Motorola Milestone :: Errors With Texting / Unable To Send Texts
Jun 23, 2010
I got a Milestone at about Christmas time and have loved it, but now I have one slight issue with it. I can't send a text message, and whenever I attempt to send a message, it simply comes back saying "Message Not Sent". It is highly frustrating.I have been into the Phone Information, under Testing, and it says that my GSM Disconnects is inactive, and the fail is because No Error. This is frustrating and I have no idea how to fix the Problem.This is my last resort before I call my service provider and see what I can do, and I would much rather solve this myself.Any help would be highly appreciated,
I have Verizon and I just got the new DX.I can make and receive calls, make and receive emails, access internet/market and everything except for send/receive text messages.I have unlimited texting on my plan so it's not that, all texts refuse to be sent and I'm not getting any incoming messages either.anyone else get this?What's a fix?
I just got the phone yesterday, and realized I can send contacts via SMS! I was using the hero before and you could easily do it via vcard.For example, I want to send Mr Jones a contact number of a client, I can easily SMS him through contacts the client's contact numbers(emails and whatnots).However, this feature seems lacking on the Milestone. You can attach just about everything else except a person's contacts!Did I overlook something here? Or it just doesn't come with it?
I installed the Quick Settings App a while back because my brother said it was a good app. I didn't really use it so I uninstalled it. But now I can't send picture texts (MMS). He can't either. I found a thread which talks about a fix but the fix doesn't work. I started this thread because the title of that thread isn't very clear and it keeps getting buried. how to fix this without doing a hard reset? I would really like to avoid a hard reset.
Even after numerous factory resets, through both the Volume Down+Send+End and Settings>Privacy>Factory Reset methods, my Eris has been unable to send or receive texts, and will not allow me to send or receive calls. When I try to text, I get an SMS error with Cause Code: 34 and Error Class: 3. When I try to call, I get an automated error saying that my phone can't be authenticated at this time, and am advised to call #8899. Even after doing so, I get the same authentication error. Wi-Fi seems to work correctly, and my Google and Facebook accounts all sync pretty much perfectly. Is anyone else having any kind of problem like this? And, either way, does anyone know of any possible alternatives that may fix the problem besides a total replacement of the phone?
I got the milestone for my birthday, and love it, but now it has some issues. when I'm texting someone, they will send a message, and my phone will receive it over and over again. (a five message conversation turned into 164 messages overnite)
when i first got the milestone it worked fine but then it wouldn't send my messages. i can receive sms and surf the web. now when i make calls my 3g just drops and i lose the call. i try ed reseting the phone back to fact settings it worked for like 2 messages.my yahoo messenger works also.
I'm using the Milestone and I'm having a hard time finding out how to send a ringtone to another phone. My blackberry and pretty much every other phone has the ability to send a song through bluetooth.
i was wondering if there are any softwares now to connect the phone to the computer and send and receive sms through it... Basically my brother is considering buying an Android but the fact that there isnt a software to connect to the computer and send and receive sms is something that pulls him back..
If I make a spelling error when typing a text but dont notice it until the text is finished it can be quite difficult to correct. Its a case of trying to insert the cursor by the error and then backspacing. This can be quite tricky. Or is there another way to do it? On my laptop there are directional arrows which allow me to take the cursor back through the text without deleting letters on the way. Is there an equivalent on the phone keypad?
I have a Motorola Milestone (aka Droid). I've managed to set up my Milestone to sync my work contacts and calandar via exchange. However, I cannot get my email for some reason - and there's no error message to point me in the right direction. I've tried sending emails too, and that doesn't work. They just sit in my outbox, no matter how many times I refresh. Obviously, I've tried all the obvious things - double checked my settings (which must be ok, given my Calander and Contacts synced, plus I can get to the global address book). I've tried to refresh the mailbox, but nothing happens. When I go to 'Accounts' there is an orange line next to my work account, which perhaps means something is wrong. I wondered if it's perhaps my work's firewall blocking me but again, if I can get into my calander and contacts.
I finally installing 2.1 with all English menus.that worked in china.However I cant get my contacts and calendar to sync with google.The mail client works fine with no hitches.But I cant add the google account.when I enter in the full server name:
the next button is grayed out.the only way it will let me proceed is if I remove the https:// and then it try to connect.but it then says :" unable to open connection to server"Any help for what is more than likely an extraordinarily simple problem?
I own a Motorola milestone and was trying to connect it to my car stereo via bluetooth. I am easily able to connect it for voice calls but i am unable to do so for music.can someone please tell me if milestone can be connected to car stereo for music and if so how?
This usually happens after some wifi activities, but i've noticed that whenever my wifi fails to connect or sometimes even when i disconnect from a wifi server, i lose my data connection (im operating on edge with rogers).
This can usually be solved if i restart my phone but obviously thats not ideal. anyone else have this problem? is it a known issue?
I switch to milestone after year with nokia. which the last one was 5800 the best thing about the nokia is that i could transfer all my info easily between the phones now i cant transfer all the info i collect all this years yo the milestone
i synced between my nokia to Microsoft outlook and now ho i can transfer all the info to my milestone. i have to transfer my contacts and calender or ill get crazy.
I have a rooted T-Mobile Galaxy Note II running its stock 4.1.2 ROM (Eww, TouchWiz. I know). Whenever I text my mom through the stock messaging app, it looks like it went through on my end, but she does not receive the message. She's on an AT&T Galaxy S3 running stock 4.1.2 and also uses the default messaging app. I even get a delivery report on my end when I have the option enabled.
Here's where it gets interesting: she can send and receive texts fine to all her other contacts, and I can with mine as well. My girlfriend is on the same carrier and plan as me and has no issues texting my mom and I have no issues texting my dad who is on the same carrier and plan as my mom. There's something uniquely wrong with the way our two devices interact.
We have both rebooted our devices, cleared the app as well as system cache on both devices and deleted and re-added each other as contacts, all to no avail.
I have couple of contacts which have multiple numbers so I added all of those under a single name Now, when I try to message those names, starting from "new message", somehow typing the names in "To" bar does not thrown those names. Instead, it shows some weird number (e.g. 2229 etc) when typing those names Net result, the contacts are not accessible from messaging application. Now I need to go to the contacts to text them.
The native app seemed a little buggy with my att.net accounts so I installed K9 after reading through the forums. I was unable to send email through the native app, and it seems I can't send email with K9 either. This is with att.net as well as another server which synced well (folders and all) on the native app.
My issue is that I am unable to send mail using an email account on my web domain - I get a generic message that states something similar to the email is unable to be sent. I was previously able to email on my old Blackberry using the same account, so I would think it'd be possible on the Droid X. I have tried all ports I saw suggested in the forums on my web host's site but none of the three I tried work for me. I am able to receive mail without any problems and my web host confirmed the below settings should be correct. I know for certain that the user name requires the full email address, rather than just the user name portion. Please see below and let me know what I need to change to get this working. Thanks in advance for your help. SMTP server: mail.redszone.com Port: 25 Username: (myemaillogin)@redszone.com Password: (my email password) Use secure connection: unchecked Verify certificate: unchecked
I'm getting some errors I can't seem to get rid of. The application I'm working on installs alright but when it's started it stops the loading process telling me an error has occurred. Upon looking at the log there are ten apparent issues all revolving around the graphic files for the application.
DEBUG/(1724): unable to unlink '/data/data/com.blah.blah/files/ special_button.png': No such file or directory (errno=2)
That error happens 10 times..one for every image in the raw folder. The Manifest has multiple intents and activitys and is structured like this
It's the second activity that seems to be having the problem. The first activity is .MainActivity and the second one is .ThemeProvider and .Screen java files. Everything in the first activity runs perfectly only the second one has issues. I have tried everything I can think of to get rid of these errors so the images will load and stop causing the error and termination of that part of the application. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've been stuck for a few weeks on this.
I am unable to send or receive/download MMS messages on my droid with neither Handcent nor factory installed messaging program. When i try to send/ download MMS, it just hangs (little icon keeps going in circles like it's working but never finishes, nor are the messages sent). It's not reception. It's not impatience ( it's been hanging for days sometimes).
What could be happening when you get that message after you hit "send". WiFi or 3G is at full strength, so I don't think it's a connectivity issue. It's happened a few times over the last few days. A little red envelope appears with something that looks like a timer. Message eventually sends, but several minutes later.
