I can receive texts but now all my outgoing texts go into Pending mode waiting on service. I use Pageplus(Verizon NW) and they had me put the phone in Airplane mode for 10 seconds and then back off. And sure enough.....it worked for about 30 seconds. I could send texts. But stopped again. This just started this week as far as I know. I have read that others have experienced this problem due to a firmware update in January 2019.
Anyone here having this problem? Any fix or is texting a thing of the past with this phone?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Another day and another day of texting problems. Woke up this morning and sent a test text and get a pending message. Dialed a 1-800 number and sure enough.....that frees up texting.
That does it for me as I can't trust this thing any longer. Who knows what other problems will soon follow. And when Samsung points fingers at the carrier and the carrier points fingers at Samsung.......well that is not a good thing. It basically means there is no permanent solution. I'm going with a new carrier and a different cell phone brand.
Are you using the stock messaging app on your device?
I would recommend reaching out directly to your carrier for further assistance.
Have you tried sending a text message while the device is in safe mode?
Have you already tried a factory reset on the device?
