    Anyone else's text messages ever fail?

    I want to start of by saying this has nothing to do with Chevys rom, it;s just the rom I'm currently running but it's happened on Cyanogen and Bugless Beast as well. Once a day (sometimes more) when I try to send a text message, it will fail. The only way around it is to enter airplane mode and exit it or restart the phone. It's really annoying. Does anyone else have this problem? It happens regardless of where I am and at home I usually have 3-4 bars so that's not the case.

    Yes has happened to me many times. I think it's a VW issue or bug on the phone. Mine has done it non rooted and rooted.

    It is a reception issue.

    I found out back in the day of the nokia 6265i days that when you place a call
    you can send or recieve a text easier as if it if was a transportation shuttle for
    the text message.

    Try it, call your voicemail, while in the live call, press home, go into your texting
    program (stock, handcent etc.) send a text.
    You will see how fast it sends.

    This does not work for picture messages as it uses the data connection.

    I've known that. And I've always noticed how text messages fail when you're receiving another text messages or phone call. I've also noticed how they send really fast while in a call.

    The failing issue is very frustrating, it happens all the time and I don't recall it ever happening on my dumb phone the LG Dare. Hopefully Verizon will clear this up.

    I've had a few fail very seldomly, but to fix it I just hit that exclamation point or whatever pops up where the timestamp usually is. I hit that and it brings the text back and I can just hit send again and it works. A little bit ago I was missing texts, over a couple days, people would send them to me, but they would never arrive. Pretty sure that had something to do with the network tho.

    That happens to me sometimes too, but they usually don't go through even after that, I'm using Handcent but I've had the same troubles with the Messaging app and my old Droid.

    It has nothing to do with the phone.for whatever reason the system thinks your phone is off.
    I've had the system forget I have national access, forget that my number was active, etc.
    When this has happened to me numerous times in my 17 years with Verizon or their previous name a call to 611 and they do something on their end clears it up

    Its a reception issue I believe, reconnecting to the network is just refreshing your connection
