    SimpleMobile = Free Msg: Unable to send message - Message Blocking is active

    This never happened until I added this last card. About 50% of the time I get this annoying message when I try to text someone. I have to resend the text and wait to see it finally went through. I emailed simple(lol) and called. One the phone the guy basically had no idea what to tell me and finally settled with "everything showed ok on our side" and not to call back until 3 days passed.

    Ok, no conditional call forwarding so google voice is pretty much out of the question in terms of unified voice mail. I get it.

    No short codes for google calender and other stuff, I get it , fine.

    But if simple stuff like txt messaging is going to be a probem I'm going to have to look elsewhere

    I'm surprised this hasn't been posted before, I talked to 2 others locally that are having the same problem - one my cousin who I convinced to drop tmobile, so I'm looking like a tool a little to him.

    The 'no short codes' is a plan killer for me. I don't see why they can't authorize a handful of short codes such as Twitter, Yahoo, Google, Live, etc etc.

    Hey I am having the same exact problem. I just purchased a HTC G2 and it is doing the same thing. At first I thought it was this call blocking app gone bad but even after i uninstalled it the problem persisted. I called simple mobile and they said I should contact the manufactor of the phone. But now that I have read this im sure its a Simple Mobile problem. Did you ever find out how to avoid this problem but any chance.

    That same issue also happened to me lately this month when I reup. Last couple month was all fine. Now I cant even text 100% of the time. All msg are blocked no matter which phone I use, (Sony Ericsson, Samsung Galaxy S 4G, and IPhone 3GS) all wont work.

    Simple Mobile sucks

    I know I'm bumping an old thread, but does this problem still exist? I just put my wife on SimpleMobile (she was ok with slow data speeds) but apparently is not ok with not being able to send/receive texts from short codes.. any short code. The website indicates 'reboot your phone' and then call customer service... which I told her to do, but when you are a GSM carrier I imagine they are going to just say 'its your phone's fault'.. even though it shouldn't be (I gave her my old G2X which worked fine on direct Tmobile prepaid)

    According to Simple's Facebook site they were asking for short code requests that they could implement so apparently short codes are not universal yet.
