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.

Sms messages are changing to mms


In some devices the message type gets converted from SMS text message to MMS multimedia message if the message length exceeds the device-specific setting which is typically 5 - 10 SMS submessages (around 760-1520 characters). If the message is longer, it is converted to MMS to avoid potential issues in handling long text messages in the recipient device. The cost of a SMS message consisting of several concatenated submessages may also be higher than the cost of a single MMS message.
The conversion from SMS text message to MMS multimedia message occurs when the automatic message type is selected in the message options. This is the default mode where the device tries to automatically select the best mode for the message.
The conversion from SMS to MMS can be avoided by selecting Options > Sending options > Message type > Text when in the Text message window writing the message. The message is then always sent as SMS text message and no conversion to MMS occurs.
The maximum number of concatenated SMS submessages can be up to 10 (around 1520 characters). In multimedia mode the message length can be longer.

My iPhone 4 sends an receives iMessages no problem but normal text messages to none iPhone users are different It says my text gets sent but never gets received I have tested this. My phone is fully u


The user NOT receiving the message needs to go to settings for Messaging and turn iMessage off then on again. It has to show 'Receive messages at' settings with either phone number or email address. The phone will sometimes fail to automatically do so.

I have a flashing mail icon where it shows you have a text what does it mean and how can i fix it


Usually this means the text Inbox/Outbox is full, once you delete them it should go away. You can have 500 text messages total on your reserved memory. Once you reach 500 you get the flashing mail icon and it saves texts to the smartchip (which holds 30 extra texts) and you won't be able to send a normal sms message, it will make you send a mms slide. Delete your messages, and that should fix it. Hope this helps, if you have anymore questions feel free to ask :)

Unable to send text messages


Generally if the phone is giving a "cannot send" or "message failed" error message then there is something wrong with the "switch" In order to fix this you need to contact your providers tech support and they should be able to fix the issue...

You can also try sending the picture to your own number... sometimes that will help push it through the switch...

Also make sure that you are using the area code of the numbers that you are sending it to...

Alltel for example, will not let the message go through if the area code is not inserted

LG???


Messages > Settings > Text Message > "Send long text as"

If your text is longer than 2 pages, it'll try and send as MMS automatically if you haven't changed it when you had the phone. So if your phone isn't set up for MMS it'll refuse! lol.

Email


You can set it to send automatically, however it won't send the email immediately if you do. It can be set to send/receive every 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or a few other longer options.

To get to this option, open up your messaging, tap Menu (bottom right) and under Tools choose Options...

A window will open up, which shows all of the messaging accounts (text message, Outlook, and any additional email addresses you have). Choose an email account you want to change. On the last page (should be 4 pages of options so just keep clicking Next in the bottom right) there is an Options button.

Click Options and you should see, in bold text, "Connect automatically and check for messages" with a drop down menu. The option, right now, is probably set to Never, so change it to whichever option suits you best.

Keep in mind that if you want an email sent immediately then you'll still have to click Send/Receive, but otherwise it will automatically Send/Receive at the specified time.
