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.
I was told to remove the battery and SIM card, wait three minutes then power up the phone again. (Time and Date have to be reset) Unfortunately this did not solve the problem so it could be a Vodafone network problem. I am wary of trying the SIM in a different brand or model of phone in case of an unexpected reformat occurring, so until a duplicate phone arrives the job is on hold. In general one just cannot get the right staff these days. Take care!
This is usually due to the phone being lock to a distant cell tower, if that is the case just shut the phone off and remove the battery wait about 2 minutes and replace the battery and restart the phone,if that doesn't fix the problem it may be an internal problem or a carrier problem.
The position of the SIM card holder depends on your phone model. It might be placed under the battery or on the side of the phone. Before inserting/removing your SIM card, turn off your phone and make sure no charger is connected to the phone. Insert your SIM card according to the illustration that you find close to the SIM card holder. Note: Without a SIM card, you can't make or receive calls. In some countries you can make emergency calls without a SIM card.
The problem is not on the phone setting but on the sim card itself. Remove the battery and the sim and let it sit for 5 minutes. After that, insert sim and battery then try sending a text message. To verify, insert your sim to another phone and use a different sim in your phone.
I would first try removing the sim card and placing it back in the phone. Open the battery cover, remove the battery, remove the sim card, rub it with a clean cloth on the metallic areas, replace the sim card, replace the battery, replace the cover. Turn phone back on.
If that doesnt fix it, where did you get the phone? If its through t-mobile or something, contact them. If you bought it online, try sonyericsson's website
Two things to try. One is remove the battery then remove the sim card make sure it is clean. Wipe it with alcohol. If it still does not work you may need to go to your nearest store and they should be able to check it for you to make sure there are no updates that your phone normally downloads and you never know it. Usually when they place a new tower. I had a similar problem. Also if your sim chip is bad ATT can replace it usually at no charge and that should fix the problem.
These devices are made to work in both modes you may have to reset, remove the battery while the cell is on and count to 30, then replace battery and power back on this should work! If it does'nt call your provider and check Sim card.
