Thread: can't send sms
09-29-2007, 08:00 AM #1can't send sms
first off all I'd like t point out that I have found a lot of decent info on this forum, it even helped me to the unlocking process which crashed about 14 times.
So its unlocked and working perfectly, I can make calls, internet, youtube etc. However there is a small problem with sms'ing
I can receive messages but I can't send any,
When I send a new message or respond to a message I just get;
'error sending message'
I found a lot of info about Iphones that can't receive, but mine cant send , ironic
I was also wondering if I can turn off the dictionary for sending messages, haven't really searched the net but will do os when waiting for a response for this topic
Thanks in advance

My phone can't send sms too. It can receive though. I can only read in the preview screen. When I click on the SMS button, it opens to a blank notepad screen, and it just shuts it immediately.

I get the same problem, using Orange network in Poland. What's additionally weird is that I was able to send SMS's without a problem for about 2 weeks after unlocking the phone and all of the sudden it stopped. I haven't upgraded the iphone software and I did try to reset the phone, no luck.

Same problem here in Romania, Orange carrier. All functions, except for sending SMS, work perfectly. Please someone enlighten us on how to proceed.

Must be a phone related issue, I was just in Romania last month and never had any problems on O2....

problem is on sim card,some models don't have service center number mounted, i found somewhere on forums you have to dial: *5005*7672* +servicecenternumber# then dial it will show setting succeeded service center address

I have the same problem, but I accidentally found out that if I once clear the conversation I will be able to send the message... but the thing is u have to do it every time you wanna send message.... anyways try it...
try clear the conversation and try to send the message again, it works for me, let me know if it works so I know I am not alone....

Is there a fix for this problem yet? I can´t send sms to anyone at all, and the problems stayed from 1.0.2 (iUnlock) to 1.1.1 (anySIM).. Please help!

Actualy it is not problem You have to put in SMS center number for Your GSM provider:
where XXXXXXXX is number of SMS center and SMS should work.

did the sms center reset and right number but still cant send!

on some way, iphone deletes the sms service number build in into the simcard. even if you add the service number this won't work.
this is what you do to solve all sms issues.
1) take out the simcard
2) put it into a another non iphone phone
3) send 2 sms, to your self one to a friend
4) take it out
5) put it back into iphone and it works.
