Can't send message with plusnet error 96

After receiving a replacement phone and putting new sim card in the phone, I have been unable to send text messages, I can receive them, but can't reply to them.

I've tried putting the sim card in another phone and the same error code comes up. 

I've cleared the cache, uninstalled updates, updated and still the same code comes up. 

HELP!

Hey @Felix59,

You should be able to a PM to @abails0105 by clicking on her name, on the right hand side of the screen you should see "send private message" in a grey box. You can of course send the same information across on our social media channels if it's easier.

 

Let us know if you need further assistance,

Thanks

Re: Can't send message with plusnet error 96

Error 96 is typically an incorrect SMS service number(SMSC) . You can find the correct number from here https://www.plus.net/help/mobile/mobile-phone-and-voicemail-settings/

On android you can check it from 

Settings (global) - System - About phone - Status - Network - SMS centre number.
Works on Android 9.
