    I am having issues with sending an SMS msg.
    The issue only occurs when I try to send a txt to someone in
    another country and a message thread already exists. I can
    send the initial txt to the o'seas phone, they reply and then I
    can not send any further txts to the o'seas phone. I have to
    delete the existing message thread with the o'seas phone to
    send a new txt.

    Any ideas?

    i cracked the sads with the stock sms due to not being able to send or receive a pic's etc....
    Now i use GOsms works fantastic! (with a GO theme to but i dont think you have to use the theme to use the GOsms)

    try a different sms service to see if its the sms itself or a problem with the phone.

    are you with a infinite or a cap plan? im with infinite which carries charges with outside Aust, so maybe there are some kind of restrictions too? have to read all that fine print.

    Because I can send the first txt message and it works on other phones
    I'm thinking it must be with the phone and not service.

    Regardless, I tried the GOsms app you recommended and that seems to work.

    Thanks loony.
