Hello, I am Stelios from Greece. I am a new owner of Atrix and a new member of forum. As a new atrix owner I encountered my first serious problem today.
Yesterday I installed handcent sms so I decide to remove the stock sms apllication using the AntTek application manager. Particularly, I delete two applications. The first was the sms application and the second was a "messaging" application that I don't remember it name and I don't know it function. After that, I noticed that I can't send SMS and the received SMS can't stored in my device.
The attempts to solve the problem:
I tried a factory reset but nothing changed.
I downloaded my stock ROM (Version: Android 2.3.4 4.5.2A-74_OLE-31.1) in order to find the .apk and odex files that I need. The Rom in .sbf format and after searching I tried to extract it but I managed nothing because the files are in .smg format that I can't extract.
The only solution I can think:
After that the only solution I can think is to find the deleted archives from another user.
Can someone upload the .apk and .odex files of these applications?
The files are located at /system/app (only root users can have access there)
Do you think that different ROMS would have different .apk or .odex files of the archives I need and won't work?
If you can think any other easier solution I would be glad to hear you.
Thanks for your help!

Who is your carrier?
If you have the APN information, User Agent and User Profile URL for your carrier, in Go SMS you can set that information and have Go SMS handle all of your SMS and MMS needs. You also need to find the SMSC for your carrier. This is the messaging center for your carrier responsible for delivering SMS. Typically this number (a phone number here in the US, not sure about international carriers) is required to send and receive text messages.
As far as I have looked, here is what you need;
In Go SMS:
Settings > Send settings > Enable customized SMSC: Check this box and enter your SMSC number in the section below.
Settings > MMS Settings >
Make MMS auto-retrieve
Maximum MMS Size: Choose your size, the larger the size, the longer it takes to send I have 2M due to a really good 3G/4G network in my area.
Preserve Image Resolution: Check this, it will ensure that if the picture is sent with the best resolution
User Agent: Fill in User Agent information
User Profile URL: Fill in User Profile URL
APN Configuration: Check this and fill in the MMSC, MMS Proxy and MMS Port.
This should allow you to use Go SMS instead as your default messaging app.
If you can tell me who your carrier is, I might be able to help you with setting up Go SMS to do so.
No, the problem is that I had frozen system messaging application using AntTek app manager. After that I couldn't send and receive messages. When I realised that, I replace the apk files (which I finally managed to find) in /system/app, I changed the permissions and I was able to send and receive sms. However the problem has not been solved completely. The sms I send and received can not be saved in the device.
I tried everything but nothing solved my problem so I am finally thinking to reflash my stock sbf rom using RSD lite.
You may want to try one of the many apps on the market. Sometimes the simplest fix is to go around the problem. I use separate apps for texting, etc, so I don't have my personal number being blown up by random people who have access to my phone number. At least it may buy you some time, while you look for a proper fix.
