Check Your SMSC

If your SMS messages have suddenly stopped, or if you can't send them at all, there is something wrong: Your SMSC (Message Center Number) is not valid. You need to change it to a valid message center number, so you can send your SMS successfully. There are many ways to help you in this regard. Either go to your SMS settings, search for "Message Center Number" and change it, or just follow these steps:

Other Issues

Let's suppose you have done all this, followed all the steps, but came down to one step and got stuck there - Message Center Number. There is no special, magical number that you need to know. No matter what happens, you can simply call your network provider and ask him for the Message Center Number. A customer service representative would be able to provide you with all the details, including the number. Besides not being able to send a SMS from their Korean version of S2, people have also complained about not being able to send long SMS (messages longer than 80 or 90 characters). Instead of going through the painstaking task of breaking down your long message into many shorter texts, you can simply get help from SMS applications. Some of the famous Android SMS apps that can help you with your long texts are:

These applications can help you send long texts as well as MMS without any issues. However, if you still encounter some problems (which you shouldn't by the way), then all you need to do is to configure the Message Center Number on these apps as well. There is a possibility that these apps don't have the valid Message Center Number in their settings. For this purpose, just go into the message settings of these apps and you'll know what to do. Happy texting!

I'm using Korean SKy vega racer a770k and I'm not able to send SMS for than 90 words. How can I resolve it?

To bypass the 90 characters SMS limit on your Sky Vega Racer a770k, please do the following.

  • Connect your Sky Vega Racer a770k to the internet.
  • On your Apps list, locate and open Play Store.
  • Search for Go SMS Pro.
  • Select it from the search result and then tap on Install.
  • Once the app is installed, you can now use Go SMS Pro as your default SMS application and you should now be able to send an SMS message with more than 90 characters.

Unfortunately on your device there is no way to write a message with more characters that they allow.

My Korean sky mobile lte didn't sent messages above 80 characters.

I also installed go SMS pro still not working. Kindly help me solve the problem.

How can I fix SMS problem in Samsung Korean S2 by changing in xml file?

Tell me how can I solve this issue

Making changes in xml file usually does not work, especially if you have done that for the purpose of backup. You have to choose other methods to backup, as those are known to be more effective and will not have an effect on the other functions.

I am using the Korean version S2 in Nepal, but m suffering the problem of not sending SMS?

So what can I do to solve this problem?

This is more likely an issue with the service provider in Nepal. It is highly unlikely that it is an issue with your phone. There are cases when the service provider will only allow incoming calls and text messages and that it may need to use another port for outgoing calls and messages.

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Therefore, it is best to make an inquiry from your service provider asking why you are not able to send SMS. You can also try insert your SIM card in another phone and see whether you can send messages. If not, then it is more likely an issue with your Korean version S2, and it is advisable for you to go to an S2 service center near you. They may not be able to do the service for free because warranties don't usually cover Korean versions, but at least you are sure that you are going to a place that is knowledgeable about these devices.
