I recently helped my uncle with this problem by correcting the 'Message Centre Number' which is provided by the network provider. You will probably have to give your network provider a call and make sure you have the correct number entered on your phone. In the case of my uncle's phone, only part of the number was entered on his phone, so it needed to be complete before he could send SMS, even though he could receive them. Hope that helps.

Hi all you need to do is contact your service provider and tell them what phone you have got, then ask them to check if your message center number is correct and also ask them to send you the latest settings for mms and wap, they wont charge you for doing this and they send the settings via test message, this will then update your phone and get it working again.
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
there are only settings on the phone that will stop sending of messages, settings will not stop the receiving of messages (unless their mms - picture messages). I would suggest you speak to your network as it maybe something on your account at their end that needs fixing?
Incoming mesages (sms) are directed at your mobile number so the phone will receive them as you do a call.
Let us know how you get on?
Hi annisa, sure it looks like a settings problem. SMS are receveide into your phone, after being routed to the server, and then to your number, from the sernder. When you instead need to send SMS you nned to have SMS server settings correctly set up on your mobile. The settings depend on your phone company. You can try copying the SMS and MMS settings from a friend with the same provider (Telekom, U mobile, Maxis, etc). A better way to fix it is calling mobile provider customer service number, and having assistance and step by step instructions to set up your phone. If that still does not work, that means that there is a problem with your phone try resetting the phone to factory settings (do a phone reset from settings menu).
Do you want to sent mms/sms. for sending mms you need to suscribe from your operator and save mms settings on your mobile.
For sms check your message center number with your network provider and input the number in your message setting option.
