Question about Phones

1 Answer

Hi, I own an LG Shine through AT&T. My problem is: When I text message someone, It says that it was sent, but I'll talk to my friend's later and they never got the message I sent them. It gets me and my friends annoyed. It seems as though there's nothing to fix this problem...or is there something wrong with my phone/phone service? (I have plenty of bars on my phone and I've tried turning my phone off)

It sounds like the AT&T servers are jamming up from too much bandwidth at once. When this happens the text that got stuck blocks all the others. Ask the so called techie through your support number to delete your previous outgoing texts from your account or do a rebuild on your account if they can. That should clear up the buggered up one and open up your account to send texts again. Highly unlikely it's your phone. The only thing that it may be is your sim card lost connectivity from loss of static charge or bumps. Pull it out, lick your finger and wipe the contacts with it then use an pink eraser to clean off the contacts. This isn't a joke it actually helps regain a static charge. The physics are similar to holding one end of a fluorescent tube light and stick it to a door knob in the dark.

I get the same text messages sent to my phone over and over again. Annoying. Now, in Spain, I have received the same three messages (sms) about 100 times. Where lies the problem? What do I do? The sender...

is it spam message or message from your friend?

spam message - report it to local authority and service provider. they will ban it for you.

friend - its a network problem. ask your friend to do a setting on his/her phone. reduce the lifetime of sms from unlimited to say..1 hour or so.

I have a LG Vantage, how do I delete all texts out of my sent folder at once? Ditto with my inbox?

This is pretty simple. Go to the first menu on the left (from the home screen), tap on 'Messaging', then 'Text Message', then 'Inbox' or 'Sent' (whichever you want), tap on the little white icon with 3 white lines near the bottom right hand side of the screen. Next, scroll down to the bottom of the list that pops up. There will be an selection called '6 Delete Multiple'. Click on that. You can then choose which message(s) you would like to delete. From what you have asked, you seem to want to delete them all at once. To do this, tap the little box on the left of the the Title 'Sent' (this will highlight them all). Finally tap delete, confirm and YOU'RE DONE!
