Hi Ian. Welcome to justanswer.

Which network's services are you using?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm on PAYG
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Is it vodafone?

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Go to Settings- Network Settings. Try changing the network type to GSM.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Plus Net
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Have you tried changing the network settings?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, but if you remotely connect is that £19 in addition to what I've paid so far?
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

I was asking about who is your mobile network carrier? Is it O2, EE, vodafone, virgin etc?

Yes it would be extra but don't choose that as this is your network's issue and accesing your computer won't resolve it.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Orange?!
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Go to Message app. Select settings there. Tell me what options are you getting.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is no Message "App." It's not a smart phone.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Go to your message inbox. Select options. Do you see settings there? Find MESSAGE CENTER NUMBER there.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is no "options" in my inbox. If there's a message it comes up otherwise it just says Empty.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

When you select message icon, tell me what options do you get.

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Do you see a list of options like Write message, inbox, outbox, draft etc?

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.
