Default SMS not sending, but able to receive. MMS + Data Working.

Hello Internet, I just thought I'd chime in on the sms issue many seem to be having.

For me it started in the morning on the 21st. The day before everything was peachy. That morning I woke up and sent my normal texts that I usually do. The first text sent fine like usual, but anything after would fail to send. One quick-fix I found was to toggle airplane mode before sending a message, which would allow me to send another text or two before failing. The most interesting thing about this issue is that my brother, who is on cm 10.2 started having the issue at the exact same time and we aren't even running the same versions of android.

So I called verizon today and after about a half our I was able to get some information. I told the guy that I had tried rebooting, clearing cache, factory reseting, updating my SMSC number, etc. He said it's probably an issue in their end, which makes sense due to the timing of the issue occurring. He said he would do some behind the scenes stuff and call me back on Monday. I guess we'll see if the issue gets resolved. Keep me posted if you find a solution.

Not sure if I'm doing this right usually I use the app but since I can only text on touch wiz based Roms xda app keeps crashing. Anyway I have this issue too mine seems to have started on 2-20 but same thing reboot or toggle airplane mode and I can send one that's it till next reboot. Was running carbon kit Kat. Hopefully Odin tomorrow will fix it touch wiz sucks!

I talked to Verizon again yesterday night, my support ticket is still open, meaning they're looking into the possibility of it being an issue on their end, so nothing new. I'm convinced it's something with them, because of the timing. I'll keep you posted.

Do they know you are running a form of CM? Or are you just saying your texts aren't working?

Just for my own info?

I'm having the same issue that you are. I've already posted a thread. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2657822
Are you on a version of CM? I was on mastamoon's 10.2 and moved to his CM11 and still have the problem. The only other fix I have heard/seen is that you can turn your mobile network to just CDMA and the problem goes away. (Its slow, but it works).

You are from Hershey Pa. I am in the Wilkes/Barre Scranton area. Anyone else experiencing this problem and in this area?

Do you have voice+ or google voice in your app drawer? I've seen some people who have had it in their app drawer who have been able to open that and select disable which remedies the problem. Hopefully Verizon gets back to you.
