SMS Problems on SPV C550

Recommended Posts

my SPV C550 is a day out of warranty and is having issues with SMS.

Basically when i recieve SMS messages (not everyone) i can see the message content in the preview, but when i open the message its blank. if try to forward the message i can read it in full, just not when i open it normally :-(

further to this lately my phone sometimes just wont send messages, not a problem with network as if i cancel compose (saving to drafts doesnt work either on these sms's) and re-type hey presto it sends?

this is the software verions i have installed

System|About reads:

Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition

Version 4.21.1088 (Build 15159.2.6.4)

Radio Version 140.299.14_0.11.10

ROM update versions:



Microsoft 4.21.15159.0


File System 4.21.15159.0

is there any updates available?

is my only option a hard reset and suck it and see? (just what i need backing up all contacts, uncerting, unlocking, re-installing tomtom etc etc)

please help

There have been no ROM updates I'm aware of and I'd be inclined to hard reset.

Using Outlook to backup your Contacts, Calendar etc is always a good idea and the occassional hard reset is inevitable. Think of it as spring cleaning.

I'm doing all of mine at the moment . It's almost like getting a new phone. ;)
