Hello All, I’m guessing this might be covered in some of the existing discussion strings, but frankly I just don’t have to wade through them all to figure this out (I have browsed through a number of them without luck), so am hoping someone might have a quick answer. I’ve been having lots of general texting issues lately that seem to be getting progressively worse since about early Feb. 2017. Basically, there are lots of people not getting my texts, while there are others who do. I’m baffled as to why I’m having such sketchy luck with sending texts to certain people. The texts that have issues are both group texts and single recipient texts, there is no pattern there. The Republic Wireless app is up to date, I’ve updated PRL, Profile and Motorola Software (I have a Moto G - Lollipop 5.1.1).
I’ve tried using both Hangouts and Messaging app, doesn’t seem to make a difference. I’ve found that when sending images, they pretty much always go through, but its just the plain text messages that are having trouble.
Is there something obvious I need to check in my settings?
Also, one other odd thing that has happened lately…this might be a clue as to what is going on. See the screenshot below of my Messaging app. Notice the ‘6’ there at the top. If I understand correctly, if there is a number there, that is supposed to indicate how many new/unread messages I have waiting for me, right? And if there are any, they should be shown in bold text in my list of messages. However, at the current time, even though that 6 is there, I DO NOT have any new, unread messages waiting for me. So, why is that 6 there? Has some corruption of my messages list occurred? Is there some way to ‘refresh’ my list of messages to see the unread messages waiting for me (if there really are any, that is)?
