So as you can see I did the OTA lollipop 5.0.1 update. NOW, I can send sms text messages. I can receive them, but not send them. I have no problems sending or recieving MMS messages though.. Any updates, fixes, or advice???
OH, and I saw that VZW was going to offer wifi calling this year. Anybody got any updates on that yet?
Thanks in advance for your help and input..
I am using the standard default messaging that came with the phone. When this phone was before lollipop (kit kat) I had no problems. When I go to messaging settings, lollipop lets me select ONLY the default, or the "hangouts". If I remember correctly as well, kit kat let me select several more messaging options. OH... I forgot... I can send SMS only when the phone drops off from 4G to 3G (or lower). Which wouldn't be so bad if I could lock it in at 3G, then all would work.
The sms text message fails when sent to any phone numbers when on 4G. I did clear the cache, and it did not change anything at all.
@nazz..... Just curious nazz, are you running Verizon service on your Verizon phone, OR another carrier? The reason I ask, is because I have heared many cases where people with the Verizon phone, are running other carriers through them with the same problem. I am just trying to see if this affecting both verizon customers, and non verizon customers with this "Verizon" phone or not?
