Default Samsung Omnia W - SMS Problem

Dear friends, hello!

I'm new in XDA, and i migrated from Android to Windows Phone,
A 4 days a go i've bought the Samsung Omnia W (SGH-i677).

I liked too much this platform, i'm loving it. Really!

But i got a little (and serious) issue with my device. I don't know if this is a problem of my device, or a problem of Windows Phone.

This is my issue: When i send a SMS Message, sometimes the message is sent correctly, sometimes my destiny doesn't receive any message. And few minutes after, i got a error message "Couldn't send a message. Try again".

And sometimes i receive a SMS message with no problems. Sometimes my destiny tell'me that sent me a message, but i dont receive any message).


I search for any incidence about this issue in Internet. I found some friends with the same problem. And they tell about this problem after a NoDo update, but i'm already using the Mango. I couldn't find how to fix this error.

But i saw in the internet, they telling you to change the connection to 2G (Turn off the 3G). And as they say, it works to me. ALL blocked SMSs were sent correctly!

Someone here knows what can i do about it?
I dont want back to Android/iOS. I really liked the platform, and i'm very happy with WP7. But this is a serious issue, i really use the SMS service.

What can i do about it?

Am sure this an operator related issue. Make sure the sms center number is correct.

This problem cannot be operator-specific. I am facing the same issue with an Airtel connection.

Default Not an operator issue

hi. This certainly not operator specific issue. I have tried with 3 different operators and the problem persists. I have contacted samsung service center and I was told to bring the handset to service center for update which is available. I don't know exactly which update they are talking exactly but since I have updated my OS it must be firmware update. I am going to send my phone to service center in next few days. I will get back to you with their response.

Hi,

Actually I am able to send. But not to multiple persons. Using Vodafone.


I think it's problem with WP7 how it sends the messages.
Possible to discuss in WP support forums.

Can any one confirm it's not a problem in Nokia/HTC and only specific to Samsung?

are you able to send on 3g+/hspa network too, cause i know 3 other people on vodafone 3g who cannot

they can only send message when they switch off data

and if they are on edge then data is not a problem, even if it's on , text can be sent

btw, i have sent text to 5 people together with no issues at all right now..

I am unable to send to more than 1 person when data is enabled or whatever. Silly.
