I am registered on dstar and with my ID 2262022, but i am unable to send sms to another radio via DMR in Romania, or to send to an APRS station via 5057 number. I have succeeded in the past, but now i am unable. My radio is TYT MD-380.

I don't know about the D-STAR side.

On DMR, there is some routing that gets done. In the case of a text message, the BrandMeister network keeps track of the last repeater where each station was heard. When trying to deliver a text message, it will only send the message through that particular repeater. Also, it can only deliver the message if the radio is turned on.

If the user is no longer if the coverage area of the last repeater to hear them, the message will not be delivered.

Hytera and Motorola radios have systems (RRS and ARS) that will ping repeaters when the user moves from on repeater to another. I don't think this is available on other radios.
