Question about Samsung SGH-d807 Cellular Phone
Lately I've been getting the following error "1121611611 - Error Invalid Number. Please re-send using a valid 10 digit mobile number or valid short code. .... (and then it lists the actual text that I attempted to send)
So then I go back in a re-send using a 10 digit number and I get the same message. What am I doing wrong?
Simply put a 1 in front of the ten digit number and it will stop....this works, I sell phones and have had customers come in with this problem and I solve it everytime...

I've seen many answers for this one, but none appear to address the root cause of the problem and some are downright dangerous!
Adding a 1 or any additional characters to complete the send is NOT a good idea! From what I've read, few know who the number belongs to and where it's ultimately going. Should it go through, how can you know what is being collected on the other end?!?!
It may sound paranoid, but these days it does not take much for identity theft and whatever else they can get out of your phone once they have an acknowledgement that it exists. Don't do it.
You have to find the source of the message and kill it.
*** The trick is that you may not see it in your contacts list so do the following *******
1. On my phone, a Samsung Galaxy III (SGH-T999), I went to my text section and tapped on one of those repeated 111.... messages.
2. On the top of the screen i saw a number...just a number. pressed on the number with the arrow pointing left (< ) which got me to the contact.
Here's the deal, the contact was listed like this: **a_company_name** ...weird huh?!?
Since i never entered ANY addy with asterisk I don't know how it got there .......another reason you should NOT just try and get it to go through!
a) I may have been able to use the phone's options pull-up menu on bottom left of screen to delete, but I can't recall if it was available to me at that time ....if it is for you, go ahead and delete the contact. (I'm assuming that no "real" entity has this number set.)
b) If only the EDIT option is available to you, edit to remove any "weird" characters, like the " ** " that was in front of and behind the name I saw. This may have been why I could not see it in the contact list.
-get out of messages
c) Go to contacts and look for it...it MAY not even show up in the list, you may have to actually type it before it can be seen as I had to .
d) Once the contact is located, delete it....
e) go back to messages and delete those too.
I did this about an hour ago and no messages since. I shold have had a bunch by now.
Hope this worked for you!
PS. Paranoia is a good thing these days.
Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean that they're NOT out to get you ;)

Are you using a tmobile phone on the cingular network?

Both phones need reflashing also try entering the area code first (246-2220000)

Sounds like you do need to enter the area code first.
