Default suddenly my phone is unable to send text messages

so today my htc desire has decided that it won't send any text messages. phone calls work, signal is fine, but whenever i send a text it just buzzes and says it's unable to send. i last successfully sent a text yesterday (20th may) at 23:39. haven't installed any apps since or anything like that.

i am very frustrated. this is basic stuff here that a phone should be able to do. anyway, eventually it gives up and tells me:

"Unable to send message after multiple attempts."

any ideas?

this is very strange.

i put my three sim into a nokia phone, and a lebara network sim into the desire.

now texting works from both phones. it's only when my three sim is in the desire that it is unable to send.

There is a problem with Three's network today. Loads of my friends that use them cannot send texts.

Yeah same here. I phoned 3 and there's a pre-recorded message saying that they're aware of the problem and they're trying to sort it.

Phew, glad it's not just me... Wonder what's happened though?

I'm with Orange and have had this problem since getting the phone about 2 weeks back.

I don't send many messages, but I reckon about 1 in 4 fail and give me the above error messages

Any suggestions!?

I'm also with Orange, for the last few days my messages don't send, outgoing calls don't connect, incoming calls go straight to voicemail . I called Orange today, although the guy said there is a problem with the mast in my area, I don't feel at all confident, as one of my mates who is on an orange desire doesn't seem to have these problem .......I'm expecting a return call from them tomorow.....

I am on Orange and no such issues. Very rarely a text will fail but eventually does send. No problems with calls

Seems like Orange have an issue with their network or Desire ROM...

Having thought about it, I think 1 in 4 messages failing was a little ott on my part

Definitely more than I've experienced with other phones though

i have this same problem with froyo vodafone, and with 2.1 before that.

1 in about 4 messages fails...gets sent always eventually, however this is just not good enough. i still have to manually go and check wether the messages have been sent because if i dont it will bug me!
