Unable to send text, but can recieve

Android 5.1, Ulefone BE Touch 2.

 

I do not often send texts, so the last time I did was 20th Aug. However, I tried to reply to a text and it fails. I put the sim card into another phone and it too fails to send. Is there a setting that I can check?

Re: Unable to send text, but can recieve

I've been having the same problem recently - says "sending failed - message barred". Tried in another phone, same issues. Checked SMS center number and is correct.

 

NB: Have unlimited texts so not a problem with credit. Can receive texts fine (calls are fine too).

Had a similar problem on phones where the on board storage is nearly full. Try deleting some apps or just freeing up some on board storage, under android 4, from memory you needed at least 30mb free.

Hi trigram,

 

Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting.

 

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties sending text messages.

 

I can see maffa has suggested checking the memory on the handset.

 

Did you manage to check this?

 

Out of curiosity are you able to send any text messages? It maybe worth trying to send a few texts out. I would suggest not replying to a text you've already received but send a new one. 

 

Let me know if the issue persists.

 

Cheers
