Hi.


If problem just started, wait few hours. The server may be temporarily down, in that case the messages will be delayed.

Test using a different SIM card from provider supported by the phone. If the other SIM card works, then problem is SIM.

Go to message settings and check message center number, message center settings. Call the SIM provider to check the message settings are correct.

If problem is with picture messages, then you need to set the MMS. Call provider, they will follow you step-by-step. You may need to add MMS in settings>more>connection>Network profiles.

Most providers do not even need to instruct you in setting the phone. All you need to do is calling them and telling the phone model. A network message containing all settings will be sent to your phone and will install settings automatically.

If all that does not work, reset the phone to factory settings:

Have a LG Cookie 500 when I send a text get =cannot send/retrieve messages, just stoped sending I can recieve text! got new sim but still the same Please Help!


This can occur when you compose a message and then hit recipient and then enter the contacts name. The phone will say 'Sending' then 'Cannot send/retrieve messages'.If you enter the recipients NUMBER the transmission will work OK.

If you want to send a text to someone by NAME, select their name from the 'Contacts' list then hit the Message icon (envelope). Write the message then hit send...

LG KP500 COOKIE NOT LETTING ME SEND MESSAGES


Hi,
It seems that the message center number configured in your mobile for sending message is invalid or not yet configured. Contact your network customer care to know about the message center number or else you can copy it from any of your friend who is using the same network. Then enter that number into your message setting - > message center number. Then you can send messages as like other mobiles. I hope this solves your problem.

My lg cookie won't send messages


you need to check that the SMS centre number is stored in your phones SMS settings (you can get different mobile provider service number by searching the net) If you cant enter it, then get a different SIM card, the same provider as yours, put it in your cookie and send a message. Then put your SIm back in, and you should be able to send messages.

I had the same problem.
This is a bug.
You have to send it back. And you get a new lg cookie in return. Without any costs!
(but you have to call LG, for making that appointment)

Cant send texts but can recieve them


This is almost certainly a problem with your phone not having the correct Message Centre settings (have you ever used this phone with a different carrier?).

The Message Centre number can be found in Messaging/Settings/Text Message/Text Message Centre. You will probably need to check with your Service Provider to get the correct number, although you may find it on their website.

Sending text messages...


Hi julietdb,

This sometimes occurs when a SIM card has gone wrong.
Go to Messages, Settings, Text Message, Service Centre

Then, call your ISP, ask for the SMS Service center number.
Then, verify that it is the one written in the location I gave you.
If not, replace it with the number you were given.

In case it is - there's probably something wrong with the SIM card and it needs to be replaced.
