Not recieving text messages - Cell Phones

Posted by on

  • brie4490 Jun 07, 2008

    My Sony Ericsson w580i doesn't send or receive texts. I was trying to send a text message and it wouldn't send and saved the message to my outbox. In this state, my phone also does not receive text messages. I assumed that I lost service and ignored the problem for a few hours. Later, when I turned my phone off and on again, however, the problem seemed to be fixed. I could then send messages and received several text messages that I apparently missed as my phone was malfunctioning.



    This problem has become increasingly common, and is to the point that I have to turn my phone off and on nearly every time I would like to send or receive text messages. This is an extremely frustrating problem, as I won't receive messages for hours and, when I restart my phone, will receive many at once that I should have received hours ago.



    Any ideas on what I can do to fix this?

Why can't I recieve text messages from other cell phones?


I had this problem once with another cell and I found out that some of the text messages from other phones, like the LG and PDA phones send with kilobytes that are needed to be "downloaded" through a multi-media package or internet access. If you are able to send texts and they receive them, check with your carrier.
Also, try shutting the phone off and restarting.

Let me know if this helps.

I can send my text messages but i can't recieved any text messages in all networks


Check Your Message Centre Number With Your Network Provider.The Number Will Be In The Messages Menu In Message Settings And Then Text Message Settings.It May Be Different On Your Phone But Similar.
You May Have Accidently Changed Something.
I Would Also Check That Ypu Havnt Disabled Recieving Text Messages.

Maybe This Helps You,I Hope So.
