It has to do with the "SMS Message Center", it is a certain number which should be provided by your service provider, after having known what it is, go to menu>messaging>message setting>text messages>message centers> then you will see the list of message centers you pick one or add one if nothing existed, then you edit the name field then the number field (which will be provided by your service provider) then save settings, after going back one step i.e to the menu of "text messages" choose the option of "message center in use" then make sure you have chosen the correct choice which you made and/or edited one step earlier then you save settings, then try to send yourself an SMS, if you have received it successfully then you have done it write!
Note: if you are not able to contact your service provider (mobile service company), you can check the needed number through another phone settings which is having sim card from the same service provider.. let us know what happens with you, TC

My phone stopped sending sms's but i can receive them.

Check if your SMS center number is correct. The righ SMS center number can be obtained from your service provider. SMS center is usually located under Message Settings.

If correct, restore the phone to it's factory settings.

Select Menu > Settings and Phone > Phone Management > Factory settings.

Hope this helps.

My nokia 5230 wont send text

In order to be able to send text sms's you are required to complete the settings in your sms options. You shall call the customer care and ask them for providing you the settings. Once they will give you the gateway i.e. one phone number you can enter that number in your sms settings options and you will be able to send text messages.

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.
