My t-mobile dash smartphone is not letting me check my incoming texts. it freezes whenever i get a text, and when i restart it and check the inbox the text disappears. i've checked online and i'm being charged for these texts still. is there any way for me to recall these "lost" texts?

You can not recover lost texts. once gone, they are gone.
Try to get credit from your provider.
To correct issue do a hard reset:


The T-Mobile Dash™ includes a button sequence which can be utilized to perform a hard reset. This method is much more difficult to do but it will perform the reset if the menu options are not available.

Note: Before attempting this procedure make sure to backup your data using ActiveSync. All unsaved data will be lost.

Hard Reset
1. Power the device off by pressing and holding the Power key.

Note: If device is unresponsive remove the battery.

2. With the phone off press and hold both soft keys (The two keys directly under the screen, used to open menus.)
3. While continuing to hold the soft keys, press and hold the Power button for 1-2 seconds.
4. Continue holding the soft keys until you see a message that starts with This operation will delete….
5. Release the soft keys.

Note: If you see the standard boot up screen load steps 2 and 3 were not performed correctly.

6. A boot splash screen will appear, followed by a black screen prompting: Press Send to restore factory defaults, Other keys to quit
7. Press the Send key.
8. When prompted to powercycle device, select Ok

Note: Once the hard reset is performed it could take up to a few minutes to completely boot back up.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I don't receive incoming texts, until i send a mesage to anyone.


It sounds like your phone is only checking for new messages whenever it connects to the tower to send an outgoing SMS(text message). I would recommend taking it into the store and having them look at the connection settings as something may have gotten incorrectly set if the phone is new. If the problem is just now occurring undo any major changes or application installs to see if something was interfering with the connection.

Can get text but can't send any text out.


hi thanks for using fixy!!

May I ask the model of your phone? Is there any kind of insident why this kind of error happened?

I suggest that you check with your Network Service Provider the details of the message center number, perhaps this is the cause why you cannot send any text messages.

If you need further assistance, let me know.

pls rate me positively! thanks!

T-Mobile Wing Freezes & Restarts while texting


you can try to restart the phone. The only problem with that is that everything you have saved on ur phone gets deleted unless its on a memory card. What you have to do is turn off your phone then wait a couple of seconds then hold the power button along with the to line buttons by the green phone and the end call button. After you hold them down you wiil see a screen that will have some writing when that shows up you press the green phone button. After that it will restart but its going to take a while for it to restart. then when its done deleting everything its going to ask you to tap the screen the its going to ask you to do the align screen. you can skip the rest after you skip it the pocket pc page will come up and it will show you its installing everything when its done it will turn off and start up again. and there you go like new. if that doesnt help the you should go get it checked out..

I am not sure on this one, but I think its because all your contact info is on the sim and not on the phone.

Text messages cannot be sent


Have you tried to reboot your phone? That usually helps because you probably don't have very good reception and restarting it will help detect better reception.
