Most operators activate the service of sending and receiving sms-messages automatically.

Pay attention to the order and rules for connecting messaging services. This will help to quickly understand the configuration of this method of communication.

Start setting up sms on your phone by defining an sms center. SMS center is called a contact number. It performs the function of a service center at a particular carrier. If in simple terms, this number is the "connection point" of communication between two subscribers using messages. You will also see the SMS center number on the operator’s website. A window with a request for this number will appear in the phone, enter it there and press ok.

Select the type of messages in the settings of sms-messages of your phone. If you only exchange text messages, select the “Text” message type. If you need to exchange e-mail, voice or fax messages, then choosing the appropriate names "Voice", "Fax", "E-mail", you can easily complete the setting.If you want to receive confirmation of the message delivery, you need to connect the Delivery Report service.
