I recently tried to send a text message on my phone using the etisalat network service provider but all i could got back was a FAILED DELIVERED MESSAGE.
I checked the recipient’s number to make sure i didn’t made a mistake in which the number was okay, and am also sure i still have the etisalat mobile credit. After a THOROUGH SEARCH, i found out it was because of the etisalat message centre number nigeria settings in my device!
Generally, there are only 2 MAJOR reasons that could cause a mobile text to fail in deliver and that is either the recipient’s number is incorrect or there is insufficient mobile credit to deliver the message.
But in this case when there is mobile credit on your phone and the recipient’s number is correct, then there is 85% probability that the fault lies with the TEXT MESSAGE SETTINGS which is usually the centre number.
