iPhone SMS : Error sending message

September 17th, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Just back from my little trip to NYC, I love the City, it rocks !
Imagine my frustration when I wanted to send a sms to my homies, and it didn’t work !
Wtf ! Hopefully, the fix is simple, you need to configure the sms center number.

First you need to be sure you have the right sms center number configured.
To read it, dial the following sequence : *#5005*7672# and hit call.
You should get similar message:

Setting Interrogation Succeeded
Service Center Address
+32495002530

The number you see is valid for Mobistar operator in Belgium.
You need to check with your operator to get the right number.
Once you got the right sms center number, you gotta put it in your iPhone.

Make sure you encode the number with the ‘+’ sign in front and not ’00’.
I had it configured with ’00’ and it didn’t work.

Ok now let’s suppose that your sms center number is +32495002530,
you will need to dial the following sequence : **5005*7672*+32495002530#
and hit call. You should get the following message :

Setting SucceededService
Center Address
No Address

Tip: To dial the ‘+’ sign, hold the ‘0’ until it prints the ‘+’.
