Re: can't send sms use packet data ( getting error as Could not send)

Make sure that the SMS center number is correct. Go to messaging > menu button > settings > SMS center number. Control that the number is correct with your network provider. 

 

Otherwise I suggest that you try with another SIM card in your phone.

Re: can't send sms use packet data

Hi there,

 

What if you try:

 

Settings>Apps>All>Message app(or any other app you use for that purpose) and then clear data/cache>force stop + restart your phone.

 

 

Cheers.

Can you send SMS to any other numbers or do you get the same error message?

Re: can't send sms use packet data

Hey Jason,

 

I had a similar issue!

Issue sorted by selecting premium sending option in settings > Apps > All > Messaging

Scroll down and you will see a permissions section and there you can select always for send preminum SMS option.
