Blackberry Storm won't let me send an SMS.

Hi

 

Blackberry is working fine for e-mails and browser, but when I sent SMS it just stays in my inbox with a red X.  When I try to change my "SMS" options to not give me delivery reports, it says "Invalid Service Centre Specified".  Not sure if this is related but I've been looking online and can't seem to solve it, any help appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Hello,

 

For issues with your SMS text messaging I would recommend contacting your wireless provider.

First try to re-boot the device.  If that does not work....go to:

 

>options

>advanced options

>host routing tables

>menu key

>register now

 

If that does not work.....try this: 

 

>email settings

>login if necessary

>menu key

>service books

>send service books

 

Hopefully one of these will fix your txt msg problem.

Hi Thanks for the replies I've done the first thing with registering, but when on e-mail settings, it isn't giving me the option to send books.  Sorry if I'm being a complete newbie, but I just can't find it.

When you click on email settings:

 

if you log right in ....

 

hit the menu key, in the pop up menu you should see....

 

send service books.

Hi ive got the same problem. Go Options, SMS, You may find that where it says service center there is no number. If not select and put in your service number (you can get from your service provider) then push blackberry button and save. This should solve the problem unless like me it wont save the number for some godforsaken reason. In which case i have been told i need a new phone because there is a problem with the software. Good luck.

Re: Blackberry Storm won't let me send an SMS.

I finally fixed my sms issue. Smiley Happy

I bought an outright Blackberry Storm and could receive sms but not send.

I kept noticing the voicemail number preset in the phone, and I know if I miss a call I get an sms if I have voicemail.

Not sure why but when I updated the voicemail number in my Storm and replaced it with my carriers voicemail number, within a few minutes it was working.

Not sure if the voicemail number is the cause of everyone's issue, but worth trying.
