This is a KNOWN problem with this phone.
Read all of this answer before deciding what you want to do. You'll have several options:
To correct the problem yourself you'll need to have another (older) phone (not a 7205 Intrigue) that your phone number can temporarly be transferred to. Then, follow these steps:
1. Assign your phone # to a different device using its EIN.
2. Startup the other phone and make sure all text messages & other undelivered stuff is picked up by the other phone.
3. Turn the other phone off, reassign your # to the 7205 Intrigue, and start it up. Problem solved!
Some key points:
- you can do this yourself on Verizon online--if you have another operable device to switch to; otherwise, you can go into a Verizon store and have them switch to a test phone for you. Obviously, the other phone cannot be a 7205 Intrigue.
- after switching your # to this new device, you MUST wait SEVERAL MINUTES and confirm that all the msgs floating around in the system while your Intrigue has been malfunctioning are delivered to the new phone.
If you switch back and forth too quickly the problem will NOT be solved.
Nokia is aware of this problem and sent a bulletin on 7/30 stating that the bug will be addressed in the next software release for this phone (no target date specified.
Intrigue owners will not receive any notification when this software release is available, and that the phone will have to be brough to Verizon to have them load the update.
Unless you're attached to the Intrigue, exchange your phone for a different model and avoid this headache! (That is, of course, if you kept the original packaging which Verizon requires for exchanges of even faulty, nonfunctional equipment.
Call verizon, and see if the software update has been released. a. If so, go have it installed on your phone.
b. If not, do the EIN switch. If the problem happens again, go back to step II.
