My htc freestyle keeps changing the order of my texts. it puts all texts ive sent on top and ones received on the bottom, how do i change it?

try going to menu, settings, date & time, and make sure the information is correct where it says "set date" and "set time." if either is wrong, enter the correct information. that should fix it.
what happened is your phone thought you were sending a message earlier or later in time than you actually were, while whoever you're texting was sending messages on time. soooo all of your messages end up clustering at the top or bottom depending on if your phone's date & time is set early or late.

When I send a text it seems that its sending bit the recipient receives a blank text.

Try sending a text to your phone and see if you can receive the message that you just sent and not just a blank message. Are you using some characters or emoticons? It probably is not readable on the recipient's phone. For example, on the iPhone, one can send a message with Emoji but the other models will not be able to view it and instead just receive a blank message.

Describe your LG enV3 VX9200 Cell Phone Problem. Frequently texts say they are sent but various people are not receiving them and I cannot reply text, forward text, or send same text to multiple people....

Check in your sent folder and look at the envelope next to the message. Each envelope has a check box at the top right corner.

<>If the person you are sending the message to also has Verizon:
-If it was received by the other person, the box will be checked.
-If it has an arrow next to it, it's still in the process of being sent; possibly because the intended recipient is out of service.
-If you click on the sent message and scroll down to the bottom, it will tell you what time the other person received it at.

<>If the person doesn't have Verizon, all the messages you send (regardless of whether or not they were delivered) will have an arrow in the box and it will not tell you what time the person received the message at.

Sometimes, a message will have an I in the box. I think it stands for Incomplete; this only happens to me when I send a message to more than one person and the message doesn't get delivered for some reason.

Will not receive pictures

Check with Sprint to see if you have a data plan for MMS. Text plans are different from data plans that support MMS for sending and receiving pictures. Sounds like data is being blocked.

Sent a picture message but nobody is receving them - not sent

You have to have some sort of internet or data service to send pictures. Also, make sure you have entered 1 and the area code when sending text messages - that has caused mine not to send before. Hope that helps.

Phone wont send or recieve txts

On every phone there are settings that can stop you sending texts. However all phones should still receive texts even if all the settings were changed. As the text message is directed to you mobile number you should still be receiving?
When you compose your text and select contact does the phone move them to the out/sent box?
Settings to check for sending are your 'message centre number' (your network provider can supply and they are normally different for pay monthly and pay & go) 'Message sent as' should be 'text' (not fax or email etc).
Text problems are common where people change or delete digits from the message centre number by mistake.
If you cannot receive texts i would recommend speaking to your provider for help as it may be your account details at their end? (beyond your control). Hope that helps?
