I tried to send text messages yesterday, clock appears

I just bought a Blackberry Curve about 3 months ago.  Been sending and receiving text messages without problem.  However, I tried to send several text messages yesterday.  When I viewed my messages box I noticed that there were "clock" icons next to the messages I thought I sent, however when I called one of the intended recipients she informed me that she did not receive the text.  I do not know what the problem is or why these messages have not been sent.  Could somebody please give me some guidance on this issue.  I would rather not contact verizon because it takes so long to get an answer.  I really appreciate your time and thoughts on this topic.  I am not computer savvy, so basic language is the only way I will understand.  Thanks.

Confirm the below -

  1. Go to Options
  2. SMS Text
  3. Service Center: ask you carrier to know the service center no.
  4. Network to Send Over: Circuit Switched

Did you try deleting the message, re-createing and resending it?

Also, another thing you may want to do is pulling out the battery and retrying.

When you send a sms it comes outside via special facility: Short Message Service Center

 

Call your wireless carrier and check that number of Short Message Service Center (also known as SMSC, Service Center) is set correctly.

 

Below there is an animated image to show how to find this service center number
