    On some of my SMS threads next to the contacts name there is an X in a circle. Does anyone have any idea what that is? I have searched around the web with no luck. Thanks in advance.

    I think that means one or more message(s) didn't send.

    Ok so how do you figure out what message didn't send or how do you get rid of it? Honestly how did they not include any icon manual or guide with the phone astonishes me. I am long time Samsung fan and every product has extensive manuals and quite frankly this little X is pissing me off.

    I think you just double tap the icon of the text that failed, and it should either ask you if you want to send it again, or it will put the text into the input box and let you press send again.

    Is that person on your Google Talk list? It may be that they are offline in Google Talk and its just a way of notifying you of this fact in case you wanted to GTalk them instead of texting.

    Usually a failed message is an exclamation point inside a triangle.
