    Thanks for the advice. I have followed your instructions and unfortunately I am still unable to send any texts, even with the correct message centre number. I only have a choice of Packet data or GSM/UMTS as my preferred connection so made sure I selected the latter.

    Any other ideas please?

Hi there,

Please check the sms messeges center number, for this number you need to contact your provider if you dont know the messages center number.

And please be sure that the sms using GSM line to send, not umts.

    here is my last solution,

    IF you want to try it, please reset your phone with this code " *#7370# " at your standby screen.
    But the risk insert that code, you will lose all your data like phonebook and anything that you store at your phone memory.

    If that solution still dont work, try to FORMATING your phone using 3 finger methoid.
    - turn off your phone
    - Press and hold * + 3 + green button
    - Press power button
    - Keep pressing the 3 finger
    - Realease your 3 finger after your phone enter Choose Country and City Menu.

    Try to check ones again your message center and prefered connection after you try one of my solution.

    If it still not working, You must bring your phone to Repair Shop or Nokia Care Center to re-programing or upgrading your phone firmware.

One of the solutions is formatting your phone, but isn't it annoying that every time it happens you have to format your phone, i have another idea, i installed netqin mobile security, you can download it on nokia ovi store, it's free, after installing i open the application, then press the "SYS OPTIMIZATION tab" then, press the "optimize" button, exit. then try sending the message again... it should work... it worked on mine all the time.... i have a Nokia C7-00 also....

try to delete all Send messaged in your Sent folder in your Outlook. Because there is limitation of 2GB per folder, and if you reached it then all messages in Outbox can not be sent because they can't be copied to Sent folder.

I am unable to send texts

you may have to check your settings on the nokia- may not have text message 'up-loading'- 'sending' set up. your service may allow 'free' incoming- but not sending!
check your phone settings- may need to go on-line to alter your settings! or find info to set your phone!
good luck!

Unable to send text messages on my new nokia 5800

All you have to do is go to your message setting on your phone:
1. Open Messaging
2. On New message sellect options at bottom
3. Open settings
4. Open Text message, you should see: Message centre, message centre in use ect..
5. Open message centres this should go to next screen then open again, this screen should have : Message centre name & Message centre number (from your network provider you need to find out what is the message centres name & number are e.g in Australia it should be SMSC1 and number is +61411990001) then just manually enter these in there.

Sending text messages...

Hi julietdb,

This sometimes occurs when a SIM card has gone wrong.
Go to Messages, Settings, Text Message, Service Centre

Then, call your ISP, ask for the SMS Service center number.
Then, verify that it is the one written in the location I gave you.
If not, replace it with the number you were given.

In case it is - there's probably something wrong with the SIM card and it needs to be replaced.
