I have two Nokia phones, 1100 and 1101. A friend has a Samsung GTE2121B. Text messages from one of the Nokia phones to the Samsung get through but the other is reported on the Samsung screen as failed. Voice contact is okay. How can we fix this fault? or incorrect setting?
Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

To clarify, the Samsung can text one phone but not the other correct?

Not so. When the text is sent by one of the Nokias to the Samsung the Samsung screen reports that the text message has failed. When the text is sent from the other Nokia phone is received okay.

ok, can the samsung text the phone that can not text it?
And which of the nokias is it?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes the Sumsung can text to the Nokia 1101

ok, if the Samsung texts the Nokia and they reply to that actual text, what is the exact message that appears on the Samsung?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Something like (sorry I am unable to be exact, it is not my phone) "Text message failed"

ok, ask the person with the Nokia id they are set to send MMS or are just sending plain text messages.
I think they are sending an MMS and this can be the problem.
Let me know please.

I have gone to Message character support, it was on Full and is now Reset to reduced. I do not actually understand your proposal. It was Full in BOTH Nokia phones.

Ok, now try to send a text.
Does the Samsung now receive it?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I am now calling the Samsung owner. Sorry if there is a delay.

Its no problem Mike

Hello Richard. I now have a resolution. The Samsung telephone owner took her telephone to a telephone shop today. She had been told previously that it could not block. This was incorrect. Accidentally one of my Nokias was listed after six blanks as the seventh blocked number and therefore was not visible on the first screen full. The matter was settled in 5 minutes.

Good to hear Mike, though strange they got the error on the Samsung as they would never see anything with blocked numbers
If you need anything else, let me know
Thank you
