Default Google Talk Not Receiving Messages

Hi,

I've seen such posts on the site earlier, however never found a solution to this problem.

I'm able to send messages from my Google Talk on Samsung Galaxy S running Android 2.1 update 1.

However, I'm not receiving any messages at all from anyone. This is making me feel horribly disabled.

Has anyone found any solution to this problem?

I tried several things like restarting the phone, clearing Google talk service and app cache, signing out and back in, etc. I don't want to reset the phone again and loose all my current setup. I've read some posts that reset also doesnt work.

Is there any solution to this problem? Please help!

Thanks,

Sam.

I have exactly the same problem and haven't found a solution. After performing a google search, I concluded that there is no solution. Look here

Here's how I fixed this:

I've had this problem for the last few days, and the only helpful information I could find (other than a bunch of people complaining about this problem) was here.

SO, I just did two things. One: a battery pull. Two: Deleted maybe... 10 images that I had taken, and saved on my Galaxy S. I had a TON of free space (something like 11 gig), so I wouldn't think deleting a few pics to make, say... 11.1 gig of free space would all the sudden make the chat app work, so I'm guessing it was the battery pull. It was dumb of me to do both things at the same time, because right now I don't know which worked (although I'm leaning towards the battery pull).

I guess if it happens again I'll try one "fix" at a time.

So yeah... try deleting some stuff that you've saved to your phone (not your SD card) and try pulling the battery, leaving it out for a minute or whatever, then putting it back in and seeing if that works. Try one, see if the chat app works. If not, try the other.

OH, and I found out that chat was working again by signing in to a different gmail account and then sending a chat request to the email address my phone is linked to. Before I did that, the account that's linked to my phone wasn't showing my phone as "online" in the little chat window on the different gmail account, but once I sent the chat invitation to the account my phone's connect to, everything worked as normal.


And yeah, when the chat app wasn't working, I could SEND to people, just couldn't see their text. Weird.

Bad Comrade, you are right with the battery pull, I was also having the same problem, and I attempted the battery pull on my HTC, and it worked. Anyone that is having this problem, definately give it a go, cause chances are it will definately work!

Thanks Bad Comrade for your suggestion.
