Korean Samsung Galaxy S3 mini, unable to send SMS on US mobile networks?

I came back with this phone and got on Smart Talk and then Family mobile, both operated by T-Mobile. I used to do technical support for cellphones, so I knew to do a master reset and then I called the provider to get the correct APN and SMS settings for data and text messages to work. Not only am I limited to just speeds for data, I am unable to send out SMS. I can receive them fine, I just can't send them out. I called the provider and double checked all the settings and they did a ticket. Afterwards, I placed my SIM card into a T-Mobile phone, and I was able to text just fine. As soon as I put it back in my phone, I could not send text. I even disabled the roaming auto-dialer, thinking that it could be preventing my messages from going out. Nothing has worked. The phone was bought unlocked. So it should be able to work on any network. I don't understand why this is not working. To not have text messaging is very detrimental to relationships in this day and age. Help.

While the phone is unlocked, it actually sounds like a firmware problem. Many times, phone firmware is specific to a particular region or area. One of the most common problems with the wrong firmware is that the phone won't send text messages. There are also hidden menu codes on many Korean phone models, which are used to lock phones on Korean networks, as you are no doubt aware. Have you tried any of these codes? Many people with Korean phones report the same problems, and often these problems are carrier specific, with T-Mobile being the one most people have problems with.

The best thing you can do would be to root your phone, and perform a fresh install of the Android Operating System, without adding anything else. Then, try your SIM and see if you can send messages. After that, assuming you can send messages, install one App at a time until you find the culprit. This way you'll still be able to use your phone, and can just skip whichever app isn't compatible with your Korean model Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini.
