With the various features provided, it is also possible that it will affect its performance, such as several problems. The thing that is most often found is that Xiaomi cannot send SMS even though there is credit.

Vice versa, sometimes users complain that Xiaomi can’t receive SMS even though judging from the condition the signal is there and used for the internet it can still be used. It is strange, but we will discuss all these problems.

Xiaomi Can’t Send and Receive SMS? See How to Overcome

1. Reboot Smartphone

Rebooting is a basic solution on any smartphone that is experiencing an error. Because rebooting here will restart the smartphone from the beginning and stop the long running process.

The notion of rebooting itself does not mean that it will delete all data on the smartphone, but rather to restart the system (turn off and turn the phone back on) so that processes that are currently running can be stopped first and start again.

You need to know that it is not good to let Xiaomi smartphones live continuously, he is also the same as humans who need to rest or sleep. So we suggest we recommend rebooting the phone once a day.

2. Set Message Center Number

One of the failures of Xiaomi is not being able to send and receive SMS because the configuration of the message center number is sometimes wrong. Here’s how to fix it:

  1. First go to Settings / Settings.
  2. Then go to System applications.
  3. Look for the Messages app, select Additional settings.
  4. Then scroll down until you see the Short Message Service Center (SMSC) menu.
Set Message Center Number

Fill in the message center number according to the operator you are using, the following is a list of message center numbers for all operators in Indonesia:

  • Telkomsel (Simpati, AS, etc.) = +6281100000
  • INDOSAT Mentari = +62816124
  • INDOSAT IM3 = +6285500000
  • AXIS = +628315000032
  • 3 = +6289644000001
  • XL = +62818445009

Please check the sms center number used is it compatible with your SIM card operator? If not or even one number can be fatal.

3. Out of Credit

Make sure you have enough credit to send SMS. Of course, this depends on the card provider used, such as Telkomsel, Axis, Indosat, XL, Smartfren and Tri, of course, they have different SMS rates.

However, the average SMS rate now seems to be expensive, regardless of which operator. The solution, you can use a promo sms package, which is usually built with a call package like the one offered by Kartu As, which is called a combo package, for the duration of calls, sms and internet quota.

4. Card Active Period

One of the requirements to be able to make SMS, telephone and Internet communication is that the card used is in an active period. If your card enters the grace period, automatically communication activities cannot be carried out except for only receiving SMS and calls.

Therefore, it is very important to maintain the active period of the card used. To keep making an active card, there are several ways you can do it, such as buying credit, for example 5 thousand you will get an active period of 7 days.

There are also several providers that provide active period purchase packages at certain prices, such as 2 thousand for 3 days and 30 thousand for 30 days.

However, this active period is determined individually by the policy of each provider. In my opinion, the card that is not stingy when it is active is the ace card from Telkomsel.

5. Interrupted By Service

You may not be able to send and receive SMS on Xiaomi because it is caused by a service interruption. Like one of the features called the Xiaomi sim activation service where this always appears when we use a cellphone for the first time or change sim cards.

The solution that can be done is to remove it first.

6. Provider Has Problems

If you have done all the solutions above but still Xiaomi cannot send or receive SMS, then the last possibility is that the network provider you are using is experiencing service problems. For this you can wait up to 24 hours or more depending on how long the repair time is needed.

If you want to check it yourself, please contact the operator of your service.
