On every phone there are settings that can stop you sending texts. However all phones should still receive texts even if all the settings were changed. As the text message is directed to you mobile number you should still be receiving?
When you compose your text and select contact does the phone move them to the out/sent box?
Settings to check for sending are your 'message centre number' (your network provider can supply and they are normally different for pay monthly and pay & go) 'Message sent as' should be 'text' (not fax or email etc).
Text problems are common where people change or delete digits from the message centre number by mistake.
If you cannot receive texts i would recommend speaking to your provider for help as it may be your account details at their end? (beyond your control). Hope that helps?

My LG Ally will send texts but it won't recieve them, it was working yesterday and then it just stopped. My mother has the same phone and it works perfectly. We have had these phones for less than a month.


You need to check with the service provider to see if you have this service. Some companies will allow you to use it then when they realize that you are not paying for the service, they stop it.

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...

I cannot send or recieve picture messages also I cannot send video mail but can recieve them


Your provider has to allow MMC to send/receive pictures or video. Normal SMS are not able to do that. I would check with your service provider and see what has changed.

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.

My lg cookie will not send or recieve messages but will make and recieve calls. Only got it today and am already pi****d with it!!


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)

Motorola razr unable to send multi media texts?


Most likely, your provider did not activate the text messaging for sending. The phone company has to activate the features to allow usage.
