    Hi,

    Sorry if this been posted before but I tried to search and I don't find answers for 1.1.4 phones, most post are about lower firmware and I don't know if thats right solutions...ruther be safe than sorry.

    Could someone please direct me to the sollution please? Would be much appreciated.


    Thank you in advance and again, sorry if I missed any post about this already!

    To all of you who are still having problems sending out sms-es, you can try the following fix and see if it works.

    Before you start you need to know the SMS service centre number of your operator. Find that out.

    Step 1 - Checking what number is set as your SMS service centre number

    Launch your iPhone keypad and type -

    *#5005*7672#
    Press Call

    You will get a response that tells you the number that has been set as your SMS service centre number. In all probability, that number is missing a digit or is wrong.

    Step 2 - Erasing the incorrect SMS service centre number

    On your iPhone keypad, type -

    ##5005*7672#
    Press Call

    You will get a response that tells you that the service centre has no address or something to that effect. It means it has been erased.

    Step 3 - Setting the correct the SMS service centre number

    On your iPhone keypad, type -

    **5005*7672*+nnnnnnnnn#
    Press Call

    Note - nnnnnnn is the number of the SMS service centre number that you need to find out in the first place.

    You should get a response telling you the number has been set. If the response says No Address, you can use Step 1 to check the number.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
    Try this steps!

    You may want to try a restore, and then readd the number. Can you send messages via www.fido.ca to your phone?

    I know how that feels! I had to restore mine and reinstall my apps at least 6 times when I got my phone, before everything would work correctly. The worst part is that theres no guarantee it will work.

    Before you do the restore, try removing your SIM, cleaning it off, putting it back in, and then resetting network settings under General.
