Hi - I'm in the first few days of Desire ownership and there's a Legend in the house as well (both bought here from einfo and on Vodafone prepay SIMs). The only recurring issue on both handsets seems to be when replying to incoming texts - something is removing the country code and leaving an invalid number, and the reply won't go out. Has anybody else seen this?

Details: The text comes in from the right phone number, which shows as "+6421..." when you view message details. The outgoing message fails instantly with "Unable to send message after multiple attempts", and if you look at the message details the +64 prefix has been removed and nothing put back in its place.

I've tried entering the contact's number in several different ways but it doesn't seem to have fixed the problem yet. Creating a new text from scratch to the contact works fine. MMS seems to work OK, I've used the APN details from another thread on here to get that working.

Cheers,

 Julian.

Hi,

I've got the legend also and have no problems replying to SMS. I'm on TelstraClear though (over vodafone).

If you want, in Settings, can you confirm what you've set under Wireless & networks / Mobile networks / Network Mode. And under Access Point Names what your default APN settings are? And maybe the MMS APN setting also.

Network mode is "GSM/WCDMA auto". I suppose that should probably just be GSM.

The APN's are exactly the same as this post: http://blog.rabidgremlin.com/2009/09/16/vodafone-nz-settings-for-android-phones/


Name: Vodafone NZ
APN: www.vodafone.net.nz
Proxy: <not set>
Port: <not set>
Username: <not set>
Password: <not set>
Server: <not set>
MMSC: null
MMS Proxy: <not set>
MMS Port: <not set>
MCC: 530
MNC: 01
APN Type: default


Name: Vodafone NZ-MMS
APN: live.vodafone.com
Proxy: <not set>
Port: <not set>
Username: <not set>
Password: <not set>
Server: <not set>
MMSC: http://pxt.vodafone.net.nz/pxtsend
MMS Proxy: 172.30.38.3
MMS Port: 8080
MCC: 530
MNC: 01
APN type: mms

Cheers,

 JUlian.

My network mode is also set to GSM / WCDMA so I'd leave it as that.

The only difference I see is you have 'null' for the MMSC Vodafone NZ APN, can you change this to 'not set'. Maybe null is interpreted as a value, can you change it?

Hope you figure it out.

Yeah I'll try that, originally I had it as 'not set' when mucking about with getting MMS working, but then I noticed that the successful settings said 'null' so I put that in. Will remove.

Thanks,

 Julian.

Progress of a kind - installing Handcent SMS seems to fix the problem! It still removes the +64 from the outgoing message but it sticks a 0 back on the front to make it all work right.

I'm beginning to suspect that there's maybe something dodgy in some of my contacts; I've been dragging many of them around for years now, through several Palms and Treos, two countries, various versions of Outlook and Palm Desktop (and now Gmail) and across several SIMs. I suppose it's conceivable they could have picked up electronic lurgi of some kind. Maybe I need to delete and recreate a few from scratch.

Thanks for the replies though, I was becoming very despondent at the thought that a device which seemed otherwise near-perfect could have such a horrible flaw!

 Julian.
