I have an unlocked Bold, and am using the device in India with Airtel.
When I try to send SMS it moves to pending, instead of it getting sent out.
Note that this is always reproducible, and a quick Alt+Shift+Del to restart the device sorts out this problem, but it reappears again a few days later.
This is quite frustrating!
Therefore i think that the only choice for me is an upgrade, and my current version is 18.104.22.168. However this version is not locked to a network, and I would like to update to another/latest version of the Bold which is not linked to a network(searching the internet i am able to get the latest versions for Verizon/Orange and other networks, but not one which is say, network free).
Are there any links to the latest (unfettered by network) version?
(NOTE: I am not subscribed to a BES.)
Note that the following options do not correct this error:
(Going to SMS options and )
a). Changing the network to send over. (currently set to CS, since PS service is not available, even when set to other options - PS only, CS pref, PS pref, does not work).
b). Changing data coding scheme (to 7bit or UCS2)
c). Service Centre number is ok (+919845087001 - note that since after a reset this works, means that the service centre number is ok).
