I kept getting 'text message not sent' error when I tried to send a text. I could however receive texts from everyone. This usually means your SMSC number is not working/correct.

However, my SMSC was default for the carrier. The number started with 0092... I changed the 00 to + and viola, everything was fixed.


To change your SMSC:

-Dial *#*#4636#*#*
-Go to phone information
-Hit refresh next to the SMSC box
-Change the first two digits '00' to +
-Hit update
