Have you tried updating PRL, Profile, and Software?

Otherwise it could be a network issue. Call sprint they may have something on your account or they might have to reactivate your phone to your account.

I actually ran into issues with messages (email and text) right after I did the update. I did a soft and hard reset and it didn't solve the issue. I noticed that it had something to do with 3G not connecting.

I called Sprint tech support and they went through a soft reset with me, but they told me that there's something that they actually do on their end that fixes the issue. After I did the soft reset and they did whatever it is they do on their end during the process, the issue was resolved and all my emails/texts had no problem delivering.

Try it out and see if that'll fix the issue.

It normally will automatically re-send, once it's able to, but if not just long press on the message and it'll give you a pop-up prompt to enable re-sending.
