Welcome Ines Silva to the AF community

Hopefully i can try and help you with the issue you are having!

First off can you still send messages with the default messaging app, or is the phone entirely not able to send messages?

Because if it can't it could have something to do with your APN settings.

Otherwise try rebooting the battery by removing the battery and restarting the device. If that doesn't work try reinstalling the app again.

If none of these work please get back to me and i can try and think of a better solution

Hmm, I am assuming you have tested this theory with a friend, by sending them a message and it doesn't go through.

Are you allowed to attempt to send a message, like can you start a new thread in the application and attempt to send it just never goes through?

I don't really know if this will work, but have you tried doing a factory reset to it, I know you already did it and all but it might fix this issue you are having.

Have you gone through the settings for the device just to double check everything is correct?

Is this only when you try sending picture messages? Is your stock messenger enabled or disabled? Are you rooted?

Try clearing the data on the app and see if that works.

Yep what they said above. Also if you're rooted did you restore the app with a backup and restore app? If you did uninstall and reinstall. Actually maybe try uninstalling and reinstalling even if you downloaded from the play store

Welcome to Android forums Inęs Silva, I hope we can help you out. I have moved your thread from the Introductions forum to the Galaxy Gio forums in hopes that other device owners can give you a hand.

The staff here will still be helping you out as best they can.

The handset app has been updated on the play store which fixes a bug when tying to send messages on some devices so hopefully it will solve your problem.
