When I send text messages I get charged by Orange for SMS receipts. I don't want this service but the only function on my Treo 680 is already set to MMS receipts "Never" and Orange say it has to be remedied on the handset
How can I stop this?

Re: SMS text receipts
In Nokia you can turn off receipts. You may need to get the manual out, but you do not have to have receipts, obviously a little money making scheme, like my voicemail access msgs costs me everytime!!!

this is not really a problem but understanding should be clear: Multimedia Messaging Service(MMS)
MMS is a descendant of SMS (Short Messaging Service). MMS extends text messaging to include longer text, graphics, photos, audio clips, video clips, or any combination of the above, within certain size limits.
MMS is frequently used to send photos and videos from camera phones to other MMS phones or email accounts. Most camera phones have MMS, but many non-camera phones have it as well. if it has a photo, video or audio it will automatically be categorize as MMS
While SMS stands for short message service. SMS is also often referred to as texting, sending text messages or text messaging. The service allows for short text messages to be sent from one cell phone to another cell phone or from the Web to another cell phone. purely text:

some network providers dont provide object push which prevents the pictures from getting pushed to your mobile , but they will send the link to download the picture , report the problem to your network provider.
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
Kindly check the message center number from your mobile phone if its already there or you can contact your Network Service Provider to provide you the specific and correct message center number. Usually, you don't have to touch these numbers. If you suspect they are incorrect, contact your mobile service provider and ask them to send an Over The Air (OTA) message with the correct information in it.
Please be informed that the SMS Message Center Number is a phone number that acts as a gateway for transferring SMS messages between cellular devices.
From the Options pulldown menu, select Preferences.
The SMS Message Center and SMS E-mail Center number should appear. (Treo 600 note: tap on the tab that says SIM). If you do not see any numbers, it means your mobile service provider does not allow you to change these numbers. But usually you can edit these numbers and your Network Service Provider will provide you the correct and specific one.
I had similiar problems with my 680 but the problems are gone now. Mine had to do with 2 specific add on apps, Olive Tree Bible Reader, which had a patch, and Ultra-soft Money, which had a specific issue with the budget function. I applied the Olive Tree Bible reader patch and deleted the budget function of UltraSoft money and my issues are gone.
Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.
Hello, hope it helps (from http://www.chaddickerson.com/blog/2006/05/19/what-to-do-when-sending-an-sms-makes-your-treo-650-reboot/)
The application that causes the reboot varies, but it’s always the
same error related to the message store. Here’s how you fix it (and
beware — this deletes all the text messages on your device!):
If you don’t already have it, you need to download and install FileZ
on your Treo. All this does is give you access to all the files on the
Palm OS filesystem. This is a tool that must be used very carefully,
since you can move, copy, and delete any files on the Treo, even ones
you didn’t know were there. It’s one of the most useful Treo utilities
you can have.
Run FileZ on your phone and choose “View and Edit Files.” In the
next screen, you should see “Internal” under Filename. It might also
say “ROM.” If you have an SD Card, you should also see “External” or
Click on the little wedge beside “Internal” to expand the list of files on your Treo.
Find Messages Database and delete it (you do this by checking it, choosing “Details,” and then clicking “Delete”)
