Can't Send Text Messages on Samsung Muse from Alltel (prepaid). It says

Hi! I have a Samsung Muse from Alltel (prepaid) and when I try to send a text message, it acts like it's sending it, then gives me a "Connection Error" message.

Please help? I don't want to have to take it back to the Alltel store to be looked at. ~.~

I have plenty of minutes and full bar signal, and it still gives me the "Connection Error" message.

When I tried to send a picture message of my cat to a friend, it did the same thing, except in the message it said "Service not activated"

And the guy at Alltel activated it there for me. :[

Please help me! I got this phone yesterday!

Is there a way to send my text messages to my email


First you have to save your email info in your Contact List.

You should be able to send a text to your email.

You can also send a text from your email to your phone, but you would have to ask what the correct format is for the address.
Through Alltel it is xxx-xxxx@message.alltel.com

hope this works for you!!!

Cannot send out text 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 , 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 options
cheers

Unable to send text messages


Generally if the phone is giving a "cannot send" or "message failed" error message then there is something wrong with the "switch" In order to fix this you need to contact your providers tech support and they should be able to fix the issue...

You can also try sending the picture to your own number... sometimes that will help push it through the switch...

Also make sure that you are using the area code of the numbers that you are sending it to...

Alltel for example, will not let the message go through if the area code is not inserted

Change carrier


You can use it on Alltel but until the Verizon/Alltel merger is complete you would only be able to send and receive text messages and make and receive phone calls. You would NOT be able to access any program that requires the internet and you would not be able to send or receive picture messages.

The easiest way to do this is after you add the ESN to you account is to dial *22801 and press send. It should say welcome to Alltel and then all you have to do is press 3 to program your phone and after that is successful you need to Dial *22801 again then press 2 to update your PRL and viola you phone will now be able to talk and text on your Alltel account
