Default 8700 won't send sms messages

Please Login to Remove!

For some reason, my 8700 stopped sending SMS messages. Is there a way to turn that function on or off? If I reached my text limit, does it turn off?

Thanks,

Kameraman

What happens when you try to send? I believe if you reached your limit you can still send, your carrier will just charge a certain amount of money for each message over the limit.

You may want to try (if you haven't already) pulling the battery to see if that helps.

Hmmmm...Are you able to receive text messages at all? Sounds like it may be a temporary issue. I recall my BlackBerry 8700g doing that once, where people weren't receiving them. Maybe three or four hours later they started receiving them. How long has it been going on?

That sounds like a carrier network problem. If it appears the SMS has been sent, your phone has already passed it to the network. So, if they're not arriving, something in the network or a server is gummed up.

That's exactly what it was! I went there today and they told me it was taken off for some reason. Works again!

Thanks for input from all involved!

check your SMS Settings:
make sure that the NETWORK TO SEND OVER: is set to GSM or GPRS Preferred. GPRS alone may prevent transmission of SMS over your network...
