My BlackBerry Curve won't send texts to new numbers?

Since I believe November 2012, I can't send a text to any new number I put in. I can write and "send" the text but I immediately receive a 9230 text back saying that the phone number was invalid or doesn't have enough digits. I try adding a 1 before the area code, I try taking the 1 out, I try taking the area code out altogether... It doesn't matter. It is very frustrating when I need to send an important message but it is too late to call. Why does it do this?? And how can I fix it?

Re: My BlackBerry Curve won't send texts to new numbers?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Please check, inside of the phone app Options, the settings for "Smart Dialing"...it is possible that some digits are being automatically appended to your SMS messages, making the destination invalid.

Otherwise, contact your mobile service provider for formal support with this voice-level service.

Good luck!
