    This problem has never happened to me before and I've also never heard of it and can't find any information about it anywhere.

    I have an unlocked jailbroken iphone that's never given me any serious problems for about a year.

    When I click the text icon, the top of the screen reads:

    Text messages (-1)


    Where all my listed text messages used to be it is now blank.

    When I try to send a text after typing in the contact name or number it immediately says:

    Error sending message


    I tried restarting the iphone. I can send and receive phone calls perfectly.

    Anyone ever had this problem or have any advice?

    It sounds as if the SMS database has got corrupted.

    Do you have a back-up that you could restore to, from a date before the problem first occurred?

    You need to connect to itunes and do a backup restore from a known good backup that you last did.. You may have to re-jailbreak your phone though?
