bugs in nokia 6600

have you experienced bugs with your nokia 6600?

just recently (after 6 months of usage), i could not send text messages (sms) with my nokia 6600. at first sms gets a "Resend" status, but eventually to "Failed". i tried sending sms with my sim from another model/phone and twas sent successfully. so i believe, something's really wrong with my phone.

what could be the problem?

now follow these steps
1. open the menu
2. go to messagig option
3. dont go to any folders and open settings for text messages.
4. select the message centre for your service
try sending msg again it would surely go.

this happens as you might have changed the sim card and used the msg srvc. the phone would have configured itself for that srvc and would be using the message centre of the same old srvc but with this card. if u still have difficulty contact me on

I followed the steps mentioned by you. But still have the same problem. I have two SIMs and use nokia 6600 when I go to another city I change the SIM card and it works fine. When I come to Bangalore where I work the SMS does not work. But I am able to receive SMS but not send them.

Please give me a solution

OK, first of all it sounds like your provider/network/carrier is blocking you, but if not I think I can help.
WARNING: What I am about to tell you will completly format your phone, so backup and texts, contacts, pictures, videos, applications because IT WILL GET DELETED!!! When you are ready simple punch in *#7370# and press yes. That will "flash" your phone to factory settings. That means it won't only reset your settings, it will reinstall the default software so it will be the same as when you bought the phone!!
Let me know if it works please!!
