Question about Nokia 2690 Cell Phone

1 Answer

When i receive text messages the time it says received is not the same on the setting of my time on my phone nokia 2690(i.e. Say my Son would send message at 2am in the morning to say he was leaving, I was asleep, would wake up look at phone to see what time it had come in it would say 9.23, so I would not know what time it arrived) Can be frustrating. It is not always the same amount of time difference either. Have reset the phone to factory settings and still does the same. What do you suggest. Only bought in January 2011 and seems to be getting worse. Linda

Nokia 2690 "message storage memory not ready" how to fix it? im not able to receive or send messages. need a solution ASAP

In this case! hope you have set or rename a message centre number.
Let me know which service are you using like Airtel, Aircel, Vodafone, and so on. So please take a family, friend cell phone which is using a similar service that you are using. Then compare your message centre no. and then check whether it's same or not as your message centre no. that you had set in your cell phone.
If it's not same replace it and see whether it's working or not?

Thanks for Using FixYa!

How to activate MMS


To get GPRS/MMS setting, you need to contact your service provider through phone or go directly to their office.

They will send you the settings for your model. You will receive service settings in the special text message called as smart message. Please save the settings to your phone and set it has default settings. Then you can start using the GPRS/MMS in your phone.

Thank You

Go to the phone menu, press messaging, press options, scroll down to settings and press it. Press Text Message, and you will see "Receive report", then press it to turn it on.

When Delivery report is enabled in your text message settings, each time you send a text message, a delivery report message will pop out.

Take care

I am unable to send texts

you may have to check your settings on the nokia- may not have text message 'up-loading'- 'sending' set up. your service may allow 'free' incoming- but not sending!
check your phone settings- may need to go on-line to alter your settings! or find info to set your phone!
good luck!

Text Messaging

That's a problem the Network Service Provider should be able to solve. I don't think it's your phone.
Remember to delete msgs, when you no longer need them. The phone only has a set amount of memory.
Phonebook 500 x 16 fields, Photocall
Call records 20 dialed, 20 received, 20 missed calls
Card slot microSD (TransFlash), up to 2GB, 64 MB card included - 6 MB internal memory
