Ask a question


I'm unable to send SMS with my Xperia Mini, but still I can make calls. What can be done to solve this issue?


  • Your phone is configured by default to send and receive SMS.
  • If one of the following parameters is missing, the service will no longer work.
  • From the idle screen:
  • Press the CALL button.
  • Using the keyboard VIRTUAL dial *#*#4636#*#
  • Press *
  • Tap on SMSC
  • Using the keyboard VIRTUAL call "xxx xxxxxxxx" (the messaging center number).
  • Press OK
  • Press UPDATE
  • Your Setup is Complete!
  • Press the MENU key to get back to idle screen.
