    Sending blank text messages?

    Help! For some reason when I send text the receiver gets a blank message even though it's there in my thread. I'm using the basic Droid messaging app and sending to a Blackberry, both phones on Verizon. Is it a text encoding setting issue? Or what?
    Thanks.

    Sounds like some sort of issue.

    I suggest you switch to Handcent. It's much better than the stock messaging app, imo.

    I've never heard of that one before. No help here (sorry), but I'll bump you up to see if anyone else may know....

    I've been experiencing this with Handcent sending to a Palm Centro on Sprint. Anyone have an idea why it happens?

    Did you ever get it fixed?

    Hey, I've just started experiencing this same issue. Did you find a way to fix it?

    I'm having the same problem with a Droid2 sending to a Palm Pixie and today a Nextel BB. Blank messages. Once I restart it's good for a bit, but can't go back in and cut and paste the original text and send it... still blank.

    Blank Emails

    Emails I send are blank when the recipient gets them but they show "sent" on my end. It happens randomly and frequently and then begins sending correctly. Any suggestions?

    Follow-up

    My phone (droid x) stopped sending blank messages within a few days of my post about the problem.

    Looking back, it seems to have first started when I sent a text message while my phone was in its dock. That may or may not have contributed to the problem.

    I'm curious if anyone here has reported the problem to Verizon, i.e. called customer support? What were you told?

    I avoided calling customer support because when I called on behalf of my mom to report a locking up problem on her Samsung Fascinate, the lady, while nice, was of no substantial help. The best she could do was look through a manual while I waited on the line.

    I am having the same issue. I started using Handcent, pulled my battery out and still have the problem. It happens while sending from Verizon to Verizon and Sprint.

    I have found that using the autocomplete on the word "don't" causes my txts to be received as blank txts (droid 2). Somehow the apostrophe is different in the phone dictionary for "don't", and it screws up the message so that it can't be read by the receiving phone. Typing out the word fixes the problem. Don't know if this is related or not.
