    SMS Text problem


    When I try to send a text on my 8830 I usually get the dreaded "red X". I need to hit resend 4 or more times before the text goes through. Any ideas?

    Does it always take 4 or more times? do you have good signal strength? does this also happen with MMS messages?

    Have you tested your SIM card in another mobile? Also, check the security options on your BlackBerry and ensure the firewall is not blocking SMS. If it is an issue with your carriers network (or your SIM card), testing it in another phone will quickly isolate the problem. If it fails in another handset, it could be the network/SIM. If it works in another phone, you can bet its your BlackBerry. It may just be a setting, or it may be experiencing a fault.

    I hope this helps you in some way, and I hope you get your issue fixed.
