    This morning I woke up, sent a text at 6:58 am and then tried again at 7:20 ish. Didn't work. I have 3 bars and have tried many times and each time it fails. I don't have the little green and red up and down arrows right beside the signal bars but I have bars. wtf is happening? I keep trying right now but it still isn't working:mad::thinking::mad::thinking::mad:

    Hold the lock button until the little menu pops up and make sure data is activated

    I had this problem on my captivate as well. Sometimes though i could send but not receive then other times I couldn't send but would get texts. Only thing I found that fixed it was a new sim card. Then it was problem free until it would start again. I would say in the 6 months I had the phone i went thru 3 Sims.

    As for data being on that should only matter for picture messages not regular texts.

    I just got my husband an infuse he should be getting it in the mail tomorrow. Hoping he doesn't end up with this issue or its going right back.

    First thing - it could be the network. Ask a friend to send txt back to you, and see it it arrives properly. If it does then it the network is ruled out and you can go ahead and troubleshoot your phone.

    If its your phone, then try this..
    Go to the Messaging application, click on menu and clear data. This clears all the background junk that has been gathering. Try results again..

    If not, I have to opologize ahead of time, backup and hard reset. This has always worked - you might be getting texts from weeks back!!
