Go into messages and then select the settings menu. Check the message centre number is correct :

 

Message service centre settings

  • +447802000332 for Pay Monthly, or
  • +447802092035 for Pay & Go
Please use plain text.

Does this service code work?

*#*#4636#*#*

If so select Phone Information then SMSC
Samsung S3 i9305 Dual SIM. Asus Fonepad.
(HTC One M7. Samsung ATIV s. Xperia Z1.)
Note 4 (still) pre-ordered.
