Re: Message Stuck in Outbox - and Cannot Send Text
I had the same issue today. I had a stuck message in the outbox and no messages created after it would get sent. I tried deleting all messages and all were deleted but the first. I then went to the message in the outbox and clicked on more and moved the message to drafts. I then was able to send a text message. I went to the drafts folder and then deleted the message. I hope this helps.

hi please see that instead of an unread message it might be a unsent message stuck in your outbox, seems you have cleaned your inbox and drafts folders but there is still something stuck in your Outbox folder
1 move the text that can't be deleted from OUTBOX to DRAFTS
2 if you still can't delete it go to SETTINGS-FLIGHT MODE select SHOW at STARTUP
3 switch phone OFF and ON again. select FLIGHT MODE at the beginning. switch phone OFF and ON again
4 select NORMAL MODE if asked. go to DRAFTS and delete that message
All you have to do is go to your message setting on your phone:
1. Open Messaging
2. On New message sellect options at bottom
3. Open settings
4. Open Text message, you should see: Message centre, message centre in use ect..
5. Open message centres this should go to next screen then open again, this screen should have : Message centre name & Message centre number (from your network provider you need to find out what is the message centres name & number are e.g in Australia it should be SMSC1 and number is +61411990001) then just manually enter these in there.
Had a similar problem myself (Sony Ericsson W890i) - just a plain old SMS message got 'queued' in the outbox, and all further messages I tried to send got sent to the outbox too without ever being sent.
What I did was delete all the messages that I could from the outbox (5 out of the 6 which had been 'queued'), and the one remaining message that I could not delete I cancelled, sent it to the Drafts folder, and then Saved it (to the SIM). I then switched off the phone, took out the SIM card, put it in my old Sony Ericsson handset, switched that on, went to the Messages folder and deleted this one troublesome SMS message from the 'Saved' sub folder. Replaced the SIM in my current handset, and sending messages thereafter was no problem. Hope it works for you too!
I had the same problem and I read on down and saw someone's phone was stuck in flight mode. I remembered that for some reason, my phone was in flight mode the other day, so I went in and took it off. I realized the problem had been since that time. So, I put the phone back in flight mode and was able to delete the message from my outbox. I put it back in normal mode and now I can send texts. Yes!!!!
