well I think I figured it out. I sent a mms this afternoon and it was trying to send it all that time. Now 8sms is trying to send it. I wonder why it didn't send (and still isn't). edit-I changed to a different apn and it worked. I guess I selected the wrong one before (I could still call out and get sms texts though). so it was my own fault all along. Thanks for talking me down from the ledge.
