    i have just got this handset this morning.

    i receive txt msgs fine but cant send any out.

    i called t mobile to see if they could fix the prob and they said its coz i dont have a message center number so he gave me a number 2 put in which started with a + but it wont let me put the plus sign at the start only lets me put in numbers?

    the guy at t mobile said it was a prob with the hand set? but i can put in the + sign into a normal txt message fine just not into the message center bit?

    they are sending me a new hand set to try 2moro but i dunno if this will fix it?

    also said something about that my sim card mite be to old?

    thanks for any help

    In the number they gave you, try using '00' instead of '+' i.e instead of '+44...', use '0044...'

    It's the same on my Spica/Portal. It's weird that you can't put a plus into that field. It only wasn't an issue for me because my phone had it pre-set

    For info, you can't send receive MMS either until you setup your phone, and then send 1 MMS.

    To put a + in, just press and hold the 0 (zero) key.
