VinaPhone message center number is +8491020005 and Mobifone is +84900000012.

Secondly, the "Reply via same center" on Nokia products or "Direct reply" on Siemens phones modes must be turned off.

With this turned on, users are still able to send messages. However, the receivers can not send back answers with the "Reply" mode in their own mobiles.

Besides, it is better for users to switch off the "Delivery reports" mode so that the network doesn’t have process more messages.

Also, avoid sending message in crowded places.

On some modern mobile phones, users can write long messages of over 1,000 characters. However, limit your message to a standard one of 160 characters.
