Re: won't delete message in outbox

I wanted to see what "locking" a message would do today, so I gave it a shot... bad idea. I spent 30 minutes reading forums of people having the same problems. When I pressed "Options" in my messages, it would not give me the option to unlock the message the same way it gave me the option to lock it before. I started getting a little worried when the only thing I found that worked for people was to do a master reset. I'm sure this won't work for anyone else, but all I did was power off my phone and turn it back on... went to the messages and selected "Options" again. Lo and behold, there was the option to unlock the message. I hope many of you have the same luck I did!

Re: won't delete message in outbox

Try this:
When you are in your Messages/Inbox viewing messages, press _ key (above your up arrow) and it will give you choices like Reply, Delete, Clean all up, etc. I was able to delete my messages that way.

Master reset will NOT erase your images , music files, or contacts. Motorola had me do a rest for mine and it DID not clear my locked messages. Main master reset will erase all. Blue tooth all your info to anther phone and Master rest and have them blue tooth it back

I think you all should do a master reset and clear of the phone and that hopefully should clear the problem up, if that does not work then have the mobiles exchanged for new ones.

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!

Delete old messages text & voice?

When first turned on, select "messages." then down arrow to inbox or outbox. Select choice. For outbox, down arrow to SENT. Select. Hit the center button. scroll down twice to delete the one message. Scroll down once more to delete ALL messages from the sent outbox. Confirm and out they go!

Now, does anybody know how to email text messages so they can be saved?

Text messaging problem

Delete everything in your inbox and outbox. That solves the problem, I promise. Apparently this is very common with Razrs.
