    I have an iphone that errors every time I try to send a text. I can receive texts just fine and all other functions on the phone work but not sending texts. I haven't even had the phone 24 hours and I've been getting bounced around from Apple to AT&T but no one can seem to help me. I've spent more time on the phone trying to get some help, than I have actually using the phone. I am beyond frustrated. AT&T tells me it's a bad phone and to go to Apple. Apple tells me it's a service issue and to go to AT&T. Hows THAT for customer service?

You need to call your carrier to get your assigned message center number, write this information down. Now in order to change the Message Center Number on your phone you will need to go into your Network Settings, the message center number is usually near the forwarding number (for voicemail.)

Device is a ZTE Grand X Max cell phone with cricket wireless Unable to send text messages. Able to send pic without text Able to receive text message Error code reads 111


best will be to set the message centre number over again from the message settings............look for the sim pack manual for the message centre number.

To make it easy you can insert the sim in a nomal phone (not a smart phone)
go to the message settings and make the changes from there.
re-insert the sim back in your smartphone and try sending messages again.

Another option
enter *#*#4636#*#*
should display a "Testing Menu"

Choose phone information and scroll till you find "SMSC" section
click on "refresh" and if it gives an error then you will have to enter the message centre number in an international format and click on "update"
Note that sometimes the message number can be in a code form and that will need to be converted before entering that code read more here SMSC Updates CyanogenMod )

Please do let me know the outcome.

Unable to send text messages on my new nokia 5800


All you have to do is go to your message setting on your phone:
1. Open Messaging
2. On New message sellect options at bottom
3. Open settings
4. Open Text message, you should see: Message centre, message centre in use ect..
5. Open message centres this should go to next screen then open again, this screen should have : Message centre name & Message centre number (from your network provider you need to find out what is the message centres name & number are e.g in Australia it should be SMSC1 and number is +61411990001) then just manually enter these in there.

Error message when texting on Ericsson K750i mobile


tmuncey hello,

Sometimes because of a phone bug or a SIM error, the "Service Centre" for SMS messages is changed.
Please call your cellular Service Provider, and ask for their SMS Service Centre settings.
Then, go to Messages > Settings > Text Message > Service Centre.
Make sure the number you were given by the Service Provider matches the one written there.
If not, please changed to the one given to you by the Service Provider.
