Thank you for choosing airtel.
I have sufficient balance.
I have tried urs n all the above options even with my perfectly working with other non airtel numbers nokia 1600 & nokia E72 where incoming n outgoing of calls is working perfectly but sms is not working.
when i dial *121*2# i get “Error occurred (538). Please try after sometime.” in my andriod, no coverage in e72
one more thing guys, there is one very old airtel prepaid sim which has 0 bal from more than 6 months n it received last sms at end of july and that is from day one an airtel number (no mnp at all)
when i dial *121*2# i get pop ups perfectly. no error at all.
i tried to send sms n getting message “no network conerage” in nokia 1600, n unable to send message in my andriod.
i dont think thr is any issue with my sim as its a brand new one (got it replaced 1-2 months back)
.seems issue is with my number only which was mnp’ed more than a year ago.
i will reply with the above info & the asked info to airtel.
