Try the following: 
1. Press the Menu key from the home screen. 2. Select Settings.

3. Select the More tab at the top right corner of your screen.

4. Select Application Manager.

5.Slide the screen to the All section.

6. Select Messages.

7. Under the Permissions section you will find a drop down menu with 3 options for Sending Premium SMS (this isn't very obvious but is in the middle of the permissions text)


    Ask - Never Allow - Always Allow


8. Select the desired option (Ask is the default)
