T-mobile Dash Text Messages-WON'T SEND!!!

Hello,
So I have a T-mobile Dash (HTC Excalibur) and everything is working well. I can call people and receive calls, and the WiFi works great. It can also receive text messages. However, whenever I try to send a text message, it says the following: "The following errors occured while sending and receiving messages: Your text message cannot be sent."

I have no idea why it is doing this, b/c when I pull out the sim card, the same account can send texts with no problem on a razr. I have unlimited text messages, so this doesn't make sense.

Thank you for helping solve my problem.

    Same problem here... I even tried deleting a song to free up room on my memory, and it still won't send.

    What I had to do was save them to drafts, then move them to the outbox. They will send that way. I'm still going to try to fix it somehow...

    You think that's bad? Try logging in to the TMobile web site and sending a Text message to ANY TMobile subscriber. That NEVER works either. But, you WILL get billed for it anyhow.

See if this helps, go to ''settings'', then ''connections'', then ''more'' and click on ''SMS service'' and change it to "GPRS Preferred'', and see if that works

Cold reset the phone. I had same problem and by holding the two dash buttons at the top while powering the unit on.  You might lose some data on the phone but it was the only thing that worked for me.

My dash works perfectly fine.
i like it.

I was having the same problem with my Dash. It turned out that the memory was almost completely full. I uploaded all the pictures I had on it to my computer and deleted them from the Dash. That freed up about half it's memory (I'm just using the internal memory on it), and now it will let me send texts again.

Hi I had the same problem too, let this just be a warning to a whole list of problems the dash will cause you.

I had to take the phone in and have them reset it.

Why i can get text or video messages?


hi there,
call the customer service of your service provider ( AT&T,Vodafone,Verizon etc)....they will set up message center number on your phone(for text messages) and ask for mms settings for video messages, the one that you have might be incorrect...your mobile operator will send you sim updates that will refresh the settings ....and then you will get the text message and video message options
cheers

First you need to get into your phones setting, then touch the pannel for text messages and click get settings.

After you are in your settings there will be a pannel to put in your voice mail and text message number.

Windows Mobile 6 Won't Boot


bigsphinx, I too am having the exact same problem on both my phone and my wife's too, about once a month it just locks up then after a soft reset it just gets stuck on the green screen. I called support and they said I just have to do a hard reset, which loses everything :(

So for now I always backup (using PIMBackup) to my SD card for the next time it happens.

There is not a way to chnage the ROM from T-Mobile to AT&T as far as I know, but you should be able to call AT&T and have them send you Text Messaging settings over the air.
