Hi,

Try removing battery whilst phone is powered on, leave it out for 15-30 second. as soon as phone starts up try sending any message to 9770.

If you specify your phone someone may know what to check...

I had a problem like this once. Put in a different sim card (not sure but I think it must be a different network) turn it on then off and back to your original sim card. Hope that works for you

do you have google hangout? see if you have another app set as default? also check you service centre number? try a full factory reset? have you downloaded a new app?

how long have you had the phone/sim... my lad put his new sim into his i phone and had the same problem, a new sim sorted it out... that was on Tesco pay monthly ( month to month contract ) also kept same number..

ok the latest is, if I have my internet on gsm only, the text sends. if I have it back on 4G, then texts don't send :-/
#10
sorry meant network mode, not internet
#11
Have you tried turning it off and back on?

Try message centre number. go in to messages then press the options button (left hand side next to home button) press settings.
The message centre number should read s +447785016005

Good grief man! The answer is simple, all your contact numbers are stored as work phone numbers. Just copy them to Mobile No.
