Nokia 5300 Wont Send Text Messages

This is my second Nokia 5300. Both phones stopped sending text messages after approx 60 days. I can receive text and send picture messages. I just cannot send text messages. T-Mobile did a warranty exchange on the first phone and now the second one is doing the same thing. The phone has not been dropped or abused in any way.

Nokia 1112 cannot send text messages but can receive


You cannot send messages because the message centre number stored in your mobile may be wrong.

Please enter the correct message centre number. To get the correct message centre number please call your service provider and they will provide you the number.

Menu > Messaging >Options >Settings > Text message >Message centres

Thank You

My Nokia E52 does not want to send my text messages, I can ring and and receive calls and receive text messages?

Check your message settings, there is a option called Message center number.If the number is incorrect you wont able to send messages while you can receive messages.This Message center number is provided by your service provider.Call your customer care for message center number and enter it to your phone and save in message center number box.Then you should send the messages.

Not sending sms txt on LG KS20 but can receive...please help

To fix this problem is you need to borrow/own a phone that is from your service provider that isn't touch or 3G phone. I used Nokia 5200 or Nokia 5300.. Same phones

Change the number for Voice mail.
(Your Cellphone Number) then put your Voice Mail # on your Text number where you receive your Text service SMS. Make sure both # has the +1 at the start.

Hope this help...
