SMS sending error: message format not supported

Hi,

 

Ever since I switched to the new OS 6, I cannot send SMS messages to anybody. Here's the problem:

 

- I send an SMS to various people with different phones

- Various people tell me they cannot read the message, different phones (Nokia, Android) report getting "message format not supported"

- For some reason, only iPhone users can read my SMS

- Sending MMS works, but not SMS

 

My phone provider is WIND, and I was wondering if this is due to my provider or the new OS? I can only use BBM for so long lol.

Hi

 

Change the text messaging data decoding from 8 bit to 7 bit.

 

It worked for me.
