I try to send an sms message and it runs to the near end of the status sending bar "sending" then gives me a message "error sending message". I have text set up on my account. is this a config setting issue ?

TIA

Are you having this problem when you try to reply to someone? Before one of my friends switched phones I had a problem replying to them like you described. I'd have to delete all the messages to them, and then start a new message for it to work.

Try that...

It should work once you put in your SIM card...I would contact Rogers/Fido in regards to it. Don't tell them you are using an iPhone or they will not help you. You might just need a reset on your account settings...As well, do you have TXT messaging on your account?

Do you have the area code in the number? Rogers SMS won't work without an area code even if it's to a local number.

Use the GSM coded phone number to send, e.g., +1-416-555-1212. If you don't know how to type "+" check your phone's manual.

Alternatively, Rogers employs 1000s of people whose job involves answering questions like this. It's a free call from your cell, *611.
