@lauren_mather

it may have changed back to o2 (gg) automaticaly and thats you working again because if you we're still on the tmobile you wouldn't be able to send or receive txts so thats you updated to the message centre and your txts will work fine now

Hello, I'm not sure if this is a different issue, I am not receiving all text messages, this began happening on the 16th, I put my sim in a different phone the reverted back and got some of my text messages however not all of them. Some new texts made it through, then the problem seems to be happening again. I've tried turning phone off and on, then again doing this without the sim in the phone and I've tried the manual roam, initially my phone said the network was too busy, then it managed to find different networks. Should the old unreceived texts appear? I am unsure what to do next and would appreciate any advice. Many thanks, Denty

tried that afraid it didn't work, say this phone was unlocked from orange does anyone know if I do a master reset is it going to lock my phone so the giff gaff sim don't work. I just curious because it may be worth a shot

was your phone unlocked from orange because a master reset shouldn't lock the network again it will stay unlocked now so a master reset will be fine

For the last 10 days or so my texts are failing to be sent (going to outbox).

I have tried the suggested solution of manual roam (http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/manual-roam/m-p/3345471#M32502),  but my phone - Nokia 2730 classic - doesn't have these options.

Can anyone offer me an alternative solution?
