I can't send text messages.

Whenever I try to send a message, it says, "Message not sent." with an exclamation point in a triangle.

This happened after I flashed a custom rom.

How can I fix this? :smileysad:

Thanks in advance.

Hi Kalybe, you can do a Software repair using SE Update Service. You should be aware that this will erase phone data completely. :smileyhappy:

Re: I can't send text messages.

Thanks for the suggestion, gwhisperez! But, I didn't need to to do a Software repair anymore. :smileyhappy:

What I did was, I tried exchanging the sim cards of my old Sony Ericsson K700i with my Xperia X8.

I found out that the sim card was the problem, not the phone.

After I exchanged sim cards, I tried to send messages.

The X8 was finally working again. :smileyhappy:

When I tried it on K700i, it said, message barred .

So, my problem was solved, but I have another question. :smileysilly:

Is there anyway to fix my old sim card? I don't want to go through the trouble of telling all my contacts I have a new number, unless I have to. :smileysilly:

Thanks, again! :smileyhappy:

Thanks for the info. :smileyhappy:

Can't your Network Operator just replace the SIM card with the same number?!

I also have the same problem. I have a corporate Sim card and there's no possibility to change it. I tried everything I can but nothing works... I'm stuck... I just must accept that my X8 can't send messages...

Re: I can't send text messages.

Hi, don't give up hope yet till you try the followings. Test with different Network mode. Have you done a software repair to see if that will resolve the issue? Just providing some suggestions (hope). :smileyhappy: Be aware that software repair will erase your phone data completely (SD card not affected), remember to backup.

Re: I can't send text messages.

Thanks, gwhispererz, but I've done that and several times and with various sim cards. I still hope SE will release a new firmware and it'll fix my issue...
