Default Blank SMS

Please Login to Remove!

When I send SMS messages to people they are reporting that they are coming through blank. The only one that gets the text that I send is my missus (phew!).

Does cause me some problems at work though. Has anyone else had this issue? Do I need to hard reset the device or anything? IF so How do I go about that?

Thanks for your help in advance,

Neil.

Try popping out the battery and resetting the device that way. I've never heard of this problem (along with 47 other people, at least), but give this a shot.

Too many missing details to conjecture where to start looking for resolution. What BB? What version of OS? What carrier are you using? Are the people you are SMSing using the same carrier?

Hi,

Thanks to you both for responding. I am on a 7100v (vodafone UK). My missus is on O2 (another carrier) and she recieves the text within the SMS fine (she has a Siemens phone). It appears that If I send an SMS to a siemens phone it works fine and the recipient can recieve the text in the SMS.
If I send it to someone with a Nokia or Motorola it does not pick up the text within the SMS (the recipient gets the SMS message but it has not text, it is blank).
I have tried to perform a reset on the device by removing the battery and replacing it.

Still no joy.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks

Neil.

Have you tried leaving few spaces or blank line before you start typing your message?

It sounds like the BB is working 'OK' and the SMS is getting out because your missus can receive them. Sounds like some type of addressing or compatability issue if others are getting a blank message. Maybe try testing by using teleflip. I assume that would work anywhere.
