    Hi friends. I had a Samsung Conquer which had an untimely run-in with a parking lot pavement thus cracking the screen. I have Sprint and my upgrade policy thing allowed me to get a LG Optimus Elite. The activation took place fine, my contacts/pictures transferred over and I can send/receive phone calls normally. However, I'm not able to send or receive texts; whenever I attempt to send a message, it says the message was not able to be sent. I tried going to Menu->Settings->Update profile, but that didn't help. Any help?

    Have you tried a battery pull, if that doesn't work, you will have to call sprint for them to send a refresh signal to your phone.

    Just curious - do you use Google Voice at all?

    Before calling Sprint, try this:

    Go under your settings, phone updates I believe, and update PRL, then go and Update Profile.

    That "should" get the activation going. If you can't get any data, connect via WiFi, it'll download. :)

    If that fails follow Don's advice and call Sprint.
