tberezansky,

Let's resolve your texting troubles.  Is your VZW Messaging application up to date?  Do your text messages work better in the standard messaging application?  When did this start happening? Please share some details. Thanks

I am unable to send text messages. When I type a text message and send it, i see the sending circle and it twirls for minutes our hours. I have an LG2 and I live in PA. This has been doing for days.

Thanks for the additional information and for trying those troubleshooting steps!  Please let me know if your WiFi is "On" and connected to a WiFi network http://vz.to/1EGp8lT?  If WiFi is on, please disable and retry sending the text message.  Also let me know if your device displays a 3G or 4G signal.  Please keep me posted.  Thanks!

No. It did not solve my problem. I tired that before assuming that it was

trying to connect to a Wi-Fi connection.

Old text messages are coming in.

This causes an issue especially if my family need to reach me. 2 days ago,

my upgraded its operating system and I thought that would solve the

problem. It didn't.

Please help...
