Can't *receive* text messages...
Wednesday 20th of June 2012
Here's one for y'all. Searched and nobody is reporting this issue yet so here goes.Can't receive text messages.I got the Error 64 last night for sending - when I got to work today I updated PRL and Profile and I don't have any issues sending text messages.FB Chat works, so I've managed to keep in touch with people that way...hence how I know they're getting my text messages I send.However, they send replies which I don't receive.I am using Handcent SMS. I just went through a thread for a different phone and found the tip to check off Auto-Retrieve, so I've now done that.Service at my house is basically zero, so hopefully that will fix the problem when I'm back in a service region tomorrow, but in the mean time: what can I do to best assure that I'll receive people's text messages? Guesses as to what the issue is?
Can't send picture messages on Froyo?
Sunday 03rd of October 2010
Three separate occasions now I've tried to send a picture message only to have it sit TRYING to send the message but never actually sending it. I've tried with different picture sizes, different applications (including the stock app, Chomp, and Handcent), rebooting/battery pulling, but nothing has fixed it. Is anyone else having this issue? I'm rooted and on Froyo 2.3.15 via the RubiX 0.3 Focused ROM (which is very fast and stable). My messages are set to auto-retrieve. Any ideas out there?
Android Forums - View Single Post - Stock Messages App, Sleeping, ATK, and Handcent
Friday 21st of May 2010
Hey everyone! So I know I'm new to posting but since I got my Droid two months ago I have been here a lot getting all of the answers to my questions. You all have been so thorough and so helpful that I have not needed to post because I can usually find my answers here. I apologize that this is long winded...Since Day 2 when I noticed my Awake Time at 100% and my miserable battery life, I read up on the Stock Messages App not allowing the phone to sleep. So I got myself Handcent, disabled notifications and auto-retrieve on the Stock app, and got Advanced Task Killer (ATK) to help manage my apps. I noticed sometimes when I ran 1.5 that when I received a message, my Handcent would light up, I'd get no interference from Messages, and yet, in ATK (and ATM, I tested there too), the stock messages app began running. Since switching to 2.1 and dealing with all that BS (thanks to you guys I've cleared up most of my problems), I have noticed that EVERY TIME I receive a text, Messages will be running. I have gotten into the habit of every time after I read a text, hitting the ATK widget to kill
Text messages deleted!!
Monday 17th of January 2011
Help! My max settings are set at 1.2M max msg size. 200 msg per conversation. 20 msg per conversation for multimedia. Delete old messages is unchecked. Auto retrieve is checked. How did I lose all my text messages? I always get prompted before any messages are deleted. How can I get these back??
Having problems receiving group messages
Monday 07th of October 2013
When I receive group messages, they are coming in as individual download boxes that are 1KB in size and fail to download. I then have no idea what the message says. It is driving me crazy. I do have group messaging checked in the settings. Having auto retrieve checked or unchecked didn't make a difference because it happened both ways. I am at my wits end. I hope somebody can help me. I called AT&T and they had no answers.
Need help with S4 SMS not auto retrieving
Sunday 08th of December 2013
I recently bought a S4 and i have encountered a weird problem. I had a Samsung smartphone before and this has never happened. My phone will not receive texts from certain people unless I manually check the SMS app or until i send a message. For example, my friend will send me a message lets say at around 2 but i wont receive it until 6 unless i check my sms app. I wont get notifications for certain texts. It is very strange because in the settings of the app, the Auto Retrieve Messages box is checked but it doesnt work. I have tried searching for this issue but i could not find anything except for issues with iphones to s4 but this doesnt seem to be the case for me because my brother has an iphone 5s and his texts are automatically retrieved by my phone. Im on tmobile btwThis is my first post here so any help would be appreciated.
MMS messages not being received in Hangouts
Wednesday 19th of February 2014
I'm an Android newbie, just picked up a Nexus 5 last weekend. So far I love it! Except now I'm having an issue. My fiancee has an iphone and has been trying to send me MMS, and they're not coming through to the Hangouts app. I have auto-retrieve set to ON (even checked auto retrieve on roaming just to make sure). I'm on LTE in NYC (AT&T). I've rebooted the phone, tried deleting the message thread and starting a new one, airplane mode, etc...APN seems fine. The strange part is this was working just the other day. Now, I'm totally new to Android (coming from an iPhone) so is it possible I changed some setting without knowing what I was doing? Possibly. Do I recall what I did? Nope. Even stranger: Textra shows the image fine. Hangouts does not. Help please? Thanks!

Set default sms app in Android 4.4 - still getting double messages
Sunday 14th of September 2014
Hi!I have a ZTE Nubia Z5s mini phone with latest official ROM, it's 4.4.2 based.Also I have a problem)I have installed 8sms messaging app; upon opening it warned me that current sms app is Nubia Contacts and offered to change it. So I did - changed default sms app to 8sms.But I nevertheless I was receiving double messages and double notifications.So I went to Nubia Contacts, sms settings. Turned off sms notification and mms auto-retrieve.No double notifications, but *still double messages*, darn.Disabled stock app alltogether - no double messages, I'm happy.But after a few days I have noticed that I can't create new contacts. Weird... After poking for a few days I realised that basic contacts service was provided by Nubia Contacts too.So I have to reenable it - contacts working, but I have double messages again.I tried to set Nubia Contacts as default sms app - with thought that I'll still be using 8sms app as a frontend - but when 8sms isn't selected as default it doesn't allow me to write any messages and even doesn't mark received ones as viewed. And shows a huge warning Is there
