Galaxy S3 SMS Sending Failed

My S3 has just started this problem, i try to sent a text and it fails, i click on resend and it works fine.

I've been into settings, done a force stop and reset settings and clear cache but still it persists.

I rebooted the phone as well and nothing seems to work.

I deleted the last apps i installed incase it was a conflict with them but alas the issue persists.

HELP !

Can only assume a temporary network glitch....

You didn't say that before Smiley Wink

 

But as you've tried all the usual resets, if it continues, you will have to get the phone looked at by a service centre.

 

When you rebooted did you remove the SIM card for a few mins first?

Re: Galaxy S3 SMS Sending Failed

Same thing has happened to me since the 2013 came in, sometimes it will send sometimes it wont i tried to search networks in the hope this works, so far so good.. It is rather annoying tho. im in the highlands of scotland so the network cant be bad all over the uk as it only seems to be samsung galaxy phones that have this problem??

Re: Galaxy S3 SMS Sending Failed

Im having the same text sending problems on my Galaxy Note 2.  Fails on first send then goes on the resend, tried all the usual stuff but not fixed it so far.

 

I know a few friends are having the same problem and they arent using Galaxy phones, i suspect its a glitch left from the strain on the network at the New Year.
