    Greetings!

    I'm new to these Crackberry boards and I've joined because I have a problem with my Blackberry Bold 9700. As the title says, I can receive SMS but I CAN'T send them nor reply those. I've done anything within my hands until now and I did some research before coming down here.

    The message's center service number is correct for example. Also, it's necessary to mention I'm using an unlocked T-Mobile with my local company called Telcel back here at Mexico. I'd love some feedback or a possible solution on this!

    Kind regards.

    PS: I also tried sending sms to different people, at least 4. None of them received the sms I sent. I tried sending one to myself too and I did receive it. I don't know what's going on!

    That you can send to yourself indicates it's not the phone, or your settings. I'd contact Telcel, as the issue makes little sense.

    Coffee Shampoo hello and welcome to Crackberry!!

    I've not had this happen to me - but I'll try and help by getting you to look at some settings:

    Options

    Security

    Firewall

    Is Enable ticked or unticked?

    Are any messages blocked?

    Exceptions - anything ticked?

    Errors - anything blocked?

    If you want to delete anything that is blocked then press the menu and look through the Options.

    Let me know how you go .....

    Make sure your service center number is correct. AT&T's is +13123149810. Dunno any other carrier's, but that info should be available on Google.

    Hello and welcome to crackberry.
    the best thing to do is to contact your carrier first and ask them about it..

    Hello guys, I appreciate your help and your comments. I had already done everything you said and I fixed the problem, or my carrier did anyway.
    They had to reboot the SMS service and after I turned off and on the device it started to work!

    So, again, thank you guys!
    Cheers~

    I had the same problem on a separate BB7 BlackBerry. Somehow the settings in Text Messages were accidently sent to "Packet Switched" instead of "Circuit Switched" - setting it back fixed it.
