Make sure the message centre on the phone setting is set to the correct number.

Open up messages. And open settings 

 

Then within there are the option to change the number.

Hi @Nokia6

 

Welcome to the EE Community. 🙂

 

I see @BrendonH has offered some brilliant advice already.

 

Did that fix your text messages?

 

Please let me know if you need some more help.

Actually, the menu screen wasn't teriffically intuitive, and the only place I managed to find the message centre number was by 'dialing' *#*#4636#*#* and hitting 'refresh'.

Apparently, though - according to EE Customer Services - Carphone Warehouse hadn't properly registered my sim/phone number, so I'll go back to them today and see what happens!

Thanks for getting back to us @Nokia6

 

At least we know what is causing this. Let us know how you get on once you've spoken to Carphone Warehouse.
