Phone/Network Issue?

I just got a sony ericsson k800i - inherited it from sister because she has an iphone - it was an 02 phone which came to the end of its contract.


I'm with Orange pay as you go - i duno if the sim is too old or something?

I can ring out and receive calls and receive text messages.

But I cannot SEND text messages !!

When I go to .... messaging > write new >

it should say - "text message" - but it doesn't.. it just says picture message or voice message or email - and there isn't any greyed out button either. I looked for the user guide on the website and it just says under troubleshooting:

"settings are probably missing or incorrect. - contact your network operator to find out the correct SMS service centre setting - 33 text messaging (SMS)."


whatever that means??

So the problem is I go to the orange website and its no use.

Help and technical support

You may have lost your message centre number. To check this, you should enter the text messaging options on your phone. The message centre number should be 07973 100973.


When i go to messaging there is no further options that enable me to mess around with these supposed settings.

This phone DID work fine when my sister had it - i.e with her sim card.

So it's something to do with compatibility or service ?? what to do???

Ask Orange to send you the settings via a message, then accept and activate them.
