I cant send text messages....... I have been sending messages untill 17sep..The moment I press [send] the screen goes black and re-switches on again.I can receive text messages. I can send picture messages...

Switch the phone off. Press and hold three keys together, the green key, the * key and the number '3'. While you are holding these keys, switch the phone on. Don't release these three keys before you see the Nokia logo. or dial *#7370# . This will delete the memory of your phone. Remove first your memory card.

And also there is an option called as reply via same message centre please put this to 'NO'. now you can send messages

To go to this options please check follow these steps.... 'menu' 'messages'
3.Go to 'message settings' that open 'text message'
5.there is an option called as 'message centre',please entre your new message centre number and save it. set this as your message centre
6.Check the option 'reply via same centre' and please put it to 'NO'

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.
