- Your account allows you to send SMS (some Prepay services do not)
- The correct Service Centre number is selected in Settings
- The phone number is correct
- Your mobile device is available
- A mobile connection is available.
If this error persists, please contact Support at your
mobile network operator.

Are you using a Pay-as-you-Go modem or Contract modem?
Unfortunately our Pay-as-you-Go modems are not enabled for sending SMS messages, although you will be able to receive. This is because your credit is converted into a data bundle at a higher value rate then you'd get with a standard PAYG tariff. Because of this, there is unfortunately no way for us to charge you for sending an SMS, and thus it is disabled.
My apologies for the misleading and inaccurate information earlier in this thread.

As Jon says, pre pay mobile broadband SIMs cannot send SMS though they can receive.

I have the same problem and I am new to Vodafone, especially mobile broadband. I would appreciate advice and/if it is even possible to send text messages from your pc via your pay and go dongle. Thank you for any help given..

Can not send txt messages through my pay as you go dongle
From the last messages in this thread, it appears that this is not a problem, but the intended/expected behaviour; it is not possible, the posts above indicate, to send SMS from a pre-pay dongle.
