Hi Everyone,

Is anyone else having problems sending a text message??? Cos' I am. I have a Telecom mobile and it won't send text messages. It is a 025 one. Nokia 5125 and I have had it for over a year and it has had no problems sending text messages since I got it. It is currently connected to the Digital network (cos' it's displaying the D up the top) but it won't send text messages to anyone. I have tried sending text messages to all my friends and it won't work and I have even tried sending one to myself.

So is anyone else having any problems with Telecom's 025 network??

P.S. If it helps I'm in the South Island's West Coast. Also I have 4/4 bars for reception and battery is fully charged.

Are you on prepay? Do you have prepay credit available?

Yeah I'm on prepay and I have credit. I've got $13.40 (just checked) so I should be able to send them.

Yeah I found out why. I rang telecom. I was on hold for about 10 minutes before I got dealt with. I got your 1st in the queue for the entire 10 minutes. They said that I had a text block on my phone which blocked me from sending text messages. STUPID NETWORK!!! I was told to ring back today between 9 - 5 so that the technician could change it. So I can finally text message. My life is back to normality. (BTW if you haven't realised I'm a student and I text a lot).
