Hi, switch off phone, remove and re-insert SIM Card, power on and try again.

there was a similar issue with the X10 that was triggered when you have a LOT of sms stored on your phone, try a different SIM card but also check the APN settings

settings -> sony ericsson -> internet settings

or manually

settings -> wireless & networks -> mobile networks -> access point name -> MENU -> add -> enter all the info -> menu -> save

Re: cannot send any sms from sony ericsson xperia arc.need help!!!

if that doesn't do it you can back up everything and do a factory reset (settings -> privacy -> factory reset)

this is how to backup

Other ways to backup

Contacts

just to play it safe sync your contacts w/ google if you haven't already

open your phonebook

press MENU button -> tap on Send Contacts -> select all -> send it to your email
on your computer
-> download the file -> go to your gmail -> click on contacts -> click on more actions -> on the drop down menu click on "import" -> choose the file -> and click import
Apps

Don't worry so much about backing up your apps

on your computer go to

market.android.com -> log in -> click on My Library -> and send all your apps to your phone

SMS/MMS

if you don't want to use the backup & restore app then

Install "backup SMS" to back up your SMS and MMS to your Gmail

or your SMS use

"backup & restore SMS"

or for your MMS use "Save MMS"
