You made your post here in the Social Lounge section, not exactly the best place for technical help.

 

So, what happens when you send an SMS text message... any error, or what happens?

 

Do a simple reboot on the BlackBerry in this manner:

 

With the BlackBerry device POWERED ON, remove the battery for a minute, and then reinsert the battery to reboot. A reboot in this manner is prescirbed for most gltiches and operating system errors, and you will lose no data on the device doing this.

ummmm, perhaps the 9530 model section would be appropriate.

Please don't repost, we'll get it moved.

Sorry, I don't know what you've tried... the crystal ball here is all whacky today :smileywink:

 

Go to Options > SMS and check the SMS settings for Data Coding, what is your setting there?

Same difference.

please go to that SMS, and open it. Then scroll up and up. There should be a line with an error message. Please write it down for us.

Re: CAN'T SEND A SMS FROM MY VERIZON BLACKBERRY 9530

I had the same problem, i live in SA as well.
to fix do this:
menu -> options -> advanced options -> sim card -> blackberry button ->edit SIM Phone Number -> enter your number without the country code. eg 074 *** **** and not +27* *** ****

next do this :
 menu -> options -> phone options -> voice mail -> change access number to your number.

menu -> options -> phone options -> smart dailing -> country code -> and selct  South Africa (+27)
