Hello,

I will advice you check you message settings, the problem might be from your message settings, guess it has been tempered with, you can call your phone network service provider to comfirm the messaging settings on your phone and reset it. Once that is done, it will fix the problem.

Take care.

My phone is sending every text message that I send out through SMS and it splits up my text message on the other end how do I stop this


SMS stands for SMALL Message System.

If you texts are as long as emails, they will be broken up. Long messages should go via email. Contact your carrier to ask what their character limit is on SMS. It should be 160 max.
160 characters Sending email to SMS is free for the sender, but the recipient is subject to the standard delivery charges. Only the first 160 characters of an email message can be delivered to a phone, and only 160 characters can be sent from a phone. Text-enabled fixed-line handsets are required to receive messages in text format.

Why text messages are limited to 160 characters

I cant send or receive pictures through my sms


SMS stands for short message service. Simply put, it is a method of communication that sends text between cell phones, or from a PC or handheld to a cell phone. The "short" part refers to the maximum size of the text messages: 160 characters (letters, numbers or symbols in the Latin alphabet). For other alphabets, such as Chinese, the maximum SMS size is 70 characters.

My mms messages do not send on my curve 8520, they try to send for a long time then show it failed to send, i tried sending to myself and that did not work


This could only be caused by a couple of things. The message center number in the handset may not be correct, which will cause the messages to fail. The other possibility is that the feature is not active on your account with your wireless provider. What you need to do is test a couple of things. See if you can send a text/sms message to yourself, in doing this you can verify that you can not only send, but receive text/sms messages. If you cannot send, or receive text/sms messages, then that verifies that the message/service center number is off, and will need to be corrected. If that works, and you can receive text/sms messages, then your service center number is correct, and you will move to the next troubleshooting step, which is to test your web browser. If you cannot launch the web browser on your handset, then this is an issue, because the MMS service requires that you have both SMS, and web browser service to send a MMS message. If you can access the internet and you have the ability to send/receive text/sms, then you need to call your service provider as the issue may be with their service.

Cant receive sms from other sevice providers i.e MTN & Cell C can only receive from Vodacom who is my current service provider. Please send me SMS settings for NOKIA 5230


There are no settings for receiving SMS from any networks but if you want to send SMS , then the MESSAGE CENTRE NUMBER must be entered into the menu in the message settings.
This number should be given to you by the service provider you are using. SO call up your provider-Vodacom- to confirm the message centre number.

Incomming sms is not received in nokia 6030


Hi
there are only settings on the phone that will stop sending of messages, settings will not stop the receiving of messages (unless their mms - picture messages). I would suggest you speak to your network as it maybe something on your account at their end that needs fixing?
Incoming mesages (sms) are directed at your mobile number so the phone will receive them as you do a call.
Let us know how you get on?

I can't receive and send a message by using pc suite


hello there!! thanks for using Fixya.com!

I guess these requirements will help you...

Requirements
To send and receive SMS messages via a mobile phone using a Windows PC, you need:
  • a mobile phone that can be connected to your PC (some mobile phones do not have an interface for connecting to a PC)
  • a Windows program that can control the mobile phone to send and receive SMS messages
Today, most mobile phones support at least one of the following options to connect to a PC:
  • Via infrared (IrDA)
  • Via Bluetooth
  • Via a USB cable
  • Via a serial cable
The infrared and Bluetooth option should be very useful to many notebook computer users since nowadays many notebook computers have built-in infrared or Bluetooth support.
The Windows program for sending and receiving SMS messages is provided by some mobile phone manufacturers. For example, Nokia offers a software package called Nokia PC Suite to their mobile phone users. It can be downloaded free of charge from Nokia's web site. Microsoft has also released a free program called SMS Sender that enables Windows users to send SMS messages via a GSM mobile phone from a PC.
In the following sections, we will explain how to use Microsoft SMS Sender to send SMS messages on your Windows PC.

Hope this will help you..have a nice day! Or try to reinstall the CD (pc suite) on your laptop or pc, this will make it very helpful as well.
