Texts Stuck on Sending...

2021-01-19, 1:38 AM

I recently got a new g9 Plus. Sometimes when I try to send texts on Messages it gets stuck on 'sending'. Restarting the phone solves this problem but I don't want to do that every time I want to send a text. I never had this issue with my previous phones.

 

Any help would be appreciated. Thxs.

Hi YEP12

 

Can you please confirm if your network signal strength is good? Also, make sure all apps are up to date in Play Store. 

 

Best regards,

Thanks for the reply. All apps are up to date. I made sure of that when it wasn't sending.

The signal isn't at 100% but once I reset the phone, the network signal doesn't change and it sends.

Thanks for confirming. How long have you waited before resorting to rebooting the phone to get the message to send? Also, are you using the stock messaging app or a 3rd party one?

I first noticed the issue when I tried to send a text and noticed the next day that it didn't send. Yesterday I waited about 4 minutes and it sent after moving round the house, if that helped... Normally I'd give it a minute or two before resetting.

Hi YEP12

 

Thank you for your reply. If you're using the stock Messages app by Google, please try sending a message while the phone is in safe mode. 

 

To Enable Safe Mode
1. Press and hold the Power button until Power off comes up on the screen.
2. Touch and HOLD Power off on the screen until reboot to safe mode appears.

Turn off airplane mode.
Just turn off and on the phone to boot back to normal mode.

 

Also, please update your profile with the current phone, carrier and serial number -- this will help me investigate. Please make sure that the options under Settings > System > Motorola Privacy are on as well, and let me know (just reply here) if it's okay for me to look at your apps to see if they are a source of problems.

See here for the instruction. 

 

Best regards,
Rich

Hi. Since replying last time, I have: - tried a different SMS app - deleted any apps that I installed - done a full factory reset on the phone (so if can't be the apps can it?) - asked for help from where I bought the phone from - got a new sim card from my mobile provider - reset the network settings None of this has fixed this issue....

Hi, 

 

Can you please try to Reset apps preferences to see if that helps Settings > Apps & notifications > See all apps > Menu (3 dots on the top right) > Reset app preferences > Reset apps.  Also, please try this enabling the mobile data always-on feature in the developer settings.

 

1. Enable Developer options a. Settings > About Phone > Tap on Build number 7 times > enter PIN/Password

 

2. Go into Developer options a. Settings > System > Advanced > Developer Options > Toggle on Mobile Data Always Active

 

Please check and let us know.

 

Regards

Sandip

@YEP12 unfortunately, this is an annoying glitch in the default (Google) messages app which is very old - I've noticed it sometimes even on non-Motorola phones using the same messages app even three years ago. The messages are usually already sent but the app doesn't display the status right when showing the message on the screen until you close it or restart the phone.

But if your messages are not sending even after waiting for a few minutes or using other SMS app, I think then that the problem might be related to the SIM card or your carrier network. If you have that option, try to use other SIM card (other carrier too if the other SIM from the same carrier gives the same behavior) to check that out.
