I can't send texts to one number, they come up as "pending" and then never send... I sent a text to myself to see of it was my phone or something but I received the text fine... I called the number and it worked so I know the phone is on and has signal... Why are they not getting my texts? I have a Nokia (don't know what just one of the old xpressmusic phones) and I saved all the settings giff gaff sent to me so what do I do now?

try doing a manual roam
1. Go to settings
2. Then go to mobile networks
3. Choose a network other than
o2 (gg) i.e orange or t-mobile
4. Then come out of settings
and it should say no network
coverage or something
5. Repeat the process and this
time choose o2 (gg)
this will update your number to
the message centre and should
help your txts

Thank you, I've just done this, sent a text but will have to see if it works, they may have turned their phone off after I called them at half 1.. Lol

Go to settings, go to network, choose any network apart from GG, come out and repeat the process and choose O2 or Giffgaff and restart the phone.

I think my phone is too old school to find the service centre number... It says the message centre in use is giff gaff but there's no number anywhere and no way of viewing/changing it. Messages are still pending and failing Smiley Sad

Is it just the one number or are all texts failing (apart from the one you sent to yourself?)

You do know that you don't get delivery reports with a Giffgaff sim. Justsaying. All sms messages will say pending.
