Short Message Transfer Rejected

Why does my Blackberry not let me send messages to my dad? I can recieve , messages from him and phone him, but whenever I send a message to him, it comes up with a red 'X' and 'Short message transfer rejected'. 


Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

Re: Short Message Transfer Rejected

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

If, by "Short Message Transfer", you mean SMS, then please contact your mobile service provider for assistance...SMS is 100% a carrier-provided service, their is nothing in the BB-proprietary services that is involved.

If, on the other hand, you meant some other messaging service, then please be explicit about what exactly that is.

Thanks and let us know!
