    1) Contact the Mobile Network Provider and get the proper message settings.
    2) If the Message center number is not updated properly these errors will happen.
    3) If that is unable to rectify the problem then reset the DEVICE.
    4) MAKE SURE you back up all the data.

    1) Check if there is any problem in the key board settings available in the DEVICE.
    2)get help from the manufacturer website about the Problem.
    3) If nothing works then reset the device.

    Check the message settings. Navigate to messages and click on message settings and check the option outbound and inbound options.

    hi friend,

    if you are not able to receive \ send the message you have to check the settings in your mobile

    you have to check all these settings....

    first check the message settings in your mobile

    you can also check the NETWORK settings in your mobile and check wether
    the mobile is connected with the mobile network....

    if all the settings are fine then you just have to do FACTORY RESET...

    if still you will not get the solution then visit the SERVICE CENTRE
    near your house....

    best of luck...
