I receive an error message whenever I text recently entered contacts. It says the number is invalid. I have tried entering the number with the area code and without the area code.

I receive an error message whenever I try to send text messages to new contacts. It says the number is invalid and to enter a 10 digit number. I have tried entering the phone number with the area code and without the area code. Any ideas?

Same problem here. I've deleted the contact and had them text me, but when I try to text them back I get the same invalid number message! So frustrating! Please help!

    Have you tried to sign out of Facebook  in iPhoto and to start over? Remove your Facebook account from the iPhoto Preferences > Accounts panel. Select Facebook and press the "-" button.
    Quit iPhoto,  make sure, your Facebook albums no longer do show, then add the Facebook account again by pressing "+".
    Then try to publish your albums again. If there are still problems, try LarryHN's user tip.
                     A solution to FaceBook posting issues
    In the long run, it is much simpler, to export your albums from iPhoto to the Desktop and to upload them from your Facebook page. This way, you will avoid all the problems caused by syncing the albums between your iPhoto library and Facebook.

  • Software update says I need to do the lastest update which I have tried to do at least 6 times. It downloads the software, the computer restarts, it starts to finish the download and then says ' there was an error in installing the software" What is up?

    Software update says I need to download MacOS 10.6.7. Each time I try, I have tried 6 times, the software downloads, it has me restart the system, it then writes the files to disk and then I get an error measage that "there was error in installing the softare. Anybody have this problem and how do you fix it? I am running 10.6.6

    Try this before trying to install the update.
    Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your Snow Leopard Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    If you still have a problem then I suggest you download the 10.6.7 Combo Updater and install it.

  • Error message: "Java Script turned off, Enable Java Script" How to do this? I have gone into "Tools--then Options--Then checked Java Script--Then the "OK/Save" Button but this has not helped. What is the right course of action?

    Java Script is disabled on my HP laptop. I have done the obvious things. It still will not enable Java Script. What do I try next?

    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    * Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
    See:
    * [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]]
    * [[Troubleshooting plugins]]
    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
    * Use "Disable all add-ons" on the [[Safe mode]] start window to disable all extensions.
    * Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

  • HT201413 ? I have an iPad 3 and it just keeps power cycling.  I have tried to restore it with iTunes several times and it keeps coming up with Error 9.  Loss of USB connection.  I have tried different cables and ports and it wont come back to life.

    Can't seem to figure this out on my own.  My apple store is 90 minites away and I would like to not burn up a weekend traveling to the store just to have it sent away.  Any ideas what I can do to get my iPad3 from power cycling.  I am up to date on all software updates.

  • When opening the Coloursync utility and pressing the verify button, I received an error message stating that the Tag 'cprt':Text tag has an incorrect length which could not be fixed as the file is locked. Does anyone know how to rectify this?

    When opening the Coloursync utility and pressing the verify button, I received an error message (copy below) stating that the Tag 'cprt':Text tag has an incorrect length which could not be fixed as the file is locked. Does anyone know how to rectify this?
    Checking 25 profiles...

       Tag 'cprt': Text tag has an incorrect length.
       The file is locked. Could not be fixed.

    Hi guys,
    I followed the steps to unlock the .icc file in the "getinfo" screen then went on clicking repair in colorsync utility.
    This is the message i got:
    Searching for profiles...
    Checking 17 profiles...
    /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays/Color LCD-00000610-0000-9CF3-0000-000004273CC0.icc
       Tag 'cprt': Text tag has an incorrect length. Fixed.
    Repair done - 1 profiles fixed.
    However, when i hit verify again it shows up like this:

    Checking 17 profiles...
    /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays/Color LCD-00000610-0000-9CF3-0000-000004273CC0.icc
       Tag 'cprt': Text tag has an incorrect length.
    Verify done - found 1 bad profile.
    ... and it keeps like this sine die.
    when i open the .icc file it shows up like this:
    3     'cprt'     'text'     35     Copyright ASCII Text String
    New to mac so I really don't know what to do.
    I didn't get this message so far. What i did before getting this message was to open a jpeg file. I wanted to edit it so when i did right click on the file i went to open with, and colorsync came as an option; so i chose it.
    Then this message started comming up.
    Is there anything i can do?
    Thabks for the support.

  • I unplugged a USB data device without ejecting it properly via 'Finder'.  Now whenever I plug in the device I received an error message stating that the 'disk was not ejected properly

    Now when I plug in the device I receive an error message stating that the disk was not ejected properly & that next time I connect the 'disk', MAC OS X will attempt to repair any damage to the information on the disk.
    It has not repaired.
    The data I am trying to import is photos & even when I change to a different SD card I receive the same message.
    I am a recent convert from Windows and am new to the MAC way of things.  

    You can repair the SD card using Disk Utility.
    I suggest you copy the photos from your SD card, if you haven't done so already, before using Disk Utility to repair your SD card.

  • S3 error message before every text.

    I have a galaxy s3 and after the kitkat update I get a error message whenever I get a text. Can anyone tell me why?

        Hi bhpayton!
    I'd love to be the one to fix this for you! Let's see what's going on OK? What error message appears when you get a text? Are you able to view the received message (and who it's from, etc.)? Are you having any issues in sending messages? Please provide some additional information for me, thanks!

  • Why am I receiving an error message while trying to change my phone number?

    So I have been trying to change my phone number for a few days now and every single time I get this error message, before i even start, "The activity you are trying to perform is currently unavailable. Please try again later."  I was hoping to circumvent the 15$  fee of doing it over the phone. Finally, I decided to do an online chat, the associate did not know why the error was occurring but informed me in order to change my number over chat, i would STILL have to pay the 15$ fee. Something struck me as so wrong there, so conveniently the change features and phone number part of the website was not working, however the view/pay your bill part was always working properly, never received any error messages there. I understood it was not the associates fault however. Still that is wrong. If it was not urgent I would wait. Yes I could have tried the number block, that section was not working either, but having to renew which numbers you want blocked every couple of months makes no sense to me, if I want something blocked, i want it blocked permanently not just for 90 days.  Yes I tried call/SMS blocker apps from the app store but they're faulty in that they still give you notifications of when the blocked person/number called/text or do not always block everything all the time. But when it came down to it, even the associate encountered the error message while trying to change my number. So why is this happening. Verizon is expensive but the reception is better however theirs always issues when I need to fix something. Its frustrating

    Verizon was having a problem on their end, perhaps a server down for some repair or updating. However you were already aware that there was an on-going problem in your own posting and you decided to continue on.I can understand you wanting this done and trying to save the $15.00 fee.  However I would have waited a bit longer until the Verizon issue had been corrected. Yes it is frustrating but again you know in advance of a problem , I can understand that this is most upsetting for you but never try to perform any change when a problem is there and I also do not like to do business on a weekend with no live tech support available.  I'm sure this will all work out for you if given some time.  Sorry.

  • Receiving an Error message when trying to send an email

    Help
    All of a sudden whenever I try to send an email I receive an Error message stating it cannot be delivered. The message suggests verifying addressee, checking SMTP server settings and verifying any advanced settings. I have tried different addressees, and all the information in the Mail Preferences looks accurate to me. Any ideas what could be causing this? It just started happening.
    Any info is greatly appreciated

    Hi Susan,
    Many ISPs have recently started blocking outgoing (smtp) mail via port 25 that doesn't use their own smtp server. (This is to try and combat spam).
    There are generally two ways to overcome this:
    1) Use the smtp server of the ISP that you are currently connected to. (If you have a laptop and connect from different places this may mean you have to select an appropriate smtp server at each location.)
    2) Connect to your preferred smtp server on a port other than 25. This will depend on the setup of that server. For instance the Apple .Mac smtp server allows connections on port 587 (reference Apple support article: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=75124)

  • Error message uploading 0material text and attributes.

    Dear all,
    i have received an error message when uploading 0material text and attributes.
    Error message is as follows:
    RSDMD 194
    Data record 512 & with the key '000000000000000081T &' is invalid in
    value '000000000000000081 &' of the attribute/characteristic 0MATERIAL
    The system has recognized that the value mentioned above is invalid, and
    has processed this general error message. A subsequent message may give
    you more information on the error. This message refers to the same
    value, even though it does not state this explicitly.
    any help?
    thanks

    Hi john mcquade,
    Your error message says it all!
    You have your 0material with wrong info to be loaded, check your PSA the records with error (should begin in record 512) and see what is inserted as 0material (probably you're missing some zeros before the number).
    You could compare that record with another one (less than the record 512) to see an example of a material that has the right input and this one that exists here with errors.
    Diogo.
