Where did you buy your celphone? if your network is GLOBE telecom but your celphone is not "open line" (meaning it is locked just for one network) you really cannot use that to call nor text using your current network provider. since you are in the philippines, its so easy to ask anywhere there (celphone technicians) if your celphone is open line or not, and if its not, then just ask them to fix it. believe me, they can do that easily as 1-2-3.

    As stated in my original query, I can call and send text messages fine. It's only receiving texts that's the problem. I don't think "open line" is the problem here. But your point regarding the freelance cellphone technicians is well taken.

    Thanks.

Phone Cannot Send or Receive Calls and Text Messages: A Simple Electronic Glitch


It is frustrating when only your phone cannot send text messages no matter how strong the network signal is. Sometimes you feel nobody cares about or remembers you because nobody calls or texts you but actually there are. Your phone just can't be reached or can't receive text messages. When these happen, turn off the phone; remove the battery and then the SIM card. Insert the SIM card to another phone and try sending text messages; if you still cannot send text messages, remove the SIM card and let it sit off the phone for at least fifteen minutes then insert it gain. You should be able to send text messages after that, but make sure you have credits.

The next thing you should look into is the phone. Make sure network signal is present then insert a known good SIM card in your phone and try sending text messages. Reset the phone if you still cannot send text messages, but back up important files and data, such as contacts, videos, images, and messages, before doing so.

One simple way to "reset" the phone is by removing the battery and letting it sit for at least fifteen minutes. Another way is by restoring the phone settings to factory settings. Simply navigate to settings then phone settings and select "restore to full factory settings" depending on the brand and model of the phone.

This tip is not intended to solve virus or firmware problems but rather to avoid unnecessary visit to the service center and save few bucks from a problem only caused by a simple electronic glitch. Check the network signal strength and your credits before jumping into any conclusion.

Solution of Problem (Cannot send sms)


I hope you can receive text sms. We have never come across sending and receiving text messages problems related to handset. If you can receive, then you can send them, except your messages settings. I don't understand when you say "Warid" anyway, if you haven't reset the phone to it's factory default, please do it now using the code 12345 (i hope you haven't changed it, if so, use your code). Go to settings > Restore factory > Ok and enter the code 12345 when you are prompted. Your phone will automatically restart after it is reset. Now try sending a text message once again. If this doesn't help, then follow the instructions below;
Go to Messaging > Options >settings > text message > message center (note the message center in use as soon as you open the "text message") then highlight the message center name which is in use, select it and check the center number (you'll need to refer to another sim card's message center with the same service operator). [also set "reply via..." as "no" and "delivery.." as "maximum..."] If it's different, then make the changes and save it. Now restart your phone and try sending the text message again. If the problem still persists, it's from the service provider, call the customer care of your network operator and tell them your problem, they'll help you fix it.

Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Cannot send/receive texts on sciphone i68


Hi, this is simple, there is what is called a message center number on every mobile phone that allows you to send and receive text messages. Since you can not send and receive text message, then it's either the message center number is not there or that you have a network problem from your service provider. Contact the customer service section of AT&T to make a complain about it and the problem will be resolve immediately..

Take care
