Question about Samsung A740 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Can't get texts from verizon

My phone is bipolar. Some days I can get texts from verizon customers and other days I can't. I can send texts to ANYONE, it's just receiving them that is a problem sometimes. I won't get any for a couple days and then one day I will get 30 texts all in a row that were sent by verizon customers. Then for a few more days my phone will be fine, and it'll happen all over again. What can I do to fix it? The at&t helpline said my phone looked fine, and it could be that I just don't turn my phone off. But none of my friends turn their phones off...

You shouldnt need to turn your phone off. If this has been happening for a while and is not related to a regional network issue, then your phone most likely has a problem. I would swap it out for a newer phone, or the same model.

I have one contact that does not receive words in the text messages I send. What would cause this when all others are receiving the words in the text?


AT&T?

When I was an AT&T customer I could receive texts and multi-media messages from virtually anyone EXCEPT those sent from an iPhone via Verizon - could very likely be a carrier issue and not you phone at all.

Verizon text messaging?


have you tried removing the battery and replacing it to let the phone completely reboot.
Is it possible that your phones memory is full and it's just not running as freely as it used to.
If so clean out messeges and see if it helps.

Voyager LG/Verizon Text Sent File Question!


I get a green arrow when I send to people.
The green arrows turns into a checkmark, when the message is delivered.

With Verizon people this is usually within a minute or so, of course unless my friend has his phone powered off - which he will do, then I don't get a checkmark until his cell gets the message.

With Non-Verizon people I don't get a green checkmark until a day later, must take longer to confirm they got it from another cell company.

The RED X is normally what I get when I try to send to a landline or an invalid phone number, or if I try to send a message - while my phone was getting an incoming message..or to someone who has text blocked. The RED X means it did not go through at all. I will re-send these if I know it's a cell phone that can get text. Then I usually make it to green arrow/then green checkmark.
