I am not able to send out SMS from my new nothing phone 1. Have tried trouble shooting with all solutions available in YouTube / Google / internet but still getting a reply 'not sent, tap to try again'

Nothing Phone 1
For sure you have a APN settings problem.

You must search your APN provider settings and check APN actual settings in your device

What is your provider ?

Even I am not able to send SMS to any of the numbers, @Pho3nX Tried everything..
Also after switching on aeroplane mode on and off for 3 seconds I am able to send an SMS but after that no. Moreover switching to 3G helps me send SMS. Also to some contacts, I could send SMS but that's very rare. Due to this I cant even verify my bank account on gpay or paytm! Any fixes? (I tried the Apn settings you shared but it doesn't still work)

It may well be helpful if members state the country and network and if the device is a European or Global one.
Just my 2 cents. 😏

I have the exact same issue below is the device info:
Country - India
Carrier - VI (Vodafone & Idea).
Config - 8/256GB Black variant.
OS - 1.1.2

Issue description - There is a delay in SMS(5-10 mins) and at times SMS fails to be send when using VI sim . Certain apps like Swiggy, Zomato works where it send OTP code to the registered number however issue happens when apps like banking (Axis/ICICI) sends SMS from device to their end, where it fails or gets delivered after some time and leads to a timeout situation.
From what I can see it is mostly when sending SMS and is specifically to VI Sim cards. I did not face such issue when using carrier - JIO.

Note - I was able to find a temporary walkaround with banking apps registration by selecting 3G as mentioned above and also on a separate thread. (it is a bit slow but seems to work for now).

For now have shared my issue with Nothing support I urge others who are affected to do the same as it will help to push for a fix.

yes, 3G works fine I tried it. Also maybe switching on aeroplane mode and then turning it off allows me to send SMS for a time period of 3-4 secs, that's how I verify the bank apps.
Are you planning to replace? (don't tell me that all of the np's have this issue).

I did not use the device much initially and by the time I found the issue it was too late ,replacement window expired and I don't feel that going to service center will provide much help.
Also I found a few more issues:
1)HDR videos on YouTube seems like a hit or miss most of the time, some videos lag at 4K HDR 60FPS else at times it gets stuck at 480P or just plays in normal mode without HDR option ; need to close and reopen app to temporarily fix the issue. But mostly with 4K HDR 60FPS videos this issue creeps in. Have tried YouTube Vanced, downgrading to older version but nothing helps.
2)There is also a bug with work profile where the button "text" is of a lighter shade and hence text is harder to read. This is only when dark mode is turned on but looks fine in light mode.

Have already performed multiple Factory Reset from Boot menu but issue remains. Also I am yet to receive any response from Nothing support for the concern I raised earlier.

At present I feel that it was a bad decision to buy this phone.

Iam facing the same problem,have tried everything under the sun to rectify it but without success.only the switching airplane mode on/off seems to solve problem but works once after that we back to the square one. I have raised the issue with nothing but there is no response.it was stupid decision to buy nothing

I think this issue only exists in Vi handsets @#Android4Life#

Hi Edwin, I too tried everything, changing to 3G helps a little bit. But have you got any solution on this
