Apparently I can't live without text messaging so really need some help. This proble started about 5 days ago but I had surgery so I ignored but today I needed to text message and its still not working.

I did the following:
checked my SMS center number is filled in.  under:
- Messaging app
- Menu
- Settings
- Advanced Settings
- Service center number
It is currently empty so I tried refreshing updating and entering PUD number that I found somewhere on the internet but it says this every time "Can't connect to the network. CHeck you data connection and try again  :( data connection is good. What do I do now?

Stuff below just FYI
I don't know if this is a bug, It could be I installed some google play app recently and I have noticed that some apps fight for dominance between google play and Mi market. For example POF app if download by Mi it will work if download by google play it won't work but if you allow auto updates in the google play it will update the POF app a day later break it then you have to reinstall it. Please help I have no clue what causes this type of issue.

After you manually entered the service center number did it stick? or if you go back it's blank again?
I would try 2 things if i were you; first insert the sim card in another phone to see if you hae the same problem.
If in another phone it works i would make a nandroid backup in recovery and then wipe data, cache and dalvik to have the phone as if it was new. And without installing any app try to see if it works.
This way we can try find out if the culprit of this behaviour is your sim card, your rom or your phone...

I will figure out how to wipe data I have made a backup using 2 different ways the snapea backup and using the app on the xiomi phone FYI I have a Mi3 not the redmi.

FYI to change the Service center number I used the following method:
When to phone information using the code*#*#4636*#*#
then navigated to--> phone info on the bottom it has SMSC I entered number but get update error am I doing this correctly or is this the wrong place to enter the number?


Side NOte*

I know you have a Mi3
Maybe you could try changing the service center in:
messaging - menu button settings - advanced - SMS center number
Don't worry about your explanations, i think i understand
Take care

messaging - menu  ...

Originaly that's exactly what I tried to do and every time I clicked on the button SMS center number it said something like the following " could not connect to network please check your network connection and try again." In that method I had no way to input a number I only got the message so thats why I turn to phone information method to see if that would work and indeed it allowed me to enter a number but I continued to get error update error. So because I thinking this is definitely something complex or high level that would take 3 days to figure out how to fix it manually I took the easy route I used the follwing:( FYI note that the following will wipe your phone completely to it's original format out of the box before preforming I am not responsible for lost deleted or anyproblems you have doing this.)
Wipe all User date using MI recover system 2.0.1 do the following
1- Shutdown phone
2- Hold the power and +volume button until MI logo appears then release
3- Click the Wipe all User data
4- Click the Reboot

Text messaging will now work YAH! thank god I dont even care that I have to re-download google play and all the requirements. I do seem to be missing my En Baidu keyboard seems like it disapeared and am using the google Pinyin wich sucks. Things to Note after the reboot I can click on the SMS center button through the advanced message app settings and now can input a number but the correct one pops up anyways :) ( to me seems like software issue)

Ok so I'm not sure what caused the problem but my guesse is I downloaded something on google play that caused the problem specifically It may have been one of these programs I can't be sure as I don't have the install dates :( cause I hadn't made a recent backup:

Messages +,Contacts +,Dialer +, Skyvi ( directly related to mms)
Non related programes : POF ,SayHi

Anyways if you feel like experimenting and finding this bug I'm pretty sure one of those apps will do it, otherwise I have no idea.

Hey I was also wondering I have noticed that POF when download on google play will not launch but when downloaded from Mi market it launchs but if auto update is enabled ( google play will preform the update ) this breaks the app any clues as to why I have to download from the Mi market?)

Another strange thing incase you happen to know I've noticed that I can't download apps unless I'm on wifi--> Is this a setting I can disable?( I found the answer to that one in the following :only downloads on wifi change the settin.. )

One last question which blew me away this morning I got a call from someone claiming to be my carrier (voicemail) they said to call them back and they would help me fix my text messaging problem I was perplexed by this as I never submited any question about text messaging to anyone at any point except on this site. But WAIT! I did use the MI Feedback app and clicked on one the icons and submited that I had a problem with my text messaging....... HOw in the Hell did someone get my phone number my carrier and my name and call me back with a solution to my problem wtf doesn't that seem a little crazy, how the hell does that app work?

Sorry about taking the easy route out I hope it still shed's more light for you as to the original problem. I wish I had taken a picture of the LOgs for the phone oh well live and learn thanks for your help.
Now I will remeber that screen pic is "-Volume + Menu simultaneously" in case a new xiomi person is reading this.

Thanks again

I'm glad you managed to get sms working!
I tried downloading POF from play store at indeed it FC's when opened. I guess the one in mi market is an older version that worked, so disable google play store auto -updates and let's wait for POF to fix their app.
As for the call you recived, it might have been your carrier detecting you were having trouble sending sms... Since you got it fixed, they shuldn't bother you again.
And don't worry about the log thingy, the important thing is your phone is working as it should
