    Okay so its been a few weeks into my relationship with my Samsung Focus.

    I bought it off contract from someone on Kijiji. The problem I seem to be having is that sometimes I don't always receive sms messages. My girlfriend (clearly the one I always txt) says she always gets my msgs. As far as I know it just happens randomly...There doesn't seem to be any trends that I notice, it basically just makes up its own mind and chooses not to receive the txt.

    I have the Network Profile app installed and it is set to the Rogers network; the carrier I am with. In Settings>cellular my network selection is set to automatic.....and currently i have no APN added.

    I've read in the forums before that someone was having sms issues but they seemed to follow a pattern...So im not sure if my situation is the same. Regardless, I'm quite frustrated as I do love the phone....but its turning into a mini tablet because of this loss of functionality I'm experiencing.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    try doing a factory reset (hold volume down, camera button then power till a prompt is on screen asking you to format the device.) and see if that does it.

    yes I did a factory reset...still experiencing the issue :(

    I came across this post in XDA that fixed a different SMS issue.....is anyone familiar with it?

    "Here's a solution to the problem of late receipt of SMS and SMS sending bug FOR SAMSUNG ONLY solution is to use the menu diagnosis: First, to enter the Diagnosis menu, you must dial number: # # 634 # then the list of applications, Diagnosis appear. In this menu, dial * # 2580 #, then press exactly twice on the "back" button, then press "7 ", "1" and finally the "3". Voila! Now I only reboot the WP! "
