  2. Definitely works, thanks for making the solution so well explained, I never would have found it in the settings cause that option is definitely buried deep

      • The new version of handcent does not correct the problem. It doesn’t have that option anymore. Do you know of another app that can correct this issue Thanks

  3. I have this error, it is so annoying and im very close to just wiping the phone back to factory install. I tried to fix it using Handcent, but I can’t find menu plus and I believe it’s been removed. I can’t find “undelivered messages” anywhere in that app. Do you know if it’s still available or I this solution is obsolete?

    • You Can Disable your default Messaging app from settings and can download some other sms app (like Go SmS Pro, Hangouts, Handcent SMS or SMS bacup+) from Google play store and then set that app as default Message App.

  8. I want to use the default app again. Message is sent through 3rd party app but not sent through default messaging app

    • Just Uninstall the new messaging app you Installed.
      Or
      Go to Settings then Apps and then tap on Messenger or whatever the name of default messaging app and then tap Enable. And you can use default App.

    • Yr Hangout ma issue aa rhay hai usay update kro shayed theek ho jaye sometimes wo internet connection/Cellular data ki connectivity mangta hai SMS send krne k liye bhi. Ap Messenger ya koi aur app use kr lo Messeging k liye ap ka issue resolve ho jaye ga. ek do apps ma Uper Recommend bhi ki hn.

      Sir, Hangouts is having some issues try updating that. Sometimes it requires Wifi/Cellular Data to even send local SMS via sim. Try Using Messenger or some other app. I have Recommended some above.

      Thanks!

  10. I downloaded the Handcent app but whenever I go to undelivered messages there are none. If I go back to my regular messaging app the error still occurs

    • You can use Handcent or some other new cool SMS app you like and disable default app. and Your Issue will be solved. Or See if there is a update to default app then updating that might fix.
      Thanks!
