Currently Being ModeratedApr 21, 2010 9:43 AM (in response to indierocklad)Does this happen when you initiate the text? Have you tried to reply to a text they sent, and does that go through? Or, does it not go through no matter what? Have you been able to text anyone else that uses T-mobile and those texts go through?
I would believe it was not a problem on your end, but you could always perform a reset, holding the power button and the home button together until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the slide to power off screen. That reboots the phone without losing any data. If it will still not work, I suggest having that person contact T-mobile and see if there is some type of block that is causing your text not to go through. You could contact T-mobile, however since you are not a customer, it would be a little more difficult for them to diagnose the problem. I'd say your friend shoudl call them.HP p6140f; HP laptop, Windows Vista, 3G 16GB iPhone, 1st Gen 16GB iPhone, 30GB Video iPod , Microsoft Office Pro 2007
Currently Being ModeratedApr 21, 2010 11:25 AM (in response to ChrisJ4203)I can send the text, whether in reply or as a normal message; and it appears to go through. No problems or issues seem to exist according to my phone. Because of this I am very much in agreement with you on your point that it is likely to be their phone/network...
Not too sure about other T-mobile users as I'm not certain which of my contacts are with T-mobile (most people seem to use O2, Orange or Vodafone!)
I have reset my phone and this made no difference to my SMS attempts
I thought it might be a number block too, but phone calls get through fine and surely that would be prevented if my number was accidentally blocked?
Thanks for your help I'll get my friend to contact T-mobile tonight...iPhone 3G, iPhone OS 3.1.3
Currently Being ModeratedApr 21, 2010 11:27 AM (in response to indierocklad)I understand it appearing to go through on your phone, what I was inquiring was if it was received if it was a reply, versus you initiating the text. Again, if it doesn't go through either way, I still believe it is on their end.
