Two problems

    Hello! I looked for solutions to these problems I'm having but haven't found anything relevant. I actually just got this phone new in October after I killed my LG Optimus Slider. I was frustrated with how slow the Optimus was, but still wanted the $25 per month plan from Virgin Mobile. I tried using CM7 when I first got the phone, but had some problems and went back to the stock ROM. I'm not sure what information will be necessary so I'll just put up some stuff: Android Version 2.2.2 Baseband Version PR5 Kernel version Apps_2.6.32.9-perf Software version 1010_2_039 I also have 622MB available for internal storage if that matters. Most of the time I have WiFi and 3G disabled, and Lookout mobile security running at all times. (I'm paranoid, but lazy about it. I read reviews a long time ago that said Lookout was good, but I don't know if it's still relevant.)

    My first problem is during calls, every so often I hear a beeping noise like a number being held down if I was dialing. I'm not dialing when this happens, and if I look at the phone the number-pad isn't even on the screen. I'd have to press the button to bring it up. I remember an old phone I had with Virgin Mobile before had a feature to beep every minute of use, but I couldn't find one for the Triumph. So far I've only noticed it with long distance calls, but none of the calls I make to local numbers are very long. It might not mean anything.

    The second problem I'm having is that 1/3 to 1/2 of all texts I send end up not being able to be sent. I get an notification saying "Message not sent. Select to review the message and try again." I just end up copying the contents of the text and then trying to send it in a new one. I have 3 bars for signal showing in my apartment, so that shouldn't be the problem, right? I'm at a loss for what to do.

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I don't have a lot of time to work on my phone at the moment though. It's the week before finals for me. Sorry that this is so long. I just wanted to get any relevant information in here.

    I suspect you are correct about the beep.
    Can't tell you how to disable it, because I haven't run stock in years.

    Are the texts you have problems with strictly sms? If they are mms (contain a subject and/or attachments) they are sent via data, so data will have to be turned on.
    sms is sent over the voice connection.

    For the text problem it's just sms. I was aware of the data requirement after a while, so I know that's not the issue. With my old phone I don't think it required me to have my data connection on to do MMS if it didnt have a picture or something, but maybe it did that in the background if it wasn't on. It was an LG Optimus Slider. I have no way of testing that though since it broke. Is it standard for the mms protocol to always require a data connection, or is that up to the rom programer? I think I know just enough about this stuff to realize how much I really don't know.

    Yeah, mms always uses data.

    when Sprint was doing tower upgrades in my area, I had texting issues (some wouldn't send, some would be received twice), so maybe that's a possibility?

    Kept forgetting to check back here. Well, the problem has persisted since I got the phone in October. I visited my parents over the holidays and it happened there too. Would trying a different ROM again make a difference?

    I don't know, hell it wouldn't make it any worse anyway (assuming some network issue). I expect you would find the whole experience to be better.
