Resolved Question:

When I try to send a text message with NET10, I enter the number, press send, and instead of sending it (like it used to), it goes to a new screen and says Enter Center. What does it want? It will not let me send text messages any more. The on-line manual at NET10 is way too general to address this.

Thank you for choosing JustAnswer, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'll be happy to assist you.

The "Center Number" is the message center number. In other words, it's a number which Net10 uses to route all their text messages through. If your phone isn't set to route through that specific number, then you won't be able to send any messages. You should be able to edit the Center number under your message settings. The Center number will be provided to you by calling NEt10 customer service if it's already not populated in the Center Number field.

in message settings, my email gateway is 121. when I enter 121 at enter center, it deducts 0.5 minutes, then does not send the message. Where in message settings is the number that I need?
Expert:  WirelessWizard replied 5 years ago.
Your Center number will be an actual phone number--such as +1719555111. Sometimes the message center number is XXXXX and needs to be sent to your phone by net10 technical support. This is all dependant on the model of your device and its restrictions. You need to call into Net10 for that center number anyway, so they should be able to your mobile.
