Cant send texts

I recently upgraded my sim card from a orange one to a 4GEE sim yesterday but ever since I've done that I can't send text messages, mobile data works fine i can make and receive calls I've tried sending one word messages and whole paragraphs but nothing seems to work I've also checked the message centre settings and all them are as they should be anyone any ideas?

Can you if it just says message sending failed?

If so can you try installing GO SMS and choosing the customized SMSC option. Place the SMSC number within there and give it a go.

There seems to be an issue with some firmwares accepting the SMSC number. I have noticed this on many Samsung devices.

It seems to be the PDU format used.

Try this and post back. Hopefully it should work.

No it doesn't say message sending failed the progress bar just keeps spinning round indicating it's still in progress but I never get a notification saying it's failed or anything

Re: Cant send texts

Have you tried another messaging app?

Plenty of them in the play store or even Google Hangouts can do sms. There is an option within hangouts to enable the SMS functionality.
