Default [Q] SMS/Text not working on the Infuse

I think I know what the problem is, but I want to make double sure before I go to the AT&T store.

I recently changed over to the Infused 1.5 ROM and during the process had to take out the SIM Card due to a small issue I had. Did this about 3 days ago and phone, data, and email have been working fine.

Last night, I thought it was odd that I was not receiving text messages and asked one of my friends to try to text. Did not get anything, so I tried texting him. Still nothing. So I decided to try it in my Blackberry to see if I can text, and I still could not receive or send texts despite being able to before on this phone.

From what I have read, some people have had issues if the new batch of SIM cards gets scratched, so I am planning on going to the AT&T store to exchange the SIM card and have them test text messaging. Anyone else had any similar issues?

Default message center number

See if Your message center number was wiped when you installed new ROM. go to Messaging/Settings/Message Center....
If there is no number, Insert this +1 312 314 9810,
This is the message center number for ALL AT&T SIM cards.

Hope this helped.

Thanks everyone for your responses. I took it to AT&T and got a new SIM card, everything seems to be working fine now.

Plug Similar Problem- Unable to send SMS from Beanstalk Rom 4.4+

Hi,
I am getting a similar problem and I am unable to send sms from my infuse, though I am able to receive SMS. I am using a Beanstalk ROM 4.4.240-20140203.
Model No: SGH-I997
Baseband Version: I997UCLB3
Kernel Version: 2.6.35.7-I997UCLB3-CL977492-g1bc7cfe
I think the problem is that the Message Center number is not properly set in the settings, but the problem is that I am unable to find the settings to change the message center.

I have searched for the option to change the Message Center by clicking on settings of messaging app but though there are many options to change the viewing settings of SMSes but there is no option to change the SMS Center number.

I would be greatly thankful for directing me in the correct direction
