Send SMS to the short 3-digit number blocked by contacts

iPhone 4 s, ios 9.3.2.   I want to send an SMS to a short number '203', but the contacts are suggested which include 203 in their phone numbers.     Therefore, I can never get to the text window to write the text.     Apart from the seizure of a contact for each short number how can I send these texts.   Thanks Nigel

Hi Nigel

After typing your 3 digit short code, ignore the suggested contacts and rather press return on the keyboard.

  • How to allow phone to send sms to the short number new

    Hi all, I sent a text message to a SpeedDial earlier (digit 5 used by the Bank, etc.). The device prompted me that sms may incur extra charges and asked me if I afford it. I accidentally hit "never allow" and "don't ask me" (these two came after another in a row), but I wanted to send messages. I tried to get the settings and the settings of the e-mail, but I can't find anything that let me allow to send messages to dial again. When I google my problems, the results that I found are mainly on Samsung orz. Samsung has an application manager to adjust the setting, but I can't find it on sony. Can someone tell me where I can change the settings to allow this type of messaging again? Thank you!

    Hi Ywjong,

    Welcome to the community,

    You should try the app without compensation.

  • Sending SMS from the Defy: two questions

    I've been with the Defy for a few weeks and I love the phone, but with all the power of Android, I lack some features, that I used to have in my old classic 'Hynek '. Perhaps they are there and I just have not found, but believe me, I really look...

    Two of them are currently particularly annoying when sending SMS. Here in Brazil, the long distance dialing format includes a code of long distance provider of your choice (specifically, you must dial 0 + code of the carrier + area code + phone number). So, I added all the entries on my directory, including the carrier code which usually has the lowest rates. But this format does not work to send text messages. to do this, use + 55 (the Brazil country code) + area code + phone number. There are a couple of other formats that the carrier has properly analysis and sends the message (for example, to send messages to phones in the same area code, just without any codes work phone number), but the format used for long distance calls cannot be used.

    My old phone had a feature that allows you to modify the number before sending the message, and I used that. With the Defy, I'll have to look up the number in the phone book and type it in the appropriate format, rather than choose the contact directly here as a destination. Is there a way to change the number before sending on the Defy? I tried, but it only allows me to delete this contact or include another. I also thought to including an additional entry phone just for SMS for each contact in the phone book, but it would be too complicated.

    The second feature is the ability to set the phone to send a request for confirmation of delivery as well as the message. As soon as the message was delivered to the recipient's phone, I got a message of confirmation by the carrier. While most of the messages are provided instantly, some, especially to another carrier, or if the recipient's phone is turned off or out of coverage in time, may take longer and sometimes it is important to know if the other person actually received it. My Defy not to do and I couldn't find any configuration option to allow this. I'm on the same carrier as before, so the feature support is not a problem.

    So, anyone know of a way to change the phone number before sending an SMS and request a delivery confirmation message?

    Thank you very much.

    Thank you, j0h4n. In the end, I solved both problems by simply using a different application. What I've explored, there doesn't seem to be a way to change the phone number of the addressee on the fly with the standard application, and everything by asking a delivery report is possible, he is not required by default, may not be configured to be requested by default and must be done individually for each message sent.

    But I explored the Android Market, try Handcent SMS and SMS GO and found both to be excellent. Both allow changing the number on the fly and NDRs that would be asked by default (in addition to many other interesting features). Since they have interfered with each other, I had to choose an and kept GOING SMS, I found a bit niftier to use and implemented the number editing best feature (Handcent editor a bit confused with this and I had to be careful when editing).

    Obviously, English isn't a problem for me, if not Handcent would have the head, because it is available, located in Portuguese (and many other languages), while SMS GO is only available in English and Chinese. But as it is, I liked it. I would still recommend Handcent and users should try both to see which they like best.

  • Companies in the country of residence, said Apple devices can send sms from one country to another unless the owner knows. If it's true there at - it an explanation why and how to stop this shit.

    Recently, in Albania, I have an mobile number, and normally they have offers and their packages on calls and sms. the sticky thing is they also have the option to go short of the amount you paid. But that's only if you activate and I know that you can go out, even if it's a prepaid number, strange o my eyes and strange i just that apple can send sms to the United Kingdom without I know and this power use iPhone like at the beginning, but never seen anything like this.  Mainly I mind because of confidence in the company and the product, not because it s a small amount of monye, but because I have no idea and I'm checking all my sms with this strange issue that i don't know who he is.

    How ever I'd like to know can´t it possible to a iPhone can send sms without I know number that I have no idea as I have registered it in my cell phone. So what to do, before I report it to the authority and the Police because it seems like a fraud. And I don't want to pay for something I've ever used.

    If your device sends an SMS to the United Kingdom, it seems that you are referring to the SMS activation for iMessage and FaceTime. It is a text Message hidden so check with the Apple server to the United Kingdom. If you are using media supported for the iPhone, they normally do not charge for these SMS, so I think that you are not using a supported carrier. If you have tried to enable iMessage and/or FaceTime, which is the cause. You should contact your operator to find out if they support iMessage and FaceTime. If this isn't the case, then you can not use these features.

  • My Iphone / imessage / facetime continues to send sms without authorization

    Hello

    I use the Apple as the Iphone products for centuries. Eversince I have spend provider to another (which has no contract with apple), my custody Iphone sms sending abroad without knowing me, until I receive my Bill.

    All messages are a number in the United Kingdom. I tried to find out which application is causing the problem. To read other users ' questions, I guess that's iMessage.

    I use my phone for sms not talkative iMessage. All the app are disabled, iMessage and FaceTime. How do these apps still send sms? I never authorized iMessage or any application to send sms. Apple why phone texting without knowing me?

    How can I block apps to send sms? If anyone knows how, please let me know. It is ridiculous that I have to pay for something I don't use. If apple likes to make apps that sends messages, apple should foot the Bill for the users.

    If this issue cannot be resolved, then I need to consider using android.

    See you soon,.

    First, there is no Apple in this technical forum from user to user.

    Second we user do not care if you go to an Android phone, you are more than welcome.

    If you get an error when you try to activate FaceTime - Apple Support or iMessage

    You use a carrier not supported iphone as you said in your post, this is why he sends sms to the number to the United Kingdom.

    Take your problem with your phone operator.

    When I try to manually associate my watch it only gives me a 5 digit number, but not the number 6 to complete the pairing.  How can I get the 6 digit number?

    Hello

    When pairing manually, you must press the name of 5 digits on the screen of your iPhone (when he shows the same device name that is shown on your watch, after typed it on your watch's 'i'):

    Your watch then displays a six-digit code, you will then enter on your iPhone:

    Check with your mail service provider to make sure that there is not an intermittent interruption of service.  If you have webmail capabilities, you can also check.  Otherwise, compact and repair the database (www.oehelp.com/WMUtil/) and if that doesn't help, remove your e-mail account, close and reopen WinMail and then add it back back.  Also check 3rd party program interference such as antivirus software (see www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3).
