Re: short message transfer rejected

Just to one person or everyone you try and text?


Have you contacted your carrier to check your SIM card is properly provisioned.

Re: short message transfer rejected

Had same problem on bb bold, delete contact then send sms manually using contacts number. clear all previous messages then re-add contact!....worked for me!
