Thanks for your response.
Okay – here’s some info.
The update was done two weeks ago.
Am using the supplied messenger app. Haven’t tried Facebook.
Sometimes the sending of a simple text appears to take over 5 minutes!
It does not appear to be tied to signal strength.
Just tried sending a quick message to wife’s iPhone – after just over two minutes it was received but my phone was still displaying the “sending...” status.
Have changed priority setting from normal to high both for text and mms – no apparent effect.
Tried sending text to my phone – first one seemed to work fine – second one was slow, maybe 20 seconds to complete.
Phone is LG G2 – no sim card to play with.
Have cycled power off/on – no apparent effect.
Thanks for any help.
Ah hah! Tried your suggestion – (Thanks for pointing that out) and got same problem but with an error message saying something like “unfortunately wireless storage ....don’t recall the rest.
I did try to send a message and it was delivered after about 90 seconds but the “sending .... status lasted for 4 to 5 minutes.
A reply was sent and I got it quickly. May be an outgoing thing only – not enough testing to verify that though.
Tried several more texts which seemed to act normally – perhaps more time was required to initialize sim?
Looking promising – I’ll beat it up a bit and contact you if problem returns.
BTW – I got a screen that said error code 9001 call 800 922-0204 this morning – it’s happened before but I have not reported it.
If you have tried the SIM card pull, try pulling it with the phone on, then power down and re insert and power on. Second, clear the cache for the stock messenger app in app manager. 3rd, if you haven't already done so, a factory reset is almost a necessary step with this last update.
texting and multimedia seems to be back on track. Any advice as to how to get the battery life back to something reasonable. I’d estimate that it’s lasting 30-40 % of the previous os version. Are there new apps in the background or options that need to be reset after the rev 5 update? A FDR seems excessive, but also seems to be the consensus.
Thanks for your time.
Those apps are theoretically optimized during the update, but sometimes they don't and you wind up with apps that need to be uninstalled and reinstalled. You can spend some time trying to find those affected ones, or take care of the system as a whole in one swoop, which can greatly benefit other processes as well.
