Re: Message sending failed error

you have to try to restore the factory settings or get the message centre number from your network provider or erase all the sent messages from your phone :smileyhappy:

Re: Message sending failed error

You don't say what country you are in, what network you use and what phone model you have.

It has been known for operator-variant models to lose their message centre settings, you can checn by going Menu>Messaging>Message Settings>Text Messages>Message Centres.

This issue currently exists in the UK and affects 6233 and 6280 phones owned by customers of operator 3. If you are one of these cases, you need to reset your message centre name as 3b and the number as +447782000800.

If not a 3 customer in the UK, check in your settings by going through the settings as described above, of the settings are missing you then need to obtain the correct message centre settings from your operator.

Re: Message sending failed error

..But does it go thru' on resend or again gets stuck in the Outbox ? Also is ita new problem ?

If there are any messages stuck in the Outbox, first delete all and then try again. If the problem still persists confirm the Message Centre Settings. call up your operator for this and also confirm whether any Network problem is reason for this.

Re: Message sending failed error

I got the same error-message on my Nokia C3-1.

I discovered however, that I got this message repeatedly but ONLY when I tried to send a message to one particular contact! Sending to others was ok.

Both my Inbox and Outbox contained many messages to and from this contact (20 or so each).

After archiving all messages from both In- and Outbox everything worked fine again!

 

Before this I tried solutions suggested by others here, like Resetting Factory Settings etc. but to no avail.

I do think that Nokia should look into this matter and provide an adequate error-message if in/outbox limitations are causing this error.
