    You probably shouldn't post that kind of stuff on the internet...

     

    If you can't send messages there might be an issue with your service provider. Can you send imessages over wifi or doesn't that work either.

    Ok so is the problem restricted to iMessages or SMS too?

    I've had this happen to me before. What I did was turn imessage off then turn it back on and wait for activation.

    Ok, first things first:

     

    1) Don't share stuff like your email, phone number, phone serial number or IMEI number on the internet. It is not useful and is potentially threatening to your own self.

     

    2) These are user forums so Sprint didn't send you to us, they sent you to Apple. Call them or go to an authorised service provider in your country.

     

    Now, as far as I know, if you bought your phone from Sprint even if you paid full price, you didn't get a phone that's good to use with any operator you choose. To my understanding only Apple sells unlocked phones. That might be the reason why you're encountering issues with the SMS function, but again that's only a theory.

     

    I'm done with this thread because it doesn't seem likely your problem will be solved by any of our advice. Good luck anyway.

    SMS failures may be caused by missing or wrong message center number. At least my problem was so.

     

    try to dial *#5005*7672#

     

    This will show your operator's message center number. Verify this number.

     

    If it is missing then you need to set it by dialing

     

    **5005*7672*messagecenternumber#

     

    messagecenternumber is your operator's number.

     

    In my case(Turkcell) I dialed  **5005*7672*+905329010000#
