Re: not receiving texts

Can you send using the standard sms app on the phone?

If not you may need to set the SMSC to +447958879890 info on doing this should be in the welcome pack

Re: not receiving texts

Hi, I've tried updating my SMSC number by using the *#*#4636#*#* method then typing +447958879890, also typing "+447958879890" and finally by using the online PDU encoder at

http://www.twit88.com/home/utility/sms-pdu-encode-decode

which produces....

AT+CMGW=19
0791449785788909110000910000AA0CC8F71D14969741F977FD07

of which i use the first 16 digits

then i press update and reboot the phone

the PDU encoder and simply typing the number give an "update error" message when i press update, typing in the number within the quotation marks gives a result which looks good but still does not work.

It's really frustrating. My phone is rooted and I'm running android 4.4.4 and a google play ROM
