Lumia 822 unable to send sms after portico update...

 

I am currentrly using Lumia 822 in unlocked GSM mode. After updating Lumia 822 to portico, I cannot send sms.

 

I believe this issue in seen both in US and India and tried many different carriers.

When update for Lumia 822 will come?  Will it fixed the sms 'not being able to send' issue?

 

I believe a broken sms functionality is very bad and a big BUG !!

Re: Lumia 822 unable to send sms after portico update...

Hi piyushj and psyfi,

 

Nokia Lumia 822 is a Verizon variant phone in US.

 

@piyushj, if your phone is unlocked, under which Network Carrier are you using the 822 at the moment?

 

@psyfi, did you also unlock the phone? if yes, please provide the Network Carrier you are using to that phone.


Are you able to receive text messages?
Are you able to make or receive calls?
Are you able to browse the web or run applications requiring internet connection using the data connection you have with your respective Network Carriers?

 

You can try the following steps provided below. After this, you can try to send a text message again.

1. Go to Settings.
2. Tap mobile network (or cellular).
3. Tap Highest connection speed and select 2G.
4. Wait for at least 5 seconds and select 3G.

 

Kindly check too with your Network Carrier that you have the correct SMS center number. You can go to Messaging, tap on the three dots (...) and then go to Settings. You will see SMS center number there. You can also go to Settings,  Applications and then Messaging to look for the said number.

Nokia Lumia 1020 - nothing comes close Nokia Asha 501 - super smart pocket power

Please refrain from giving a generic answer, without having a clue about phone details or without even doing proper check before answering. If you have read the link, you would'nt have asked any question. still i will answer the questions you raised for you.

 

First, regarding 822, it is sold as unlocked gsm mobile. And I am using it with Airtel in India. 

 

Are you able to receive text messages? Yes
Are you able to make or receive calls? yes
Are you able to browse the web or run applications requiring internet connection using the data connection you have with your respective Network Carriers? yes

SMS center number -- it is correct.

 

It may be noted that "Everything works with original shipped firmware and after update, sms sending breaks"

 

Anyway, i now know the issue. and it is both - Nokia and Verizon deliberate attempt to avoid phone usage outside their (Verizon) network. And Nokia, with blocking download of old firmware, people can't even downgrade.

Verizon also blocked changing APN, making phone unable to use any data services outside  their network in GSM mode. However, with installing network+, apn can be changed
