Fix Unable To Send Message And All Network Message Center Number On Android Phones.

It’s so annoying when you are unable to send messages with your Android phone. No matter what you do, you keep getting the response

Message Not Sent”


I havent had such issues with my Android phone. It was when I was still using a Nokia Symbian phone. As always, the solution was just to goto the Message settings and change the message center number. That’s it!

But, it becomes a little bit difficult on Android especially the new OS versions. I personally could not send messages on my both sims for about two days.
It was really frustrating.  The issue was where to find the message center number and then replace it. After doing some check on my phone, I found a very simple solution to the Message failing to send issue.
