comment Can receive but cannot send SMS on SGS3, help me debug with logcat?
Ah sorry I was presuming the reverse re: "easier to read" 55. The thing is my logcat is like 60,000 lines after a day; it's doing my head in with too much information of which I understand very little. When I Pastebin should I filter for specific keywords or... Would changing service providers be expected to result in a fix? Cause AIS is totally unsympathetic and belligerent, saying "You root your phone, your problem"; which I do empathize with but they load it up with 200 bloatware apps so (in Toddler voice) "They Started It!"

Added confusing APN logcat screenshots.

@Izzy That's correct. All MMS go through but all SMS instantly fail. I've used a couple 3rd party SMS apps and the same thing occurs; MMS goes through but SMS instantly fails. So this means the "generic failure" is caused by my service provider? I see a heck of a lot of logcat error(?) messages about this MMS-APN you mention; I might see if I can add the screenshots to my OP as there seems to be some chaos in my logs.

@Izzy So you've had an inspired moment and - amazingly - my MMSs get through but my SMSs fail. I owe you a debt of gratitude already as, although it's inconvenient, I can turn every SMS into an MMS but this should make the problem extremely isolated no?

Thx for the edit @Izzy - I've just tried a few standard words, nothing over 30 characters. No pictures or files, but that would turn it MMS I imagine. Might just try to send a picture....

Hi I'm just using the Stock Messaging App Messaging version 4.2.1-eng.bajee11.20130213.072212 - I presume it sends both SMS and MMS but I'm not sure I've sent an MMS in my life. Number of provider? They gave me a "Messaging Center" number but I don't know where I'm supposed to enter it; there's no field in the App settings or the Systems settings that I can see. I had a problems on my stock Samsung BloatBean which wouldn't update OTA but the SMS problem didn't start when I rooted my phone, but during one of the many ROM changes (no idea which one, but doesn't work for any ROM now).

comment How can I prevent unwanted pre-installed apps from automatically running on Android?
@trusktr I hope you've already gotten the answer but for ICS you'd need to root your phone as per the above - all those apps could not be frozen without root access. With JB, there are still some you can't disable that don't appear to be vital system apps; but the vast majority you can simply deactivate from Settings > Apps.

SASlideShow, SecPhone, SecSetupWizard, Security Storage, Self Test Mode, Service mode, Settings, Settings storage, ShareShotService, SIM Toolkit, SmartCardService, Software update (x2, v2.2.7 can disable, v3_1207_2_1 cannot), SysScope, System UI, Task Manager, TestService, TMServerApp, TouchWiz home, TwDVFSApp, USB settings, Video Player, Voice Recorder, VpnDialogs, WlanTest, wssyncmlnps. The other half I can disable. The services I tried to bold alarm me, but I simply don't have the time to figure out which ones are expressly needed.
