SOURCE: RAZR V3XX - sends my texts as MMS, rather than SMS...

I had this same problem and called Motorola for support. The solution is to clear text/mms message inbox and outbox. The default setting on my phone was to never clear the inbox but I changed that to remove messages when they are 10 days old, I have not experienced the problem since.

SOURCE: Why can't I recieve text messages from other cell phones?

I had this problem once with another cell and I found out that some of the text messages from other phones, like the LG and PDA phones send with kilobytes that are needed to be "downloaded" through a multi-media package or internet access. If you are able to send texts and they receive them, check with your carrier.
Also, try shutting the phone off and restarting.

Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: My phone sends duplicate texts

this is late, but for anyone else wanting to know, this occurs when your message reaches the companies smsc [short message service centre] it fails to send to the recipient at first, so it stores itself on the centre [or logs] and will attempt to send multiple times over the course of the next 48-72 hours depending on how they have their engineering setup. This can result in multiple sms, this is most likely not your handset, but in rare cases with certain phones, like blackberry handsets and some older symbian [vulnerable to hackers] can do this. So call your provider and get them to raise a fault through their networks, then if it fails, look into your handset.

Hello, Recently I have been texting a friend with no problems whatsoever.3 days ago at most.then slowly my messages began to cut,replies were extremely delayed,and now neither of us can recieve each...


Contact your service provider and let them know the issue. They will reset the text message configuration of your phone, when thats done make sure they send you a test message while you are on the phone (should come from like 333-333-3333) to make sure the issue is resolved.

When receiving text messages sometimes I receive a random assortment of symbols instead of text. Its a nuisance to me and those who text me. How can i resolve this issue?


You phone is not supporting the media that your friends are sending to you. Perhaps your friends are having more advanced phones and they must be sending some animated texts that wont support your phone. Unless your phone software is faulty this could be the issue and you can ask your friends to test out with plain test to confirm. IF this is not the case try resetting the phone to factory settings. Since you have not mentioned the make/model of the phone , I hope this advice helps. Good day.

Can't receive a test message


Good day, Your Message inbox is probably full, so you will have to delete some of your messages to allow space for the message to be retrieved.

Can't delete the recent messages log on the LG CU920


Go into a new text message and hit the "send to" option. Scroll down to the first name above the line and hit the "options" button. Scroll down and select "Recent messages" and choose whoever from that list that you'd like to be your top 3. I actually just sent all three of mine a blank text, but when I went back to the "send to" list voila! MORE INFO: I tried all kinds of things to remove names from my top three recipients list. What ended up working was to send a text to multiple recipients at once. Two was enough. But it was important who I selected first. I sent a message to my wife and my friend. My wife's name got added back to my top three! Then I reversed and sent a message to my friend and to my wife. His name got added back!
