    Slow Text mesaging

    Advertisement



    Does anyone know what would cause slow texting suddenly? It seems my curve just hangs when you hit send. The messages eventually go through but not like they used to. i havent added or changed anything recently either.

    Not positive, but try this:

    Go to Options > SMS Text > and for network try GPRS Preffered.

    Do a test TEXT and see if it works

    Now it hangs for a bit and then goes back to the message log and has a little clock next to the message and then finally sends. i Dont understand what would suddenly cause this because it was lightning fast.

    Well approx. how long is the little clock there? You can try a battery pull to see if you phone will re-register or atleast connect to a different tower again.

    How many messages do you have numbered to thread in each text? I used to have mine set at 50 and then after a few weeks my texting slowed to a crawl. I changed the thread count to 5 and then all went back to being speedy again.
    The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, some1 said 2 thmslvs "U knw, I really want 2 set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close engh to get the job done".

    Yeah, same here. I couldn't even type with it. It's a shame, would be nice to have normal texting with such a long msg thread.

    Are you experiencing this issue while on UMA (if you have the 8320) or EDGE?

    Because lately, I've been having the same issue with UMA, not with EDGE though.

    Ok I see, could it be a network problem in your area? Call your provider to see what's going on.. if you do all the stuff posted above and none of them work, then it could be a network problem. Goodluck

    I've noticed this issue, but only periodically. Usually just do log clear and reset to resolve.

    Go to the options icon, then SMS Text, and then Number of Previous Items. If its a high number go ahead and lower it to maybe 5 and see if that helps. If not then its a different problem cause it did the trick for me when I was having issues
