    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?

    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

    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.
