Topic # 108449 29-Aug-2012 14:42 Send private message

I wondered if anyone has experience or could help with a problem i have. I first noticed a few days ago that i was no longer getting a notification sound or vibration with incoming text although they were showing up. I then noticed that none of my outgoing texts were working although it appears that it has in the thread box ie no "can't send, please try again message" I have cheked all settings and haven't changed a thing. Any ideas?

Have you tried turning it off, then turning it back on again?

It takes years of helpdesk experience to get that good at fixing problems ;-)

I had this problem a few times before discovering that it was because I was trying to send to a contact's home land line or some other invalid number/account.

When you get this error, press the "switch" button (bottom right) when the thread is displayed and reselect the number/account that is intended.
