Hi. Try restarting your phone.
Then if you still have issues.
See here.

1. Go to settings
2. Then go to mobile networks
3. Select a network other than
o2 (gg) i.e orange or vodafone.
4. Come out of settings and it
should say no network coverage
or something
5. Repeat the process this time
choose o2 (gg)

The message centre number in your message settings should be +447802002606



Also try deleting old text messages to free up your phones memory.

Hi,

Text problems of various sorts are usually solved by performing a manual roam.

 

it's a simple process that only takes a few minutes. Firstly, go to the settings of your phone, then "more settings", then "mobile networks". then "network operators".

 

select any network other than giffgaff/o2. after a few seconds it will tell you it has failed to connect. now reselct giffgaff.

 

Doing this sends a far more powerful signal to the network than under normal use or even a reboot, and it cures many text faults caused by a network connection issue.

Re: Huawei Y300

Check your messages settings. It's very likely that you have certain numbers on your blocked list

Are the people that you're not getting replies from all on the same network? it is possible the issue is on their network if they are.

Alternatively, check the settings of the messaging app to ensure they aren't included in the blacklist (blocked numbers) list.

Re: Huawei Y300

This is quite an odd one.

Try going to the phone settings, then to application manager. Scroll across till you are looking at the "all" list. Now scroll down the list til you find "messaging". Press on messaging to open it's properties. Press delete data and if it's highlighted then also delete cache. That should revert the app back to it's factory settings, hopefully clearing whatever glitch is going on.
Or you could try using a different messaging app. There are several available on the playstore. "Go sms pro" seems most popular and has good ratings.
