Question about Pantech Cell Phones
I've had this phone for almost a year and up until now it has been great. Recently the text message conversation view has gone out of whack. It groups any outgoing messages at the beginning, and all incoming at the end, effectively eliminating the "conversation view." The reason for this is all outgoing messages are time stamped correctly, but the date is one day behind. Meaning if I sent a message at 4:30 PM 12/27/2012, it would show up in my conversation as 4:30 PM 12/26/2012. But the incoming messages (those coming to my phone from other people), do not do that. They have the correct time AND date. I've looked and looked and haven't found anything that works yet. If someone know what the problem is and how to fix it I sure would appreciate the help.

Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
Here's a link to this great service

I had the same problem. If you go to your message settings and select GPRS, change it to ON then to OFF. Then turn your phone off for a few mins then back on. You should receive all of your messages and all of your sent ones will go through. I have had to do this a couple of times, but it does fix it for quite a while. It is a know problem with the V3. Hope this helps. :-)

HI Unfortunately, Memory in the phone is RAM type and it is not Hard Drive type so once it has been erased, you will not be able to retrieve it back. That is why some phone model has poped up the message to ask you whether you are confimed for a premanent delete. Memory in phone was too small so it must erase the old one in order to give out more space for incoming one so once it is erase, it will be permanently.

Same thing happened with me. Could do a hard reset but that would erase everything on my phone. Also looking for a different solution.

I have called Virgin mobile SO many times for almost 9 months now because of text messaging issues. I don't know if it's the phone or the crappy service (the texts aren't the only problem, to this day I have never been able to access the internet on either of the phones I have had with them). I never receive text messages anymore... On a rare occasion I'll get like 5 text messages back to back that are from days before, and then nothing again. I can never tell if the messages that I receive are actually being sent, but I know a few times people have called me frantically because my phone has sent them the same message sometimes up to 80 TIMES. The customer service reps never have a CLUE what they're talking about and they barely speak english. It is so obvious that they are literally quoting directly from the same **** that is posted on their terrible website. I cannot even bring myself to call them anymore because I am so sick of explaining EVERYTHING over again, only to get the same incredibly insulting line "we have opened an investigation into this issue and are working on fixing it". REALLY? FOR 9 MONTHS??? I am SO angry with Virgin mobile's overall terrible service that I have contacted an attorney and am in the process of taking legal action. I suggest everyone else do the same or get new service because this company is merely sitting back and stealing our money while doing absolutely nothing to improve their service.

This is a well-known issue with Virgin and the LG Flare. Curious as to why they are still selling it. Virgin will drag this out with you for months, telling you to reset the phone and reprogram the phone and all this stuff that is a complete waste of time. The only thing you can do is call them, let them know you are fully aware that this is a known issue, and demand they send you a different model replacement phone! I've had so many problems with texting on this phone and Virgin being no help that I am now switching to a T-Mobile Flexpay plan! It's the same thing as Virgin's service in that there is no credit check, no deposit, and you pay at the beginning of your month of service instead of the end. The difference is it enables you to use all of T-Mobile's regular plans (instead of prepaid which are never as good), and not have to deal with crappy phones and horrible customer service from Virgin! You have to call or go into a store to sign up for Flexpay, but if you search flexpay rate plans on T-Mobile's site you can read all about them! Good luck!
