[Resolved]  Idea Cellular — not able to send sms

Address:Rangareddy, Andhra Pradesh, 500035

I am not able to send text messages from my Idea mobile network sim from past 2 days. When I called up the Idea customer care and asked for a solution they suggested me
1) To re-enter the message center number [protected], restart the mobile and assured that the messages would be send but the the solution failed.
2) Then they suggested me to reset my mobile to factory settings and it would be solved again failed. Later, I insert other network sim in my mobile and tried send the text message this time message was send successful.
3) Finally, the customer care representatives started to tell that they are facing some network issues and asked me to wait for 2 hrs and then restart the mobile it would work. When I tried with another Idea network sim immediately the message was send successfully.
4) After a long discussion with the Idea customer care representative, they started saying that this issue is happening with only few idea sims as they are changing 3G satellite to 4G or something like this and asked me to wait for 1 day.

Now I'm clueless and helpless!

I request, to help me on this issue.

Thanks in advance!

I am also facing the same issue from past 1month. It's really frustrating. I am using MI note 4A. I too had tried many things still it persists. I have visited idea store for a new sim however the representative took 100rs from me and made a recharge of it and said that new sim will activate in 4hrs and it will resolve the problem however neither the new sim started nor my problem is resolved. Thinking of porting my number to Airtel.
[protected] SMS not sent through idea network
[protected] redmi note 10S mobile we are try to sent SMS but not sent.
Please solve the issue
I'm not able to send sms from my vi sim. First I recharged my mobile for 49 rupees and tried but I was not able to send. Then I recharged again with 10 rupees and tried, the result was same. Then I contacted customer care and informed them I'm facing this issue. But I become surprised after hearing their reply.
They said the customer can't send sms without recharge their sim with a plan above 129 rupees. But they haven't informed yet about this via sms or an email. They said they updated about this in their vi app, but I'm not a user of vi app.
