    Anyone else having problems with texts not sending?

    Last night an old friend and I were catching up through text. She has a new baby so we decided to text back and forth instead of speaking. Well, the texts were large in number. Suddenly, after so much correspondence, my texts stopped sending. It would simply say, "Sending message" for an endless amount of time and never actually send - it just goes back to the text I am responding to after a minute or so.

    This is still happening today.

    It has happened in the past (but only a few times throughout the years). Does anyone know if Metro suspends texts after a certain amount is reached for the day/so many in a frame of time, even though they are supposed to be limitless?

    If you cannot confirm openly, you can PM me. I highly doubt that it is my phone that has suddenly lost the ability to send texts; I think it has more to do with the above theory than anything else.

    Thank you,

    Tina

    Fixed. I turned my phone off then back on (which I had done numerous times last night to no avail).

    That was odd. Thank you missing2 for responding!

    When this happens you gotta have your switch reset. call customer service for that. this usually happens when your number is ported. its a well known issue among customer service so they will know what your talking about.

    just in case this happens again, an almost sure fire way to fix is:

    check your phone's programming. make sure the min, mdn, sid, etc. are all properly input into the phone's programming.

    update your prl (dial *228 and update roaming capabilities.)

    take the battery out of your phone.

    call dealer support/customer service. have them reset your account in the switch. if you have a ported number no matter how old, make sure there aren't any old min's in the switch for your account either.

    once that is done, put the battery back in and try it out.

    Thank you so much everyone for all of your help!

    n4zty Yep, wouldn't you know it... my Inbox and Outbox are full. But there is nothing I can do about that. Briefly, I am having trouble with my ex and am keeping the texts as evidence (if needed). I mean I literally only have 2-3 messages open in which to receive texts (which I constantly forward to email and delete on my phone). And my Outbox? Forget about it. It is filled for the same reason (which is why I need a new phone and am waiting anxiously for LTE).

    allmanallpimp Thank you for all of the valuable tips. They are invaluable. The experience was definitely not cool!

    Thanks to electropyro as well!

    It is a guy that I have to go through all of this (saving my texts) for... but thank you for the good luck and the additional information you just posted in your last reply.



    As always... with everyone here, it is appreciated.

    No need to apologize at all n4zty.

    And you are so right regarding the space key. I have babied this phone for the year and a half that I have owned it and wouldn't you know... that was the first thing to give me problems. Though not too much of a big deal, I do have to press it a few times in order for it to work with each text.

    Oh well, hopefully I get my BlackBerry 8530 as soon as it is available. I wish there were a way to pre-order to ensure I get one a.s.a.p. because as stated, with my situation, I need a new phone. I normally like to wait 2-3 months to see the reviews on new phones first before purchasing, but unfortunately, I do not have that luxury this time around.

    Thank you again fellow friends. Without you all, I surely would be lost!
