Hopefully it will get fixed in an update ASAP. Other people on other forums are having the same issue. Also experiencing missed calls and texts coming in hours/days later. This is totally unacceptable. Whatever "reset" they do over the phone is only a temp fix....smh.

So I took the phone to the sprint store. The guy told me to do a hard reset (i didnt really wanted to do that cause of previous issues with other people so didnt do it), he updated the profile and prl (i did it this morning too), and he said if the problem will occur again than bring it in and they give me a new one.

Has anyone else noticed the texting issue still occuring frequently? Mine only happens mainly when I text another sprint user..delayed messages..but iv also noticed when I power my device down then back on I get all kinds of texts from people saying what are you talking about or huh? Basically my phone sends texts that should have sent days ago or hours ago that never did when I restart my device even after that ota update!!! This is rediculous!!!!

I also have had this problem; seems that it occurs sporadically. Cannot predict when it will happen.

Aside from the message I was receiving earlier since then my texting has been worse then ever before..now I Haveto resort to facebook messenger..I get some messages then others I don't..on/off from different people with different carriers I have full-medium signal in my whole home town..iv never had this issue until I got my evo LTE 4g so I just emailed sprint this is ridiculous!

And my best friend has the same device and she is having the same exact issue! Iv updated my prl, my profile etc a thousand times and nothing improved...and since that system update it has only became worse when it decides to act up its worse then before it basically works when it wants too..and when I restart my device it sends messages I thought sent hours or even days ago... Ughhh

Probably bc it was a Samsung. lol

I have this problem off and on. Most recently today. It seems to clear up on its own, which makes me think it's a network issue. Ugh.

I've had a few delays in sending, but even then it takes less than a minute to send and that doesn't happen often - they usually just go right away. They apparently show up for the recipient right away because I get fast replies to them. Almost everyone I text with is on Sprint.

I think it was a network issue too cause mine was worse in the beginning when I got my phone. The circle thing on Handcent would spin and spin and sometimes text wouldn't send and sometimes someone would say they got it twice. And sometimes I would get a reply while it was still spinning. Then all my text would come through at once when I got home from work and the ones that would send in certain spots at work on my 3D wouldn't send on the new EVO. But now my text usually send right away if not a few seconds after. I have my Handcent set to tell me the text has sent.

But the other night a text came through late from a friend saying are you working and she knows I get off at 11 and i shouldn't of replied that late cause it was probably and old text and she doesn't have a good signal in her house so it probably just never sent. So I have problems still every so often with it taking a bit longer to send but not with the circle spinning and spinning 10 minutes later like before. My pictures were taking long too and the other day I sent one and it went right away I was shocked. But they told me they just updated a tower near me too so who knows. But mine is much better than it was in the beginning.

When this happens to me, I often get an outright Handcent failure, i.e. it says the text failed and I would have to tap and re-send it for it to go. I notice that forcing a PRL and profile update (i.e. re-setting the radio) usually can clear it up immediately. Very frustrating.

Also, I rebooted my phone today and it sent out a ton of old texts to people. That was not amusing. Not sure if that's a Handcent thing or phone thing though. I am considering uninstalling Handcent for this reboot cycle.

Mine had been better and last night and tonight I left work and all my text came through at once. I get a lot of tweets texted to me from radio stations and Good & EVO and a friend had replied to a text and they all came through at once as I got outside from work tonight. I thought mine was better. I update my profile and PRL everytime this happens and I reboot every so often. I am hoping it's just a Sprint thing and not my phone.

I sent my daughter a text yesterday, after I pushed Send it vanished & doesn't show on my phone or hers. I can't rule out operator error though, because I sent it while at work & I'm always paranoid someone will walk up behind me. Other texts are behaving normally as far as I can tell.

I've been having it off and on. Today did a PRL and profile and after the profile it wanted to reboot the phone. That was something new.

I suddenly lost the ability to send or receive texts completely except through my Google Voice number.

Did a wipe and reset and even loaded a new ROM and still nothing!

Thought I'd share this update from our Samurai, posted just a bit ago in the root forum -

The latest update to 4.0.4 seems to have fixed my texting problem, it was getting bad. Every few texts was getting "stuck" on "send" forever. I would have to copy the contents, delete it and re-send. But it seems to properly send now, even the ones that take longer that would get "stuck" do send.

When this thread started I was hardly ever having the issue, then I started sporadically seeing it more and more so I'm hoping this update fixes it too.

Hey guys I'm really hoping you can help me

As of 2 hours ago my evo won't send or receive txts. I'm rooted so idk if I should have put this in the all things root section. I'm running Meanrom.

When I go to send a txt I get a red triangle and a message saying the text was unable to send. This is when I try to send a txt to anyone. I'm also not receiving txts. I wiped and restored a known good backup. Turned the phone off and on, Did a "battery pull", updated PRL and Profile. Sprint says there are no outages. They told me to update my PRL and Profile which I did. Still having the issue...

I've never had an issue sending or receiving txt before. This is the first time and it was working fine this morning.


Edit: just wanted to also add my Internet connection is fine. I'm receiving email. Even Google now cards come through fine. I can also make calls and receive them just fine

Prl/profile is really about all you can do on your end.

It sounds like network issues to me. I had this problem off and on for about a month


You can call them and have a workorder placed on your local tower as well.

Yeah ill see if it works itself out by the time I'm off work. I'm posting this from my phone so Internet is working just no txts. I'm going to see if pictures go though. If no luck my end of work I'll give sprint a call again. Thanks buddy

Here's a screen shot of the message. I don't get it.. I didn't change anything. In fact my phone was in my toolbox I had sent txts and a pic message this morning no problem.

Usually if I had a problem like every once in a great while I would get a sound or a return message saying that it wasn't delivered. I have never seen it happen like this before

Same symptoms mine had rather randomly.

The girlfriend was never too happy when it occurred.

Call, complain, tell them you've done prl profile updates, they'll want to do something on their end to reset the connection, and then they'll finally place a work order

Ok will do.. I shouldn't have to mention root to them should I? I'm thinking it's a network thing too. Surprisingly they didn give me the ole "tower is out in your area" explanation earlier when I called lol.

I'll keep you updated.

No, don't mention root. They'll just tell you to unroot it.

There's plenty if things a user can do to screw up the phone with root access, so the first thing they'll tell you to do is unroot so they know what's on the device.


You should be on a sense rom when you call

Ok cool, I'm on a sense rom (meanrom4.3) I was on 4.4 but I nandroid'ed back to 4.3 just to make sure something wasn't up with the rom.

I'm out of work in a half hour, still no txts in or out. And I figured out the pic message didn't go through either. Even though it didn't give an error code. So ill be calling sprint shortly.

We're back up and running. The sprint tech told me to turn the phone off. Then she did something on her end and told me to power back on. Problem solved.

She also mentioned there were no service outages. That it was the device but wouldn't tell me what she did.. and told me that if it happened again it could be a faulty device but I doubt it. Seems to me like something just got jammed in the matrix. But I'm glad to be back to normal that's for sure. Wish I had more helpful info

Default no text messages being sent or received...

My wife's phone stopped sending and receiving all text messages. We had gochat since we got the phone on launch day and yesterday the message error that message could not be sent started so I removed the program only to find the same thing happens with the stock message app. Phone is stock.

Is there a setting that has gone sour?

Try holding the power button and resetting it. If that doesn't work call Sprint. They will reset something on their end and you should be good to go. That is what they did for me. But unfortunately couldn't tell me exactly what is was that they did.

I've had this randomly happen a couple times, sometimes it's just network problems & it fixes itself.

Happened to me, it took a call to Sprint tech support, the real ones, not the first level that reads from the screen to get it working again.

I had to get a new phone my phone was acting up and stuck in a rebooting mode and they ran a diagnostics and ordered me another one which he said happened to be a new one and now my text are doing what my old phone did in the beginning. The circle is just spinning and I don't think there sending. Woke up the other morning to one still spinning and tonight 1 out of 3 it was still spinning but he may have gotten it. I am using Handcent too...

Default Mine is Fixed

I had this problem all day today and it just cleared. Whomever posted that it had something to do with network testing I think was correct. Although, I am still waiting for my LTE light to come on!!

Default Text Messages Showing wrong times

I have heard of this issues before where wrong text messages times from incoming messages are always the wrong time. Sending is normal. Does anyone know a fix for this?

I am now having the texting issue fairly consistently since the last update. Texts show they went out, have a time, but haven't. Reboot the phone and they do go out and the time on them changes. Also having major issues with notifications. Randomly I will get no notifications but when I hit the power button to turn the screen on I get inundated. Seems like there is some queueing problem in the OS and the whole sms system goes into some loop or something. Battery life seems be a little bit worse when the first issue occurrs. Need to check CPU usage next time.

Default Receiving same sms text multiple times

I'm receiving the same sms text multiple times. They are all with the same datestamp but will be received delayed up to an hour later. I see lots of threads on this in forums for other phones. But no real solutions.
The other phone in this case is my wife's iphone on the same network/same plan.

I've cleared the cache in the messaging app just now. I hope it helps.
It doesn't happen on every message. It didn't happen with the one she sent this morning. But when it plays my notification sound when I'm trying to go to sleep and it is the message she sent over an hour ago it is real annoying.

Here is a screenshot:

I take it this just started happening no? possibly network issues in your area. Sprint is undergoing
upgrades to its system so these things can happen from time to time most likely its NOT your phone.

do you use an airvana/airave? if you dont know what this is then you dont use it.

if it keeps up, give sprint a call. give them your zip code and they can tell you if there is work going on in your area.

does this happen from anyone who messages you? inter-carrier as well? or just sprint to sprint? if its only from people not on sprint, could be just some hiccups in the system. give it some time to correct itself.

of you need to rest at night, just disable notifications or put phone on silent.

Yes it is only semi-recently. I guess it could be network issues.
I don't have an airrave thing.
I rarely get text messages from other people.
So I don't know if it happens on other carriers.

I send a text and over and over and I get a message that says message not sent from handcent but it sends the message over and over and I see a red x and it's been going on since this am. At work home and in the car nothing will send. I even tried Messages app that came with phone same thing.

Fwiw same thing happened to me about a month ago. I called sprint and they reset something on their end and I was good to go. It's worth a shot.

Thanks it's weird and this is a new phone they gave me at a Sprint store while I was on vacation cause my phone died.

Edit: I have sprint on the phone and I'm not even receiving text either. She's checking something she said well you got good coverage. She said they can do something I hope it works. I'm going out after work tonight and need to be able to text. I don't talk on my phone I text and email. I have Yahoo Messenger me and one friend use he doesn't like texting. And I may try Tikl again I used to have it. She's sending some service update to my phone and had me shut it off and she's sending a couple more she said. Let's hope this works.

Those are the exact same symptoms I had. Wasn't receiving txts/couldn't send them out. I could call and surf the Web though. I too was in a good service area. They would tell me what they did but they reset something and told me to turn the phone off and back on and I was good to go. Good luck!
