On a galaxy 5, the text reply gets sent, not to the person who sent the first text, but the immediate PREVIOUS address in the text history queue. Help....


When you reply press the Forward straight ARROW only and add the persons name you wish to reply to in the multi text . This means they will get the whole message and none of the rest. If you press the double semi circular arrows this replies to all in the email.

What does it mean when t says message pending on a sent text on my android phone


Depending on your coverage, cell provider, and network it is being sent to, it might take a little while for the message to go through.
You can try a reboot.

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 recieve a text message the name does not appear on the screen of who sent me the text it just has text message. it never did this before and was wondering if it was just a setting change?


Hi,

It does not seem to be a setting change.

Please ensure that you still have the person's name in your phone book.

There are times when a multiple entry will cause the name to not to be displayed.

Just check once and look at the first and the last entry of your phonebook.
The repeat number often gets saved in the end of the phonebook and has no name.
Since there are 2 numbers, one with name and one without... it causes a conflict.

In case you see repeated entries, delete one. Then please test.


If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.
Thank you.

Is there any way to make the persons name appear for a text


It should be as simple as adding their name and number to the address book on the phone.

Make sure to list the number under the Mobile Phone line.

While in the address book, there is usually a line that says "New Entry" or "Add number" etc...(without the type of phone I cant get specific).

Another method is to into the text message itself and do an options click (again without the phone cant be specific) and there should be an option to add the number to the address book.

Can't receive/make calls and text on i68/i9


First remark: This phone is not 3G compatible !!! the name is i9+ 3G but it's only the name !!! Second: Go to settings , Dual SIM settings , and check that you're not in 'flight mode' (that's when the 2 X appear top left) and change it to either one of the 3 other options (Dual sim open, only sim1 open, only sim2 open). Third: The name will appear when the person is in your address book.

When i receive messages on my i9 the number appears not name


I have the phone and have had the same problem. I found I have to add the "1" before the area code to all the saved contacts or at least the ones you use most and that should fix it... when the text message is received it has the "1" normally we don't save the number that way...
