Cannot text message

Cannot send text messages. Tried new SIM still not working, even in another phone, getting to the point of changing provider now.

Re: Cannot text message

Hi Jonfoster

 

Thanks for posting. Sorry to hear you're having issues sending SMS. Is this to every number?

 

Best,

Re: Cannot text message

Thanks for coming back to us @Jonfoster, are you able to call and use mobile data or are you having issues with those activities also?

 

Regards,

Re: Cannot text message

Thanks for the update @Jonfoster.

 

I can take a further look into this for you but would need to take some details via a private message, so that we can get passed account security and get the issues looked into further.

 

Please look out for my message and we can get started.

 

 

Regards,

Steven_L

Re: Cannot text message

Thanks for confirming your details @Jonfoster.

 

I have located the issue, your text messaging service was set to read only, I have changed the setting back to send and receive and cannot find a reason why this had been done on your account.

 

Please can you reboot your handset and let me know if this is now working and allows you to send and receive messages.

 

Regards,

Steven_L
