why did my Nokia Lumia 635 stop sending and receiving text messages

Question: why did my Nokia Lumia 635 stop sending and receiving text messages

My Nokia Lumia 635 was purchased unlocked and I set it up with straight talk, it worked great for 2 months and I noticed I couldn't send my fiancee text messages but she could send them to me and I could messages everyone else.my service expired and I renewed the service and asked straight talk if they could fix the texting problem, now I can't send or receive text messages from anyone. I did a hard reset and redid all the apn,port,URL settings for straight talk as I did when I first got the phone and still nothing. Someone said to replace the SIM card. Any ideas or solutions would be greatly appreciated

Preferred Solution: why did my Nokia Lumia 635 stop sending and receiving text messages

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Receiving calls is not a single problem, but I can't receive texts. does anyone have the same issue? Or has anybody solvee this problem theirselves?

Answer:Why is my Nokia Lumia 625 so slow receiving text messages?

Text lag and failure to receive are carrier issues...
If the problem has been ongoing, ask for a new SIM or ask for a reprovision (which is having your account access to the network refreshed).

My lumia 630 has stopped receiving text messages, I can send messages to other phones but cant receiving messages. Phone worked fine for about a month

Answer:Why has my phone stopped receiving text messages (Lumia 630)?

It may be an issue with your carrier or your SIM card.
If you can send SMS, there is no fail message and recipients can verify they did in fact get the text, then your phone is configured properly and it is not hardware/software related to your handset.
SMS text lag is a known issue and is usually carrier side. I would consult with them and ask for A) a re-provision or B) a new SIM
Provisioning is when your account accesses are granted carrier side. On CDMA it is one method, on GSM another... A Re-Provision is the resend of those authorizations to where they reside in the system. A do over. LOL. To get a reprovision done usually requires escalating up the ladder in tech support. Most customer service types will have no clue what you are talking about. Request a help ticket and get the escalation process started.

My phone does not send all of my text messages, but they show as if sent. I also do not receive texts that have been sent and if I do it is well after they have been sent. My phone has been dying very quickly and has been pretty warm.

Answer:Nokia Lumia 900 not sending or receiving a majority of texts. Battery dies fast and phone is warm.

It sounds like the battery is on its way out. I experienced that issue with a BlackBerry 9000 several years ago and bought a new battery. Unfortunately, the Lumia 900 has a sealed battery, which probably isn't worth replacing at this time, especially with the new 635 available for around $60 without a contract on Amazon.com.

Hey guys,
I am not able to find any information on this. Maybe it isn't possible.
I have a Nokia Lumia 1020 on Windows Phone 8.10.14176.243 and I have Cyan.
I am wanting to know if there was any way of transferring my text messages from the 1020 to my computer. I could go through and just do screenshots, but that would take too long. The reason I am wanting to find this out is because of the possibility of taking my former landlord to small claims court and I may be able to give the text messages as evidence.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Just to note, the "transfer my data" app doesn't give me the option of transferring my text messages to my computer. That may be due to my phone or my computer. I'll have to test with someone else's computer.

Answer:How do I retrieve deleted text messages from my Nokia lumia 610?

Hi I have a Nokia E63 sometimes when I receive a text message the phone tells me it cannot receive the message because the memory is full, and prompts me to delete items. Before, I had 250ish messages in my inbox, so I deleted them, but the prompt appeared again after 100 messages were received, and after they were deleted it appeared after 50. I have searched and searched through my phone and have deleted everything I can, pictures, video and sounds, yet the prompt appeard this morning with only 8 messages in my inbox. This suggests that it is filling its memory with something that i'm not aware of. Please help me out, I've only had it for three weeks its a bit of a shame. Cheers, tubes

My husband recently tried re-installing Windows Live OneCare -- we'd had it installed previously, but he'd had to replace his hard drive because it crashed and then had to re-install all programs. We experienced a problem registering Live OneCare, so we were working with Microsoft Tech Support to resolve that issue. One of the steps that they had us try in troubleshooting was to download and run a registry cleaner. We were finally able to install Live OneCare -- still having problems registering, but that's an issue for Microsoft Tech Support to help us resolve -- but now Outlook on my husband's computer is unable to receive e-mail from our ISP's mail server. He can send messages just fine, but not receive them. The error message he's getting is 0X800CCC90. Does this problem ring a bell with any of you? Our ISP has been unable to fix the problem. This is quite frustrating. . .

Thanks for any suggestions you could provide. =)

Hi,

I have the FCU installed and I have an iPhone with the latest iOS.

I've gone through tutorials here and elsewhere and even though my iPhone was successfully setup, when I try to send a text message, all I get is that "I'll send that using your phone. It may take a minute depending on connectivity." message.

All the tutorials I found and followed are all pre-FCU but are obviously close enough for me to perform, but I'm thinking there must still be some setting or the other I am missing? The Cortana app on my iPhone is newly-installed so it's not a question of it needing an update.

Does anyone have this working with iOS?

I'm part of a small website, and I'd like to be able to send out text messages when we have something important to say. I assume the text messaging available from gmail will work for this, since I will probably get under 50 people subscribing, and only be sending out one or two texts a month. However, there is talk about sending out texts to subscribers on a much larger site I am a part of. We would likely need to send out multiple texts per day, to any where from a few hundred to a couple thousand people. Right now there are just under 6,000 members on the site, but I assume most will not sign up for alerts. For the larger site, they would likely need a program that is fairly complex, as they want subscribers to be able to choose how often they are sent texts, and what sections of the website they want to subscribe to for alerts. Is there any kind of program that would accomplish something like this, and not be extremely expensive?

I would strongly urge you to make all necessary backups and flash a clean copy of the OS and Firmware using Lumia Software Recovery Tool found here: How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Microsoft - USA
This will rule out any software issue. Test it without restoring the backup and if all is smooth then you can do a Factory Reset and restore your backups. (Settings > about > reset your phone) If everything stays smooth great!!! If something then gets glitchy after the backup is restored you need ot look at your most recently installed Apps for the troublemaker.
If the issue is still present after the flash and before the backup restore, then you have a hardware issue and should seek a warranty repair.

So this Windows phone doesn't allow users to send photos over the Skype app, and doesn't show the hyperlinks when someone on Skype shares a photo with you? How is it even possible that competitors have better service for a product Microsoft owns?
Just wow....

Answer:Nokia Lumia 920 w/ windows 8.1 Skype doesn't allow picture sending or even recognize sharing?

I am sure Microsoft will allow photo sharing in coming updates with windows phone 8.1 for skype.

Check if a soft reset will help.http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/ho...start-my-phone

About a month ago, i did an update on my phone. After the last update it will not let me send or recieve picture messages. Ive pretty much tried to do everything possible to get it back, but nothing is working. I dont want to do a master reset because i dont want to loose everything in my phone. Could some please help me, i would really appreciate it soooo much. Thankyou

Answer:Why isn't my Nokia lumia 520 letting me send or receive pictures messages?

Picture messages or MMS require data and the gateway is controlled by your carrier.
Do a web search for "Lumia 520 <carrier name> mms settings" to find the best advice on what mms settings you need for your carrier.
Without more specifics, no one can say what the settings should be. You can find mms settings by using Settings > cellular + SIM > SIM settings > add mms apn

Answer:Why can't I receive photos that are sent to me via a text message on my Lumia Nokia 630?

If it's a photo it'll be sent via MMS, so you need to make sure you've got MMS enabled on your carrier account and the MMS settings on your phone (carrier will supply this info, usually automatically straight to phone).
I would of expected a web link to have been displayed instead to view it via a browser.
Hope this helps.

Hi all
I have bought a new Lumia 630 from an iPhone 5 and as a whole liking the phone to be honest. But having one problem and that is when i transferred all my contacts from my IOS device some of my contacts i am not able to text and i do not know why and is getting quite annoying as i cannot receive texts from those individuals
thanks in advance

Answer:text message contacts not working from IOS nokia lumia 639

Did you turn off imessage on your iPhone 5? I'm betting the contacts you are having issues with are iPhones. Try turning off imessage on the iPhone. If that doesn't work you might have to make some changes to your Apple account. And if that doesn't work. Have your friends make sure they do not have your phone # setup as an iPhone. I know this because one of my friend has went thru this issue.. imessage is a pain in the **** when going to a different OS.
Here is an article back from May about apple getting sued over it. I haven't seen or heard anything since. Apple sued over disappearing iMessage texts sent to Android users - CNET

Every now and again the issue is happening - when I go onto the text messages and click in the box to begin typing a message, the phone freezes and turns itself off - sometimes also when accessing emails.
I have been all through the forums and tried what has been suggested, but I am not having much luck.
Does anyone have anything new to try and solve this once and for all?!
Very very annoying!!!

Answer:Microsoft Nokia Lumia is turning itself off when going onto a text message.

What have you tried?
A soft reset? Checking you have enough free space in your internal storage? A hard reset? Windows Device Recovery Tool? Remove your SD card (if installed).
Failing all that perhaps your phones hardware is faulty.
P.S what model phone do you have?

Alright, I just picked up a new Icon this week, and have already noticed a bizarre little bug in the Messaging App.
Whenever I message my friend (he has a Droid Bionic) anything with a line break (i.e. any time I press enter), the message that he receives does not the contain the break, or even a space. This makes it so the whole message appears as a single paragraph when it should be several.
Any idea as to why this issue would arise? I'm on Windows 8.1, he's on 4.1.2 JellyBean.
We've already checked with Verizon, they have no idea.
Any help would be appreciated.

The feature appears to have not come out for older, WP7 devices.
Your best bet now is to see if your service provider can block calls on their end, before it hits your phone. (because some carriers offer that service)

There is no way to save your sms messages to your SIM card or anything like that on WP.

Have a read through that (probably closer to the end which may be more relevant) and see if you can get your SMS from Outlook.

How do you set a text message repeat until read tone on a Nokia Lumia 530.

Answer:How do you set a text message repeat until read tone on a Nokia Lumia 530?

You mean the Alert tone? You don't.
The Live Tile shows a count of how many unread messages you have even in smallest size and the Notification Center displays the alert until you read the message or physically remove the notification.
?But having your phone constantly beep and boop at you? Nope.

I have just purchased a Nokia Lumia 635 and have 50mb of internet usage per month via my internet/mobile package. I would like to know how I make sure my Nokia doesn't connect to the internect when I don't want it to. I am worried incase it updates apps etc and uses up all my internet allowance. (This is the first mobile phone I've had so don't understand all this technology.)

Answer:How do I stop my Nokia Lumia 635 connecting to the internet?

First I hope the 50 is 500.
Go to store > push the three dots ... > tap settings > switch "Only get update over WiFi " ON.
Furthermore check data sense it helps to control the usage.
Also check apps you use to dissable updates over data. See in settings of these apps.
And you always can switch if the data connection in settings > mobile+SIM

I dropped my Nokia Lumia on the ground , then the touch screen didn't work so I rebooted my phone and it's been over 9 hours now so I want to stop rebooting it now , because i think no matter what I do it's not going to work again ...

Answer:How do I stop the hard reset on My Nokia Lumia 820?

Welcome to Windows Central.
The case is unclear. Are you trying to perform a hard reset on your phone as suggested by your title? If yes, and the process has started, there is no safe way to stop it.
However, in your narrative, you indicated that the screen won't respond to touch and that "no matter what [you] do it's not going to work again." Hence, not even a hard reset would fix the issue - as it is with all hardware-level failures.
You could try bringing your phone to a service center and have them diagnose the problem themselves. It's possible that you may need to have the screen of your phone replaced.

When I bought my Nokia Lumia 635, I was able to get rid of the volume warning from the beginning. There was one time that I reset my Lumia, and the volume warning still didn't show up. However, starting in May, I got this volume warning again. I tried tapping OK, like before, but after some time, it came back when I reset it for a second time! I tried to not restart my Lumia, and didn't run out of charge, so I was able to keep it on. After that, however, I still got it! How do you prevent it from appearing again? It's so annoying to have to get this volume warning again and again!

Answer:How can I stop getting the volume warning on my Nokia Lumia?

It's going to keep coming back. There's no way to permanently dismiss it. I don't know what the time range is when it pops up, but it will continue. I haven't used Windows 10 for mobile technical preview, so I'm hoping they've provided a way to dismiss it permanently there.

Any help will be appreciated :)

Answer:How do I transfer text messages from my Lumia 620 to my Note 3?

I dont think you can do that unfortunately
as it is, you can only backup and sync text messages between Windows Phones, because those hook into MS's backup services.
I don't think I've heard anything different, and if you had searched, I believe you would have found many people before you, with the same inquiry.
