I have just moved to O2. My son sent me a message today but I couldn't reply to it, my text just failed to deliver.
His text showed his number started +44. I managed to text back using std format 07 number, but this showed as a completely different conversation.
Then tonight I have tried to message another contact. I change the number to start 07 before it would go. I had a reply but it said the number was from +44 and again I couldn't reply.
Can anyone tell me what's happening and what I need to do?
Check that your Settings are set correctly for you, Pay Monthly have a different message center from PAYG phones, @Nicip1 - details in here (pay particularly attention to the +44 bit:
See if that helps - if not, reply with phone model and the app you use to manage SMS messages on the phone.
The message centre number is correct. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy A12 using Messages for text. I did ring O2 for help and was told I needed to copy all my contacts to my SIM, however on doing so I now how what I call duplicates, even though only a few are recognised as duplicates when I try to automatically clean them up. I did delete a load manually too. However it says that around 280 contacts aren't on the SIM as the SIM is now full!
Details here on moving contacts from old to new smartphone without using the SIM, and how to transfer contacts from SIM to phone - if it helps, @Nicip1!
Sorry only just managed to get back the page, I keep going round in circles. My contacts have been moved from my old phone to my new phone, no issue there. But a month down the road and I am still having problems with text messages. I can send a text, then get a reply, but it shows on a completely different message stream, and I cann;t reply to it. It's driving me mental. I've actually got 4 message streams going between myself and a friend, and have to constantly search to find what they've replied to. Really not happy with this phone at all
