Hi, I got a new pixl 6 phone/SIM yesterday and tried to send a text this morning and it came up Error 42.  Hubby tried to send me a text too and not received that.

 

Checked the smsc number and that seems correct, tried to see if there are any network problems - nothing unusual,  it's a brand new SIM - so can't be that, nothing looks disabled but not sure I'm checking in the right places

 

Any ideas/help much appreciated?

@Swest70 

Is this a new contract or an upgrade?

If an upgrade, did you activate the sim Guide: Sim Swap: a mini guide 2017 update 

Are calls working OK?

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
