8350i: Invalid Service Center when sending SMS

[ Edited ]

Some time back I followed older posts about enabling the 8350i to copose SMS texts.  Prior to that, menu options seemed to allow only MMS and not SMS.  Those posts basically involved going into Options->SMS Text and changing the Data Coding to UCS2 and the Service Center to +Personal info removed (originally blank) followed by a battery pull.  It all seemed to work find afterwards, that is SMS was then a menu option and sending/receiving SMS was working.


Many weeks have passed and now all of a sudden, I get an "Invalid Service Center" when I try to send an SMS.  I can receive just fine but just can't send.  I have attempted resetting the Data Coding and Service Center with no luck.  Whenever I change the Service Center, it merely reverts back to +1personal info removed.  I've tryied a Master Radio Reset with no luck as well.


Any help on what to do is appreciated.
