    FWIW, last night I sent a text (D2, Handcent) to my daughter (iPhone, VZW) who was on the phone at the time with my BH. Daughter commented that she received the text, but my phone indicated the text did not go out. Had the busy circle in front of the text for a minute or so, then a failure notice and a red X next to the text, and was able to delete that text. Sometimes a "failed to send" notice is false.

    Smile Thanks

    Handcent worked for me. Maybe we should send this to Verizons so than stop that factory reset that does not work!!

    From user "magjis" at Droid X Forum
    I experienced the exact same problem on my Droid X. I clicked yes to send a return receipt on a text message containing an image. The real problem appears to be that the default "Text Messaging" app does not show you a failed message queue, but will continually try to resend them. The good news is that Handcent shows you this queue and allows you to delete these messages. You do not need to continue to use Handcent, just use it to delete undelivered messages (I like the appearance and feel of the default app). Make sure to turn off Handcent's notifications if you plan to keep it installed as a deletion utility.

    Solution:
    1. Install Handcent SMS from Android Marketplace
    2. Launch Handcent SMS
    3. Press Menu Button >> More + >> Undelivered messages
    4. Here you can delete undelivered conversations and end your "messages not sent" woes!

    "text message not sent" Please Help

    About 5 months ago I had this same problem of a "text message not sent" notification. But when I select it, it read "message not available." I came onto this site and found a solution, downloading Handcent SMS and following steps to get rid of it. Which I did and it worked. Since then I got rid of Handcent, for no reason. And had no problems, but today... bam! There that lovely notification was again. I've downloaded Handcent again ... but forgot the steps!

    Does anyone know what I'm talking about, and how to get rid of it? I've been searching the forums. but have seen nothing.

    I Deleted My Threads Already

    Hello all. I have been having this exact problem with my Droid 2 Global. I too started experiencing this issue after sending a return receipt as you did. Hoping to cure the problem I deleted all my threads. Then took the battery out, and put it pack in, then restarted my phone. When this didn't help I turned here.

    I installed Handset and opened the "Undelivered" sub-menu and there were no messages listed. This didn't surprise me really... as I had already deleted all of my threads before trying this remedy.

    So... does anyone know another trick that might work to get rid of this Notification? It is annoying... but it doesn't interfere with message sending in any way it seems, so I could live with it... but I don't want too lol.

    Thanks all.

    In the end it turns out that I'm just a wee bit daft lol. Turns out that the bad message was there but it had no title... just a little red "x". But it did close it out when I clicked on it and fixed the problem. And in fact I use the Handcent app now. Lots is features I just love!

    "Text message not sent"

    I just got a Droid2global.
    In general I like it, but everytime I go to the text message app, send or receive a text, I get a notice in the top left corner of the screen saying "Text message not sent". When I "tap to view message" I go to the text message screen with a box at the bottom saying "Message not available"
    This occurs all the time and my texts are getting sent successfully.
    Any ideas?
