    Problems with SMS text messages on HTC G2

    I have an Unlocked T-Mobile HTC G2 on Mobilicity and everythings seems to work fine except for SMS. I can recieve SMS text messages but I can't send any text. All I get is an error when I try to send texts. I can use data and surf the internet, albeit a little spotty at times but it works. Anyone out there using a G2 on Mobilicity that have SMS figured out?

    Thanks, I checked the setting and changed it to the number you suggested but it still only Receives SMS text and cannot Send SMS texts. (still shows me an error). I even tried adding the mms APN but that did nothing. Nice phone but weird that I can't send texts (yet).

    I am trying to SEND TEXT on the G2. So far I have reset to factory default and checked all the settings. The only thing that still doesn't work is Sending a TEXT. Again, receiving TEXT is working.

    Is this number different from my Voicemail centre number? The default number for the voicemail is 16478000109 and voicemail works fine. I did change it to your suggestion and voicemail still worked but still couldn't send texts. Thanks

    I seem to have problems with files through text. I see a download button, but nothing downloads and when I send things, people don't receive anything. Anyone else with the G2 have this problem?

    Anyone with a G2 also know how to save contacts to the SIM card rather the SD card?

    Thanks,
    Wilton

    Where do I change the Message Centre number on the T-Mobile HTC G2. I can change the VoiceMail number but it changes back to +16478000109 after powerup. I can't find the Message Centre settings. Thanks

    Thats great...I'm glad you guys got it working. The field for SMSC for me is blank...should I put something in there to allow me to send photo text's?

    I think it's impossible to move contacts to your SD card....or has anyone done it?

    Thanks again,
    Wil
