    As I said before the phone asks "Do you want to send 3 messages" with a large "?" on the right. How do you say no when the book doesn't have this in it. The menu doesn't give you an option so where do you respond to the question and change it?

I am not sure about the cause of your problem and how to fix it, but if I were you, I would just restore the phone settings to it's factory default using the code 00000000 (8 zeros: If you haven't changed yet). To do this, go to settings, press the up-key once and "Ok"/"Select" and proceed forward with positive inputs and enter the 8 zeros when asked. Honestly I haven't heard about this problem, and so I am guessing another program has been installed on your phone or something like that.. It's strange that the messages are being sent to three contacts. Would you mind telling if the send to contacts are to different/random contacts or to particular two excluding the one you are sending?

I wish you good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi there,

Well first of all I like to say that this is not a phone problem, usually these type of problems are because of the Network (service you are using like AT&T etc.). 
You may call the costumer care of your service provider and ask them for the problem. 
If you want to check the problem is because of phone or service provider then you use some other phone and try sending a message. Post further comments for further help or information.......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

    Don't think that is right as the phone shows a message " Do I want to send 3 messages?" and you cannot answer the question unless you know what to push on the phone. It is not in the book!! All you can do is push send!

My android Samsung phone will not send sms to one contact but it will send mms what's wrong


It means that the person you are sending to either has an older phone that will not accept multimedia messages or that there contract plan does not include MMS. If it is the other way around, you need to contact your cellphone provider, unless your texts are over 140 characters..

Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) is a standard way to send messages that include multimedia content to and from mobile phones over a cellular network. Users and providers may refer to such a message as a PXT, a picture message, or a multimedia message.[1] The MMS standard extends the core SMS (Short Message Service) capability, allowing the exchange of text messages greater than 160 characters in length. Unlike text-only SMS, MMS can deliver a variety of media, including up to forty seconds of video, one image, a slideshow of multiple images, or audio.
The most common use involves sending photographs from camera-equipped handsets.[citation needed] Media companies have utilized MMS on a commercial basis as a method of delivering news and entertainment content, and retailers have deployed it as a tool for delivering scannable coupon codes, product images, videos, and other information.
The 3GPP and WAP groups fostered the development of the MMS standard, which is now continued by the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA).

Accidentally sending multiple copies of text


I was having this very same problem with my brand new Propel. It seems that the longer the message is, the phone will split it into multiple messages, because it starts at 1 and as I continue typing it increments the number of messages to be sent. If I delete some characters, then the number of messages goes down. I seems like it allows about 160 characters per message.

What I'm still confused about it why it is driving your friends crazy. Are they getting the full message multiple times? I would think they would get multiple messages with a portion of your message in each. Are they getting the messages out of order?

How do you change the text message settings to TAP instead of Abc


How to set up Text Entry Mode?
1. From any text entry screen (ie. when you are writing a text message), press the top center button, the one above the directional wheel.
2. Press on "Entry SetUp"
3. Select the "Primary Set Up" or "Secondary Setup" by choosing your preferred input mode among the ones below. Us the wheel by pressing on the right arrow to change mode:
  • ITAP: it's a built-in software which predicts the word you are typing.
  • TAP: enter individual letters and numbers by pressing the keys multiple times. Ie. for the letter "F" press the number 3 button three times.
  • Tap Extended: enter individual letters, numbers and symbols by pressing the keys multiple times

    Delete top 3 text message recipents


    Go into a new text message and hit the "send to" option. Scroll down to the first name above the line and hit the "options" button. Scroll down and select "Recent messages" and choose whoever from that list that you'd like to be your top 3. I actually just sent all three of mine a blank text, but when I went back to the "send to" list voila! MORE INFO: I tried all kinds of things to remove names from my top three recipients list. What ended up working was to send a text to multiple recipients at once. Two was enough. But it was important who I selected first. I sent a message to my wife and my friend. My wife's name got added back to my top three! Then I reversed and sent a message to my friend and to my wife. His name got added back!
