    RAZR MAXX HD: I get a notification (several times her hour = very annoying) showing a triangle with a "!" in it. I pull down the notification screen and it says "I message not sent". I touch that notification and the "Outbox" folder with a "(1)" appears above the "to" address and subject of a message that I tried to send last week. The message was a video I had shot but it was too large to send.

    I touch the old message header and get the screen: Cannot open message / Message is currently being sent and is unable to be opened / OK" If I touch the "OK" at the bottom, the !triangle disappears but the unsent message header remains and the !triangle soon returns with an audio alert. If I touch the blue "X" on the previous screen, all is normal for a few minutes and then the !triangle with audio alert returns.

    I have tried rebooting (power button and volume down) at various stages of the process and nothing helps. I'm hoping that next week's upgrade to JB 4.1 with improved notifications will fix the problem but have my doubts. In the meantime, the constant notifications are unbearable. Any suggestions (short of doing a hard reset)?

    if the old message is there why not hold down on it and delete it?

    try that, otherwise you may need to clear the stored cache in your text message app

    delete the message and retry sending? sounds like sending thru email, so check those settings as well. as per another thread, some email providers allow sending only on their connection (ie wifi if you're at home).

    I fixed this by putting my phone in airplane mode and then deleting the messages.
