I have an iphone 3g, its updated to 3.0.1
and for the past 3 weeks, I cant sent text mesages, I can receive them but people just get a message from me that they cant read, and............. its not from my phone number!
does anybody have any ideas?

    Call your Canadian service provider. It could be you don't have SMS activated for your account or some other carrier-related issue. The phone number mix up definitely sounds like something only your carrier can deal with.

    BTW -- when you place phone calls do they show up as coming from your number??

    my text messaging was working fine till 3 weeks ago, then it just stopped
    could it happen like this and be the carrier's fault?
    thanks for the info

    If you have not done a Restore, you should give that a try -- since several bad things started "three weeks ago".
