    I mistakenly hit "Update" while the SMSC box was empty and now all I have is 00 as the SMSC. Never EVER hit update while that box was empty. Anyone know what the current SMSC is? I try to update the SMSC with +13123149810 but the app keeps on erroring out. Do I have the right number? Will the app not let me put in the correct SMSC?

    I was having the same problem! It sounds as if you were messing around in the service area using code *#*#4634#*#* or some similar code depending on your phone? If so, entering the SMSC # will not update/register in that location. I have a Samsung Captivate phone through AT&T, (obviously since that's who sells that version). I went in the actual message area....clicked on menu....well follow the steps below...I was up and running in less than a minute. If you don't have the same phone, it may still help...if not, I suggest going to the online AT&T question center, type in SMSC number and whatever phone you have and follow the steps...it's that simple.

    Access or Change the Text Message Center Number with the Samsung Captivate (i897)

    1. From the Home screen, tap Applications.

    2. Go to and select Messaging.

    3. Tap your Menu Key.

    4. Tap Settings.

    5. Tap Message Center.

    6. Enter appropriate Message Center Number, then tap OK.
    *NOTE- you must enter the + sign before the number and exactly as it appears below.

    WA LA!.....easy as....well....selecting some options in your phone and entering numbers!

    Thanks. I never even noticed that the option was there. Unfortunately I tried to enter the number one more time in AnyCut and the next thing I know the phone went into a reboot loop. I ended up taking the sim out for the phone to work. Had to get a new sim :-(
