Re: S8 text messages not sending

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Been struggling with this issue from time to time for a month now. Sometimes my text messages get sent twice if it is not getting stuck on "Sending". I notice this happen more often on group messaging than 1:1.  I am trying Textra for now and see how it goes. I just hope its an issue with Samsung's native messaging app and not with the phone OS (or worse hardware).

S8 text messages not sending

JUMP TO SOLUTION
Go into the settings in Messages, and look for "Message center". Make sure the number there matches your provider. For example, ATT is: +13123149810

After trying everything I could think of (uninstalling apps, factory resets, etc.), I finally discovered that my issue was caused by the phones Bluetooth. When it's on, the phone's OS and various apps, including the native text messaging app ceases to function properly. When I turn it off, all text messages send immediately, and the OS starts operating normal again (apps download and update correctly, notifications arrive on-time, etc.). I didn't even suspect the problem being the Bluetooth because it's such an fundamental function, but on my phone, I was able to whittle it down to the Bluetooth being the culprit. It's been very frustrating. I've been trying to solve this problem for about 6 months now. I finally figured it out. 

Btw, I have a Samsung Galaxy S8 with AT&T, purchased from Best Buy.

Having problem for days.  Tried many prior suggestions like restarting, clearing cache, cyclin airplane mode, etc.  Nothing worked.  Turned off bluetooth, powered off the phone, powered back on, problem solved.  Will leave bluetooth off for a few days and post if problem comes back.  Very frustrating.  Just bought bluetooth headset. 

 

Samsung, since this is happening across multiple carriers, the ball should be in your court.  Not acceptableto buy flagship phone and not be able to use bluetooth.  Please respond and resolve.  Thank you.

While running Android 7.1, the only way I could fix it was to turn off Blue Tooth, and leave it off.  After my phone was upgraded to Android 8.0, the problem went away.

I had the same problem...my daughter told me how to fix it.  Type the text message and send it.  Then hold your finger on the text you are trying to send until a bubble pops up.  Click the "send as text message".  You may have to do this a few times with each number until the phone recognizes it and it works automatically.
