    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    What brand/model phone do you have? It sounds like you may need to reprogram the phone....

    So, tonight we were supposed to turn back the clocks. I'm guessing something struck us Eco users around 1 or 2 am...Maybe we can get a firmware update. Guys, keep me posted on what's up.

    It has nothing to do with the time change. Sprint is suffering a nationwide SMS outage and is hoping to have it back up by 6:00 a.m. CST.

    Thanks for that incredibly abrupt, opinionated, yet unlinked factual evidence...P.S. I like links, lol.

    I need not provide a link; you do not require one. The fact remains

    There is no sms outage. evo users go to settings then to software update and finally update profile :) hope this helps!

    So then all those BlackBerry and regular Sprint phones experiencing the same thing were just imagining things?

    Update profile didn't fix it; Sprint did.

    I was reporting a simple fact. Sprint suffered a nationwide SMS outage. They themselves stated it.

    Just thought it might help no need to get offended...
