Edit.
  4. Highlight a service centre number and selectOptions > Edit > Continue.
  5. Enter the service centre number and selectSave > Yes.
  6. Highlight the service centre number and selectSelect to use the defined service centre number.

To add a service centre number provided by your network operator:

  1. Select Menu > Settings > Connectivity >Message settings.
  2. Select Text message.
  3. Highlight Service centre and select Edit.
  4. Select Add to add a new service centre number.
  5. Enter the service centre number and selectSave.
  6. Highlight the service centre number and selectSelect to use the defined service centre number.
This should help you.
any further questions feel free to ask.
Thanks.

Cant send texts but can recieve them


This is almost certainly a problem with your phone not having the correct Message Centre settings (have you ever used this phone with a different carrier?).

The Message Centre number can be found in Messaging/Settings/Text Message/Text Message Centre. You will probably need to check with your Service Provider to get the correct number, although you may find it on their website.
