    I have a ZTE phone. Lately I have been getting a notification saying that my messages have not been sent even though they have been sent. I have tried Handcent and it hasn't worked. Please help.

    Hello there!
    Welcome to the forums here :)

    Have you tried to just reboot the device?

    So the message is sent even though the app indicates that it did not?

    Stock messaging app I assume?

    Perhaps go into your manage applications, scroll down to the messaging app, clear the cache and data from the app, and try it again.
    You will probably lose your settings for the app and perhaps the texts for it when you clear the data and cache, so be aware of that if you want to save any texts, but that may help;)

    It still didn't work, but thank you for the suggestions.

    Who is the carrier? I'm wondering if it could be on the carrier end glitching recently.

    Is the notification for the message-sent failure appearing in the notification panel or is it a toast message that says it failed?

    My carrier is MetroPCS. And the notification is appearing in the notification panel.

    How long has this been occurring?
    Seeing as this is happening with other messaging apps such as Handcent, I'm wondering if it is a carrier issue.

    Unless someone else has another idea, I'm out of 'em :( Sorry.

    I hope you find a solution, or someone chimes in here...I'm curious as to what is going on too :)

    This worked for me. I use super backup and what I did was this...
    Open the app
    Click on SMS
    Backup all and click ok
    Then click delete messages
    Once deleted hit restore from the backup you just made
    If you have a lot of messages it might take a bit to restore them all. But once they are back the error message is gone

    This worked for me, but images and other media were lost, so be careful.
