Hey there.

I'm currently facing a problem I've never seen before, and can't seem to find any explanation for it: I sometimes do not receive messages sent by other people.

I have contacted my operator, Vodafone, and they have assured me that all of the messages that were sent to me were successfully delivered to my phone, which reported them as received. They then suggested that I returned it, but unfortunately I cannot as I have rooted it and therefore the warranty is void.

The people who send me the texts which do not get received already have the "Delivery Report" option activated, and they do get a delivery report even when I do not receive the text messages saying I did receive them.

I use GO SMS Pro, and have the stock messaging app uninstalled. The problem existed before its uninstallation, I just uninstalled it since I was getting duplicate MMS.

I am currently running CM10, on R4. I am unable to know whether or not the problem already existed before, but I think it didn't. While I was on stock I used to text a lot, then stopped texting for a while, and only restarted texting once I was into CyanogenMod. The problem existed in CM9, although it was very rare (would happen once a week, at most). Now it happens quite frequently. Yesterday, 4 messages were not received: huge pain in the ass as people think I'm not answering when in fact I didn't get their message. Talking to people never works out when you're having an important conversation and have to ask "Did you not answer, or did I not get your message?" frequently.

I can grab catlogs, and do whatever you want, although I'd like to keep a fresh reinstall as the last measure, and not the first.

Thank you,
Kelthar

YES YES YES, they sometimes get received after I restart my phone, sometimes they don't. They will be received if I haven't received any messages after the one that I lost, if I did it won't be received.

Sometimes I also get duplicate messages (or even triplicate), instead of just one (and after checking the message details, timestamp says they were all sent at the same time).

I am currently on GO SMS (Pro), and the problem persists. I am considering reflashing into Infusion if the issue proves to be related to CyanogenMod only, although I prefer Cyanogen over Infusion (both awesome, but Infusion is limited by ICS)

I actually had the problem on Infusion, before updating to Cyanogen, so I don't think that it's ROM specific.

Just wondering if you did a restore using Titanium etc which may have screwed the settings?

I never restored any settings. The only things I restored was application data, but none of which was related to texting. The only restore I did related to texting was the SMS restoration using GO Backup, but I don't think it has anything to do with it, makes no sense.

Unless anyone else has any idea I would try and re-flash the ROM in CWM (Performing full wipes) as this is what I had to do on Infusion to get it working properly again

So the full wipe actually fixed it for you and it has never happened again?

Just on this specific point I'm not sure that rooting necessarily voids your warranty but you can always reflash a suitable stock ROM and thereby unroot it if you need to return it for any reason.

I would like to try and fix it myself (with the help of people around here) before returning it, especially since it's a software problem.

I have the exact same problem, on Portuguese Vodafone. It happens in the original Rom, Infusion Rom, CM9 Rom and CM 10.1 Rom.
I used to use GOSMS but since I started using the original messaging application, never had problems again.

I'm on Portuguese Vodafone as well, I guess I'll give it a shot then!

Now going to upgrade to the latest CM10 revision, then I'll uninstall GO SMS Pro and see if the problem disappears. I wonder if this happens with other texting apps or only GO.

I have never used GO apps, I use the stock messenger app, and have also had sms problems, as I've stated a few posts above

So Mario Cardoso might've changed more than just the messaging app. Perhaps he changed something which actually fixed the problem but he doesn't know. Either way, will change application just in case it is causing it, for some weird reason.

EDIT:
Current status: SMS stopped working altogether after OTA to CM10 R6. I do not receive texts I send to myself from my own phone nor texts other people send me, and happens on both GO SMS and stock messaging. Restarting no longer makes me receive the messages that were lost.


MMS are also lost, and delivery reports still mark messages as received.

Attempted restoring to previous state, with stock messaging frozen and GO SMS Pro running, and it did nothing. The OTA must've corrupted something, only logical explanation.

Now considering a fresh install as soon as I get home if I don't fix it until then.

I hope you can fix it!

I think I didn't changed anything... but I don't put my hands on fire!

I finished the fresh reinstall, this time in CM10.1 (might as well upgrade while I'm at it, right?). I can now receive texts again, but only with time will I find out if they are getting lost.

One problem I do have with the stock messaging app is that it is EXTREMELY slow. Basically, I have 19k messages stored. This wasn't a problem with GO SMS Pro, but apparently it is a problem with the stock messaging app that attempts to load them all into memory, or something like that (only logical explanation I find).

EDIT: By extremely slow I mean it stays in the "Loading Conversations" screen for MINUTES
