Texting and Group Texting Questions

OK, so my phone someitmes goes out of sleep mode and lights up as it looks like its about to recieve a text.

Some times is does, sometimes it doesnt.

Sometimes it lights up, and no text, so i open up my web browser and I recieve like 3 texts from earlier times...

anyone know whats up with that? I know its not the sprint network, its phone related...


Also, my friends say they are doing some group text? where they are all in a convo with each other via text i guess... anyone konw what this is about?

and they say they send me messages in this group chat via sms, but i dont receive ANY!



Thanks,

Zack

Re: Texting and Group Texting Questions

Its because the TP2 does not natively support group SMS. I also don't know of any possible apps that do as well,the good news tho is that if u don't want to buy a new android or WP phone (both natively support group SMS) u can download and install the android build on SD card to boot into android.

Your device will come out of sleep for a number of reasons. It will sometimes light up when your signal switches from 1X to EV or when you start and stop roaming. This may be causing your issue.

Regarding the text question, check out this thread:

@edvbe if you are subscribed to verizon service then you dont need a sim to send/receive texts, remove it.
