Question about Motorola Mobility Q Smartphone

2 Answers

SMS messages My Q will receive text messages but will not send them. When trying to send, it says, "error, text message cannot be sent." I read on another post where it has something to do with the memory, but I put in the memory card and it still gives me the same error message.

    Under the text message service center # is the number provided by AT&T and it is correct - I have checked with them multiple times. I looked for an option under all of the other selections to change the reply via same server to 'no' and I could not find one. Do you know where or if I can change that setting?
    Also, what is meant by multiple networks? The inbox, pending, and outgoing mailboxes are empty.

Hi when you say what is ment by multipull networks, this usually means that the phone can take different network.
Also with you message problem you will need to ring your service provider and ask for the message senter number they will give you this over the phone.
Also you can ask them if they will send you the settings for your phone via a text message you can do this on most networks and this will update all your settings hopefully solving your problem.
I will look for your message center number and also see if i can find the right settings for your phone and if i find them i will talk you through what you need to do.
Let me know how you get on ok speak soon.
Hope this is some help to you i will continue to look for your settings and number you need if i find them i will post message here for you ok.

Dear jmoore, first of all i would like to check you message settings. There are multiple parts in it. check your message center number. if you dont know it ask you service provider. You also have to put reply via same server to 'NO'. I assume you are in proper service area.

You might also like to get your hardware checked for any signal problems with your cellphone. You can also try to send it on multiple networks to see if it works. And if it does on some networks then it means theres nothing wrong with your cellphone. Recipient inbox could be full. You should also delete all the pending messages from your outbox to solve the problem.
It that doesnt work there is no way except taking the phone to your nearest cellphone shop.

If that has helped you please press 'fixya'

Hi. I inserted my sim into my iPad but cannot receive SMS

You cannot receive SMS sent to the SIM in your iPad. SMS are sent over the voice network, not the internet. And your iPad does not connect to the voice network. If you have a data-only SIM, your carrier should not be sending SMS to that number. This means it can't be used for phone calls or Short Message Service (SMS) text messages without installing an additional app. If your clients and business colleagues use Apple iOS devices, including the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, you can send and receive text messages using iMessage, which is already on your iPad.

My mms messages do not send on my curve 8520, they try to send for a long time then show it failed to send, i tried sending to myself and that did not work

This could only be caused by a couple of things. The message center number in the handset may not be correct, which will cause the messages to fail. The other possibility is that the feature is not active on your account with your wireless provider. What you need to do is test a couple of things. See if you can send a text/sms message to yourself, in doing this you can verify that you can not only send, but receive text/sms messages. If you cannot send, or receive text/sms messages, then that verifies that the message/service center number is off, and will need to be corrected. If that works, and you can receive text/sms messages, then your service center number is correct, and you will move to the next troubleshooting step, which is to test your web browser. If you cannot launch the web browser on your handset, then this is an issue, because the MMS service requires that you have both SMS, and web browser service to send a MMS message. If you can access the internet and you have the ability to send/receive text/sms, then you need to call your service provider as the issue may be with their service.

Can't receive any text messages on my Samsung


Please try clearing some of the messages stored in your Inbox and Sent Items as well. This could be preventing new messages from coming in because the memory is full.

I can not send SMS message. SMS Message Center Number Error

I had the same problem and came to this site for help but the solutions didn't solve the problem of "cannot send text message" on htc touch hd. All service numbers correct. Went to START/SETTINGS/CONNECTIONS/ADVANCED NETWORK/SMS SERVICE then changed from "gprs" to "gprs preferred". Double checked and had reverted to "GSM" but sms now works - finally!!! Hope this helps.

SMS memory Full

Pictures, saved music or files and games. I believe.

SMS sending error!

if its a new phone / sim then you might need sms / wap settings sent from your service provider to set the sms message centre number in your phone etc.

Alternatively some SP's require you to call them and register a payg phone to enable full functionality, call your customer service line and explain, they will fix it right away.
