If you already done those trouble shooting and thus it doent respond to your expected outcome. maybe the problem was in your signal from your phone.

    try this:
    soft reset: *#7370#
    hard reset/format: *3
    restore factory setting: *#7780#

Unable to send message in my nokia N71.. how to fix this??

Please try by restoring your factory. Menu>Setting>Restore factory setting. or press this code *#7780# and if you want to format it than try this code *#7370#
else please check your message center number from your friend or family that they are using the same service(s) like vodafone, aircel, bsnl, airtel. from there check their message centre number whether it's the same number or not that's in your cell-phone. If it's not same than correct it and try.

Thanks for using FixYa

My nokia n97 cannot send text messages at all. Message centre is correct and all other txt/messaging settings are correct but i still can't send text they remain in my outbox resending every three...

Remove your SIM card and try it on other hand-set or mobile and see whether it happen again or not?
If it work on other hand-set or mobile then reset (restore factories) from your hand-set.

One month back i bought nokia time and again this message is appearing on screen that your phone memory is full.move the items from it. i have checked everything but not able to find how to empty...

the data that you receive by bluetooth gets stored in the phone memory...change that setting to memory card...or there may be number of messages in your msg folder...or just simply apply restore factory settings on the settings option and your phone will function properly

My phone stopped sending sms's but i can receive them.

Check if your SMS center number is correct. The righ SMS center number can be obtained from your service provider. SMS center is usually located under Message Settings.

If correct, restore the phone to it's factory settings.

Select Menu > Settings and Phone > Phone Management > Factory settings.

Hope this helps.

Probably a virus.. setting it back to factory settings will not work most of the time, got the same issue but on my older nokia 6600, try a hard reset.. press #7370#.. this will erase everything in your phone... contacts.. old messages..images.. i mean all.. back up first before doing this.. =)

have fun
