Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3x Cellular Phone

Texting problems My V3xx is not letting me send regular text messages at all. It automatically sends multimedia messages. These messages are usually recieved 5 minutes to an hour after I send them. I have been to multiple stores trying to get it fixed and no one can do anything

Re: Texting problems

My v3x does it when i exceed 320 characters. i suggest that check out the number of characters you've been used to avoid converting your regular sms to mms.

Re: Texting problems

There are very few posts like this online, but I have been experiencing the same problem for quite some time now. Most of the time, I can make it go away by clearing out some saved messages (though one time it took a replacement SIM chip). At first, i thought it was because I have multimedia in my inbox, or outbox, but that isn't it. The problem seemed to start happening more and more frequently after cleaning up my outbox while allowing the inbox to grow when it occurred to me that it could be related to the total number of messages stored on the phone, or perhaps total size. For me, it happens at around 450-460 messages total. I've only now started writing down the numbers. I'm theorizing that it doesn't happen to everyone because the storage warning on the phone might be hardcoded to # of messages, and most people probably send/receive short messages. Mine are usually a page or two on average... What about you all? Does it clear up when clearing out messages? Does it appear to occur at near-max storage? I'm sure it is a hardware problem, but just in case, what service do you use? I use Cingular.

Hey i had the same problem and found out how to fix it. If it sais "Invalid Multimedia settings. Check settings" then you have to follow these steps:
1. Go to message settings under messages at the main menu
2. Click Text messages
3. Go to Message center in use and select SMS settings

This is how i fixed my problem which was the same as alyluvsskitt's

Text messaging issue

Problem is a known issue with V3xx. If Inbox/outbox combined are above 300 messages, text messages are sent as picture messages. Use the auto-cleanup if you'd like, or manually delete texts, but I've had this issue with my V3xx since I first got it, and was told this same answer by AT&T tech support.

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.
