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

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...

    How do i fix this :(

    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.

Posted on Oct 19, 2008

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.

Posted on Oct 03, 2008

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.

Text messages are for text only. Pictures must be sent using Multimedia Message (MMS).

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.
