Re: Texts not being sent/received by everyone

I had a similar issue for international texting. wasn't receiving it.

I contacted the Moderator_Team and explained my situation.

They had to do a full  refresh of my account on their side and it worked.

Good luck to you.

Thanks!


Are you sending MMS (picture texts) and that isn't what they are getting?  If you aren't able to send or receive these types of texts make sure that you have your data turned on.  It doesn't consume data but it needs to be turned on.


Hey @ShawnC13 Only SMS so far, and data turned on and working

Are you able to receive calls? If you switched over your number from a different provider. Then it could be that your port is not fully completed.  Try using your old providers Simcard and see if you can send/receive a text from that.

 

You will need to get in touch with the mod team to complete the port.

start a conversation with the Public's virtual assistant, SIMon

  • Click The "?" at the bottom right corner.
    This connects to the Autobot Simon.
  • Type "Moderator" and follow the prompts to get to one.

          (CLICK on the "account-specific" question and human and submit a ticket)
           Type a message describing the problem and post.

 

OR

if you are still having issues you can contact them directly using this Moderator Team.

Make sure you enter a title and text in the body of the message describing the problem. The message will be received by the moderator team and they will respond to it. You will receive the response in your private message inbox.

 

Please note: It could take 24-48 hours for them to get back to you.

 

Cheers


Thanks for this. I've contacted the moderators. I can't put in my old SIM though because the credit has expired on it and I'm not looking to top it up any more

@lyonseoin  Are the friends that can't receive them currently using the same provider you ported out from?


@geopublic Different provider!

You have been with PM for at least 1 - 2 months.  Your account is working correctly before porting your number to PM yesterday. 

 

Did you restart your phone after porting your number to PM?

If not, it is time to restart your phone.

 

Are you getting calls and text message from some of your friends too?

Which provider were you using?

 

You account my not be provisioned correctly after porting.  Add $1 to your account may trigger PM server to provision your account again.  Good luck.


Hey there. I switched over in Jan but the activation didn't happen so I just renewed with my old company (Chatr) so I can't confirm if it worked back then before the number change (I only started using PM after that change). I have restarted the phone and am receiving calls and texts from some friends. I tried the $1 transaction. Hopefully that works

Did you call Chatr to get your account number as Chatr online does not give your your account number?

 

You need to provide your Chatr account #,  the name on your account and the phone # to be ported.  Your Chatr number must be active during the porting process.
