    The only few times I've experienced this with txt messages was when I had a txt coming in the same time I was sending one out... Just my 2 cents.. If your having multiple convos...


    Wahooo for 400 posts!! Where does the time go?? :beer::beer::beer::beer::beer:

    Well that must explain my problem cause in my house on wifi and I leave mobile network on but it usually is disconnected cause my phone is using wifi but I only get 1 bar my signal sucks. I've been using yahoo messenger more with one person cause it always goes through. But I've seen a couple times while connected to my wifi my 3G light up. But I guess it's not a handcent thing it's my signal inside my house. But So that tells me my EVO 3D had a better signal in my house then this phone cause I never had problems with text on the EVO or the 3D like this. Now of course there is no LTE here and my phone is on CDMA only and then it's on Automatic where it says Sprint only and Automatic.

    I just saw this reply so it's a Sprint problem wonder why I haven't heard of many other people having this problem. I was just thinking my signal in my house is worse than on my 3D which I would hope not since this is a better newer phone. And keeping CDMA on only and not LTE shouldn't make a difference. I have no 4G or LTE here. Hopefully it will be fixed soon if it's a Sprint thing.

    No, I think you didn't read all of what I said. When I first got my phone (launch day) it was that weekend I was having issues and when I called I got the message. It seemed to kind of clear up shortly afterwards so I think Sprint fixed their problems but it wasn't until days later I was informed of all the text messages I was missing still. These issues continued up to last night when I still wasn't getting every message that was being sent. One of which was a buddy that has VZW and if he sends me a message of over 160char I'm not getting either the first or in some cases the second message. He swears that I'm the only one having this problem so while I can't say that 100% the problem is on my end with him it seems that this is likely. I'm quite frustrated with this. I've never had a problem with SMS and in fact I have had less problems with Sprint than VZW when it comes to SMS. Now that I have an all new Evo LTE it's embarrassing that I don't even get SMS from my friends and they all say I need an iPhone now. Hard for me to convince all my iPhone friends how much better Android is when I can't even get text messages reliably. :mad:

    yeah... yesterday around 6pm central usa...
    i did not get 4 text from 3 different people on my sprint text app.

    but when I logged on to my google voice account on my pc... they were there.
    NOTE: google voice is has always been getting me text.. that way i can communicate faster/easier while i work.

    sprint text app did start to work again after 8 pm. but the missing text never came in

    I'm having this same problem as well, and my good friend who picked up her Evo 4g LTE on day one as well is having the same issue and a profile, prl update doesn't fix it ...either my texts won't send or they say they didn't but they did. Or my personal favorite my text will only send half of what I wanted to say.. and that's in a normal text under 1200 chars like 25 words etc it will only send half?? Cdma radio only, no WiFi, no LTE, and it still happens!? It's driving me insane! So I hope this is fixed soon because I hate re sending texts when they sent but it shows they didn't? :(

    Yep.. me too. Random texts not sending. One sent a whole 6 days later!! And deleting the message from Handcent doesn't work - its like its lost on the Sprint network somewhere...

    I don't get this but my friend claims all his text send instantly except to me they take a few seconds or longer. I said maybe Sprint is having problems and your problem is only with me cause your not texting anyone else on Sprint. I am still having an occasional text not sending but mines better than it was and at work my text are sending in the spots they used to send on my 3D they weren't last week but now they are. So I don't know.

    Been having the same problem since day 1. It happens sporadically throughout the day and is really annoying when you send a text not being reassured it is actually being sent. Same issue with incoming texts and phone calls. It's like the network doesn't work just on my phone during those times because no one else in my house is having issues with the Sprint network. Getting phone replaced. Hopefully the new one will work.

    Mines gotten better but still an occasional text won't send. I set up my Handcent now to notify me and it tells me the text was sent. But since my text got better at work and I was starting to get text and be able to send them in the same spots as my 3D I was happy. Twice none of my text came through till I got home from work then they all came through at once but mines been better for some reason. But still not a 100% like my 3D. I never had a circle still spinning on Handcent on my 3D or my OG EVO. And when it stays spinning one day my coworker said my message came through 5 times and one day I saw it said sent and the circle was still spinning that's only happened once. I almost was gonna get a new phone but then stuff was working better and I hate having to start all over with everything the way I want it now.

    I've been having the same issue for about 3 weeks now. Seems like I have no trouble receiving texts, but about 1/15 texts that I try to send will never get sent. The little icon in Handcent just keeps spinning forever. Problem occurs whether I'm using Handcent or stock messaging, whether I'm on 3G or WiFi, whether my phone is rooted or unrooted. I was about to do a factory reset until I saw this here thread in which people are saying it's a Sprint issue. Well I hope for Sprint's sake they resolve it because it's making me regret renewing a 2-year agreement with them.

    Couldn't have said it better also I am unrooted and experience the same exact problems WiFi or 3g...using handcent or stock messenger it doesn't make a difference and sometimes I won't get texts for hours upon hours from people il end up hanging with and then all of a sudden a text they sent me 2-5 hours ago finally shows up as I'm with them... So sprint seriously get it together!! First no g.wallet at all and now this come on!! Where's the software updates to fix all the bugs that we are all having with this device!??!

    I've been waiting on an update too they need to get with it. Glad it's not only me. I have a bad signal at work and my text before on my 3D would only send in certain spots well they weren't sending text weren't coming through they would all come through at once when I got home it was weird. But now I am getting some text at work and I can send in certain spots again but I am stil occasionally getting that hung up text and I tried the stock too cause I thought it was Handcent at 1st but t's not the circle keeps spinning on Handcent and the stock I see the icon still there. Usually I copy what is trying to send delete it then paste it and send it again and it usually sends. But my friend claims it's mostly to me but when he sends me a text it spins for 10 seconds or more and it never has done that before. We use Yahoo Messenger a lot. I sure hope it gets resolved soon.

    I'm still having this issue texts arriving hours or even a day or two late.. and sometimes I don't get them at all. Or my phone will say it sent but it didn't or it will send it several times hours later.. or it will say it has sent and it hasent or it will say it sent and it don't for a day or longer? So this has got to be a pretty decent issue and my huge question is where is sprint or google or HTC with any comments about the wallet issue, and the texting issue which both haveto be widespread.. so the question is if and when this will be fixed? I'd love to know that's for sure cause the texting thing is quite a nousance!!

    I wonder about mine also and I seem to send alot more then I receive. Not sure if I have idiot friends who don't reply or it is the phone. Just a pet peeve of mine for people not to return a message even if it is to say don't bother me. Guess I have to test .. Maybe we truly to need a software update!!

    I'm still receiving texts hours late and some even a day late, and iv come to notice that if I shut my phone off and turn it back on il get messages I never got which are from conversations which occurred days ago or my device will send messages that I thought sent but never did days ago... And now my phone when someone calls me is apparently going straight to voicemail and it never rings on my end nor do I get the voicemail they left for atleast a few hours or even a day!! :( :( :( and my friend with an ltevo is having all these same darn issues :( :( anyone else experiencing these voicemail, calling issues as well as texting? And do we have any word from sprint?

    I haven't had any issues with texts or calls, it seems like only some people are experiencing these problems.

    Yeah today a friend replied right back to me and it came 4 hours later. Ridiculous!

    Yeah I also have noticed that when I restart my phone occasionaly it will send texts to people, like texts I thought went through hours or even days ago that never did go through? Then they reply like what?? So its also sending texts that should have sent hours or even days ago after you restart your phone well atleast mine is and so is my friends (she has the LTEVO as well )

    I've had this issue with Handcent on my HTC Hero for quite a while (the wheel just spins and it takes 15-20 minutes or more before it sends).

    I've noticed that the issue definitely seems related to the WiFi, specifically when there is a WiFi connection made or a WiFi connection dropped. If I'm texting as I'm leaving my office (where I was connected to WiFi) or if I'm texting as I arrive home (where it finds and starts to connect to that WiFi), those situations account for about 90% or more of the problems I've had with this. It would make sense if Handcent was connecting through WiFi, then got hung up if WiFi dropped in the middle of sending. But it's been happening for 6-9 months, so doesn't that pre-date Handcent working through WiFi? Maybe the cause on the LTEVOs is different, but on my Hero there's a definite correlation. Maybe it's something with the antennas both trying to work too hard at the same time an bogging down the processor, I don't know.

    Not asking for help with my Hero, btw. I should be dumping that in favor of the LTEVO or GSIII within the next month.

    Okay so google wallet finally just got an update on my end as well as handcent sms so hopefully our texting issue might be fixed now if it was a handcent issue not sprint and google wallet I haven't tried just yet has anyone else got these updates and have you noticed the same issues!?


    Okay so google wallet still a no go, all I can see is the status message when you open wallet they changed the wording a little bit that's it. But my texting issue seems to be resolved so far so maybe it was handcent not sprint :) :)

    Oh good I'm getting the updates now. I hope my Handcent starts doing better. But my signal does suck in my house and earlier a few minutes later my text was still spinning. I just hit copy then delete it and repaste it and hit send and the second time it usually sends pretty quick it's weird. So I hope this update fixes it.

    Hi everyone.

    I'm using the stock text app and I'm experiencing problems like the text would not send. I have to restart the phone like 2 times a day and then I would get all my texts and than my texts go out too. I did all updates on the phone except the HTC update. Any suggestion? Can sprint store determine what's wrong with the phone?

    This is one I'd take in to Sprint immediately. Another option is calling Sprint to see if they can troubleshoot.

    Seems like a lot of folks are experiencing the "texting issue". I'm thinking it was a bad stock of phones from the initial supply because I had the problem on mine until I swapped for a new one after a week of frustration. My new one doesn't have any issues (knocks on wood).
