    I am having the same problem with my Sony Ericsson w580i...talked for over an hour with At&t and they just tell me I need to purchase a new phone. It seems they really have no clue and I think there has to be some programming on the phone that needs to be corrected. If anyone can help please respond. Thanks!!!!!

YES! go into your outbox and select the stuck message to move to drafts, then shut off your phone and turn it back on, problem should be solved. worked for me!

I just did a master reset on the phone and all is good with the phone. Now able to send text. Had to copy down all contacts because the master reset will erase them all, re-entering all contacts will be a pain but better than the option At&t was telling me I would have to purchase a new phone. I have saved myself a lot of money and am pretty annoyed that At&t did not suggest this in the first place. Hope this fix works for you as well. KT

text messages only enters outbox if there is not air time on the phone or when there is network fluctuation.

Messages go to outbox but doesn't send


You need to call your service provider. The issue probably lies in the HLR settings, which the provider can access. This is the system that looks at you account to see if you have the rights to send/receive text. If these settings are off, it will cause this issue.

Hey,
This problem may be because you do not get a contant reception where you are. Try walking around to different locations to see if your text messages send. If this doesn't fix the problem, please post.
Best of luck,

Texts go to outbox but are not sent


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!

Text is stuck in my outbox


I had this same problem. Deleting and clicking "yes" at the warning screen would not remove the message from my outbox and the message kept resending for days.

Solution: In the Outbox, click "Menu" > Empty Deleted Items. Click "yes" at the warning. The message should now be gone from your outbox and your text buddy should now be able to regain sanity.

T-mobile credited back the resent text messages when I called them.
