Accessing text messaging settings on a Nokia phone is a simple procedure. While some options are not able to be changed, some can be customised to the user's preference. Options that pertain to the network coverage or a call centre are pre-configured to the carrier -- these options cannot be changed. Options which do not pertain to any networks, carriers or call centres can be changed at any time.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

    Press "Save Settings" on the bottom of the menu and press "End" on the Nokia to close the menu. The new settings are now changed and saved.
