    Hello guys!

    I have a very annoying issue that happens when I send text messages to other people, all they receive it's an empty text message, a bunch of symbols or the letters all garbled up or sometimes they don't receive the text message at all. This has happened to me with people on Sprint and Tmobile networks and people I send messages to overseas.

    I was wondering if anyone had the same issue or perhaps a fix.

    Thank you!

    same here

    Only happens when I send to a nextel subscriber.
    Either blank or all "o's"

    No fix that I know of, I'm on a legit plan with att&t

    Hey thanks for replying, it's been a while since I posted this.

    I traced the error to a language issue. If you are typing a text message in spanish and special characters are displayed as part of the auto correct option (acentos, the "ñ" letter, etc) and on top of that, if the other person doesn't have an iphone, then chances are they are not gonna get it.

    But thanks for keeping and eye out
