    Unhappy Confusing Problem with Message Centre (SMSC) Number

    My rooted Galaxy Note sometimes stops sending sms messages. Incoming is ok. When I check the Phone Information using the *#*#4636#*#* string and try to enter the number in the SMSC: field, and then click on Update, it returns "Update Error". When I hit "Refresh" without entering a number, all it returns is "00". I'm assuming the refresh button is supposed to return the number stored on the SIM card.

    I checked with my telco today and they confirmed the correct SMSC number is 96197777 or this number with the country code prefix, +65 96197777. (I'm in Singapore). When I checked my wife's phone, this is also the number she has on her SIM card.

    So, I decided to try a trick I read about on the net last night. I put my SIM card in the wife's phone, and manually entered 96197777. Then put the SIM card back into the Note and hit refresh (the SMSC field is always blank by default until I hit refresh). The number that came up was 06915669917777!

    I don't recognise this number at all but it works. I put my SIM card back into the wife's phone and it still shows the number I entered - 96197777. Can anyone tell me WTF is going on? How is is possible to use a different number?

    I don't know if this problem has been caused by rooting the phone.

    Dear sacentre,

    You need to bring your phone and SIM card back to the telco where you bought the SIM card for configuration. Please back up especially your contact no.
