@rustynailzfrank APN settings have nothing to do with being able to send texts.
It is for MMS which SMS is often converted to. My friend just activated a few hours ago and her texts wouldn't send out until she fixed the APN settings.
@DanielleMarie Incorrect, SMS does not require MMS to work. You can send out a SMS without MMS
MMS is only required when sending picture messages.
I'm not sure what is going on...I tried everything but just can't send a text message...and I definitely have unlimited incoming/outgoing text msgs....but outgoing is not working...becoming frustrating
Updating IOS might be a good idea.
Try your SIM card in a different phone might also help determine whether it is a hardware issue versus Public mobile service issue. If PM service issue, will need to wait for moderator help.
Other suggestions: (not sure whether you tried)
1. Network reset
2. Turning on data
3. Factory reset
Then it is an account issue. You will need to wait for moderator help. Expect 1-2 day response time.
A few more things to try if account issue. The lost/stolen phone trick or manually loading $1 into your account. These tricks seem to reset your SIM card/plan.
If that does not work, sorry, I am out of ideas.
To report your phone lost/stolen. Login to your account. Choose Plans and Add-ons tab. Then choose Lost/Stolen Phone tab. The choose Suspend Service tab. Logout. Wait few minutes. Login in and report your phone found. Reboot phone.
Ive emailed the mods in a private msg..hopefully they can fix the issue for me...just seems odd I can receive msgs but can't send out
