Default Texts problem

Hi
For some reason as of this morning my text messages arent sending or receiving. If i take the battery out and put back in then they send and receive. But then it stops working again. This is on either the stock app or Chomp. Any ideas? Thanks

Do you have something running in the backround that's putting it to sleep, or turning off the radio?

I would try turning off wifi, to see if you can send the text over your carrier's network. Or alternatively, see if you can connect to the Internet when you have this issue.

It may be a network connection issue, and your rebooting the phone is correcting the problem, but just turning wifi off and then back on may be faster.

Hi. Thanks for the replies. I think I must have some corruption because the time isnt changing at the top of the screen,and i cant download anything from Play Store- it sticks at 100% and then nothing happens. Also my battery is going down ridiculously fast, I have lost 13% in 15 minutes. Unfortunately I think I am going to have to restore. I have AVG antivirus but am starting to think I have a virus even so

Me and tech aren't doing well at the moment, I had to restore my ipad yesterday as the 3g would not turn on.

If it is a virus it's odd that it would affect both an Android and iPad. That would be a pretty advanced virus.

I just tried to restore using the two methods. Using the menu absolutely nothing happens - using the three button trick the phone just restarts!
