Hi VictorD

First of all, thank you for all your assistance. Based on the logs, the tech team suggest that the text system of Orange Romania is different from the text system of Android 10 (IMS). If your user experience is highly impacted, please continuously stay on Android 9, which perform the same text system as Orange Romania. Sorry for any inconvenience it may cause.

# You may follow the steps below as 10 to 9 downgrade steps.

1. Download "Version Android 10 downgrade to P" and then put the image file into the root directory of the MicroSD card.

Thank you for looking into it.
It seems highly unlikely. Orange Romania supports even the new RCS. What about the other countless Android 10 phones already on the Orange network that have no issue with sending text messages? 🙂

Hi Sergiu
Thank you for your asking. Kindly try some stay-at-home troubleshooting tips below:
1. Try to insert the SIM port without SIM card, then out the SIM card in and re-insert again.
2. Clean your SIM card softly with air compressed can,
3. Does the SIM card work in other device? Try to change another SIM card for cross-testing.
4. Please try reset Network: Settings>System>Reset options>Reset Wi-Fi, mobile & Bluetooth
5. Also, please try "the Factory Reset" 
Settings>System>Reset options>Erase all data(factory reset)
Please note that once the Factory Reset is completed, all data, apps, settings and personal information will be deleted.
6. Please try SMMI test, and provide me the result
