SMS messages are sent using SMTP. It is the lowest priority for message delivery. What you are experiencing is common with SMTP messages when traffic is high on cell networks. The only fix is to not use SMTP during high traffic and usage times.
Certain mobilephone upgrades affect the ability of TracFone customers to send text messages internationally. Some of the phones identified to have had this SMS issue are the LG290C, LG420G and Samsung T301G. The problem is present when an error message appears on your TracFone device after you send a text message to an international number that says, "Check SMS Restrictions."

Did you upgrade from the 420G to 440G? Certain mobile phone upgrades affect the ability of TracFone customers to send text messages internationally.

Or your phone isn't capable of texting internationally.If it's supposed to then you need to call Tracfone customer service and tell them.
I had a similar issue. I powered off phone and removed battery for 1 minute. Restarted phone and made sure both wireless and cellular were connected. Go back to "about device" and check for update. Make sure your phone stays connected to wireless or cellular service while it updates. My phone is not an LG but this worked for me, I hope this helps.
Although I don't believe my user dictionary was flushed, my phone also keeps notifying me, "message not sent" when i didn't send a message. When I press the notification, im taken to a blank text message. No name or number in the To: slot and no message in the message section. Its driving me nuts(Not to say I wasn't already there to begin with) Any suggestions would be great.
Whenever a sender sends you text messages, the notification just pops up automatically. You dont have to press anything to receive a text message. You just have to press the key where the "Read" message indicates.
This is almost certainly a problem with your phone not having the correct Message Centre settings (have you ever used this phone with a different carrier?).
The Message Centre number can be found in Messaging/Settings/Text Message/Text Message Centre. You will probably need to check with your Service Provider to get the correct number, although you may find it on their website.
try rebooting your phone 2 to 3 times daily and deleting text and phone calls regularly. this may help your situation. rebooting is taking off battery waiting at least 15 seconds reinstalling battery and powering on... best bet is to delete items then reboot... your problem should go away. unless of course your messages are too large to be sent than that's a totally different issue
