N86 - cannot send the SMS

First post here
Location - USA, carrier - ATT, unlimited data and messaging plan.
I bought N86 for my son a couple of months ago off online store in NY. It was working fine but recently he told me that he cannot send SMS. He can receive them but cannot send. It looks like the SMS is getting send (the bar is going on) but then the sent folder is empty and the status on the SMS is resending at such and such time.
Did anyone have that sort of problems and any idea on what's wrong and how to fix it?
Thanks a lot in advance!

Smile Software

It might be a software bug , that could be washed out in a coming firmware-update (OS) . Or some corrupted software interfering . To get temporary (?) rid of the problem you can do a reboot or reset . For a hard reset it will be necessary to have a backup of all your personal data . See my post here about a how-to , also for N86 :

Hope it helps ...

Edit : What Firmware version are you on ? See this thread :
