How to send SMS to FDN Contacts?
User using FDN on a phone will not be able to send SMS to the Contacts even though they are in the FDN list
Resolution / Answer
Fixed Dialing Number (FDN) is a service mode of a GSM phone's Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card. Numbers are added to the FDN list, and when activated, FDN restricts outgoing calls to only those numbers listed. User needs to add the SMSC Number to the FDN list.
Follow the below steps to add SMSC number to the FDN list.
- Launch Messaging --> Menu Settings-->Click on SMSC number -->Copy the SMSC number from here.
- Now launch Phone-->Menu Settings-->->Call Settings-->-Fixed Dialing Number-->FDN List --> Add FDN Contact as "SMSC" and "SMSC Number" paste the SMSC number copied from step1
Now send SMS to any FDN number which was saved earlier.
