Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman W810i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Texts go to outbox but are not sent

For the last few days everytime i have tried to send a text, instead of the usual 'message sending' and 'message sent' screens that come up there have been no screens telling me that the message has been sent. I then noticed that all the texts i have 'sent' have actually piled up in my outbox and have not been sent. now everytime i try to send a text it just goes to the outbox without sending.

I have noticed that the first text that got stuck in my outbox cannot be deleted for some reason. i have tried moving it to drafts and then into saved messages but this has still not sorted the problem.

my phone seems to work in every other regard so its quite confusing.

    I have a Sony Ericsson W890i and have the exact same problem, although I have somehow now managed to delete the first text that got stuck from my outbox it has not helped at all and no texts are sending when I know I have 300 free texts left. Also I am still able to call

Had a similar problem myself (Sony Ericsson W890i) - just a plain old SMS message got 'queued' in the outbox, and all further messages I tried to send got sent to the outbox too without ever being sent.

What I did was delete all the messages that I could from the outbox (5 out of the 6 which had been 'queued'), and the one remaining message that I could not delete I cancelled, sent it to the Drafts folder, and then Saved it (to the SIM). I then switched off the phone, took out the SIM card, put it in my old Sony Ericsson handset, switched that on, went to the Messages folder and deleted this one troublesome SMS message from the 'Saved' sub folder. Replaced the SIM in my current handset, and sending messages thereafter was no problem. Hope it works for you too!

It takes almost all day just to send pictures on the text messaging. If I just send a text its sent that quick but a picture how do I fix that?

When you send text, you are sending very few bytes (8 bit character representation), basically one for each character you type. When you send a photo, say a 12 MB one, you are sending 12,000,000 bytes of information encompassing many packets instead of just one for SMS. And of course it takes longer. If you are wifi-ing it, takes longer and sometimes the carrier charges you per picture. My guess is you don't have full signal bars either. In other words, you can't, really.

Text messages being sent twice

if your phone is sending double text messages try taking out battery then putting back in and repowering back on this always solves it for me. Hope it helps!!
