Re: text message help

Hey 123qwe, 


SMS messaging is a service provider controlled feature and the number of characters can vary from 1-160, we would suggest contacting your service provider to verify they support one character SMS messages.


Thank you.

Re: text message help

I received the same error. I needed to text a two letter sms to my network provider so that I can link my number to my facebook account, my phone won't let me send the message. I tried sending a longer text to the same number and it worked.
