    I've had this phone for 6 or so months, and although most of its flaws are manageable most the time... One really bugs the crap out of me:

    My house is a dead zone for most cell phone companies (Sprint being the exception), I get spotty reception anywhere on my street.. And I have to drive 10 blocks just to make a phone call that won't cut out on me.


    My problem is: If I try to Text using my Droid, and it's in the wrong position or wrong place, It will sit there and try to send the message for a LONG time, I know it's going to fail, even if I move it to a spot with Full bars, It still fails... But it takes up to 30 minutes for it to finally acknowledge that it failed.

    Is there any way I can cancel the message or set how long it waits before giving up on sending something? It's incredibly frustrating when I have to sit there forever waiting for a text to fail so I can re-send it.

    :welcome: to the forum! I have a friend that has the same problem. I agree with titans (although the patriots rule over the titans) and it's a verizon problem. maybe you should go back to sprint. :(

    While the text not sending has to do with Verizon. Having to wait 30 min for a text to fail isn't Verizon's problem. I don't know what the answer is but I know there has to be a solution to that. If I'm not mistaken Handscent doesn't take that long if my message fails to send.
