I have the Blackberry Storm and just yesterday I was sending text messages to a friend and she did not receive them.
Troubleshooting I've tried and nothing has worked:
Tried to respond to her messages
Tried to send a brand new text
Put a 1 in front of her phone number for the area code, took the one back out
She pulled her battery out multiple times to do a hard restart; I did the same to my phone.
I updated my roaming capabilities (*228 option 2)
She tried to update her roaming but it said that they could not update her roaming and the session ended.
She has Alltel but I already checked and her number is part of the mobile to mobile network. I went to Alltel's website and on there, you can type in a receivers phone number, your phone number, and a text message and it sends for free. I did this and this is the only thing that actually went through to her phone but she could not reply to that message. We can call each other fine and I can receive texts from her all day long. This just began yesterday... before this, we sent numerous texts back and forth all day and night so this has never been a problem. I tried absolutely everything I could think of to troubleshoot this, and am at a complete loss now as to what is wrong. Is there a chance my cell number got blocked from sending texts to her? I kind of threw this option out when I was able to send a text through the Alltel website. Lastly, we each can send and receive texts from everyone else in our contacts....
Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time.
I am having the exact same problem and I have a completely different phone. We have also both tried resetting our phones and it hasnt made a difference! I'm ready to find a brick wall and throw my phone at it.
Have you been having issues with your phone dropping more calls and having more dead spots too? For some reason when I do find one it takes FOREVER for mine to get service again!
Just saw this post, after I made mine.
I am having the exact same problem with a friend in Mexico. I can recieve her messages, most of the times, sometimes I will recieve them an hour or two later but they can not recieve my text messages. This started happening this weekend on friday, but before that everything was find (except for the lost text message every once in a while - maybe 1 or 2 a week). But my friend has recieved only one of my messages since friday night and I have sent 6 or 7.
We have no clue whats going on, but for whatever reason its not working now.
Oh and I have a Storm
