    Text Message Failures

    Is anyone other than me getting a lot of failures while sending text messages? Sometimes it takes me three or four times before a message goes through.

    On Android a failed text message looks like a white on red exclamation point and a notification that says "Message Not Sent".

    This is rather recent problem for me, but it could be the firmware on my phone.

    I'm mostly asking people who text a lot. I only really have a problem with about 10-20% of my messages. Not a lot, but enough that I have to babysit every message to make sure it goes through. It's annoying.

    this only happens to me when i'm sitting on the edge of having service... i.e. i move my phone by 2cm and i'm out of service area, hence failed delivery.

    The 10-20% is on rogers isn't it.

    I got 1 failed text, but 2 or 3 failed calls TO me.. when I have full bars.

    I just got these text messages saying someone tried to call when i had my phone right in front of me the entire time on normal ringtone.

    I think I had SMS issues when I first switched over. But none lately. At least none that I've noticed/been aware of.

    I'm in the same boat as jono. It happens about 10% of the times. I believe it happens during the same time when if somebody tries to call you, all you get is a missed notification text message from Wind.

    What I usually do is turn on/off the airplane mode and messages start to work fine again.

    Jono: BTW which android device and ROM if not custom are you using?
