SMS Pending--won't send

Hi,

 

I just got my Curve last week.  Had no problems sending SMS messages until today.  Now it keeps saying Pending and won't send.  I checked my settings and I have it set for immediate delivery.  I am able to receive texts.

 

I am super frustrated....anyone have any suggestions?

 

Thanks

Re: SMS Pending--won't send

AGH me too! I just got a BB pearl for my birthday today. I can recieve texts, but I can't reply to any of them. It's driving me insane! One guy on yahoo answers told me:

 

"You need a memory card, trust me, it's a known issue. Ask your local store...there is a setting that makes it work right when you put the card in and it will fix it."

 

I'm kind of skeptical, but who knows... Just curious if you have a memory card in your BB?

I fixed it!!!  I went to the Bell store today and they told me to do a hard reboot.  Basically, with the phone on, they took the battery out.  When is restarted it worked like a charm.

 

Now if I can just figure out a few more quirks then I may actually begin to like this phone!!!

Re: SMS Pending--won't send

I had the exact same problem as this with my new BB Storm. From new, everything was working fine, except the ability to SEND SMS texts. I was searching through the menus for about three days. Vodafone and Blackberry support wasn't worth a toss.

 

In the end, tucked away in the middle of the SMS menu in the options page, I suddenly noticed the Service Centre listing - which tucked in between two other options both with drop down menus. When you eventually manage to highlight it (which is tricky as it's so small), it brings up a blinking cursor and wants the service centre number. It was missing!!!

 

Chucking it in, cured the problem immediately. What a pain in the ass.

Re: SMS Pending--won't send

if you have a verizon phone there is something else you can do other than a hard battery pull. The kind lady at Verizon taught me how to do a soft reset. First you type ##000000 then hit send. A crazy looking list will appear called the CDMA Service Edit Screen. Scroll down to where it says "A-Key:". The SIP Password is "vzw" make sure it's lowercase. When you have the password typed in, press the Blackberry Menu key and select save. SUCCESS! Your phone has been reset without doing a harsh battery pull.

Great tip thanks, resolved the problem perfectly on my Verizon Tour (9630).  Just expect a longggg reboot cycle... stayed on the clock for a good 5 minutes!
