Welcome to the Forum.
If you enter *#7370# on your phone, all files will be cancelled. Before performing a hard reset, I would advise you to save all your personal details on your computer via Nokia suite.
Symbian Belle won't be cancelled with a hard reset.
I've just come across this issue also on Nokia N8 after firmware updated and backup restored, and solved by doing the below:
- Go to Settings -> Application Settings-> Messaging
- Text Message:
+Message Center in use -> SIM message center (reselect)
+ Character encoding: Full support (toggle it)
+ Receive Report: No => Yes
+ Preferred connection: GSM/3G
+ Reply via same center: No
- Servive message
+Service messages: on => Off
- Operator message:
Quit Settings, and back to SMS. And it works without having to reset.
Hope this helps.
the fix above didn't help me.
I have an N8.. updated to bella a year ago, worked fine for a year and then this problem just randomly started a few weeks ago. I have never restored from a backup and the phone hadn't been updated in months as there hasn't been any new updates for ages.
Now in convo mode I just keep getting this message and eventually it works. It is insane frustrating as i was hoping to at least get another year out of this phone before getting rid of symbian once and for all. :/
Its just a joke that nokia after all these years cant even get sms sending right.. a simple fundamental task that everyone uses.. and they break it..
Im using the N8 and this problem started yesterday with bits of old message being pasted onto the end of new ones. Its really getting annoying now, I've tried the hard reset and the above fix but nothing works! Get onto this pronto Nokia i used to love using this phone now I prefer my Blackberry!!
