I just bought mine on August 1st, and am having the same problem. I plan to take mine back and exchange it for something else, since clearly the "network error - networking not responding" problem has not been fixed and has been happening for some time now. Since the phone has a serious problem, does anyone know if they will wave the 35 dollar "restocking fee"?
I ALSO HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. I HAD TO TURN MY RUMOR TOUCH ON AND OFF EVERYTIME I WANTED TO SEND A MESSAGE OR I KNEW I SHOULD HAVE BEEN GETTING MESSAGES. I THEN ALSO COULD NOT GET FACEBOOK NOTIFICATIONS. I CALLED SPRINT EVERYDAY TWO AND THREE TIMES A DAY AND FINALLY TODAY ABOUT 15 MINS AGO MY NOTIFICATIONS ARE WORKING AGAIN AND SO IS MY TEXT MESSAGING....
Power cycle your phone as an interim solution. A fix for this is being tested. I will post more to the forum when I have defnite information to share...just wanted to let you know that it is in the works...
I have been turning on and off but i still can't send or recieve text messages is there anything else i could do?...and i really hope they could fix it soon.
I just got my Rumor Touch in the mail today. I can't send or rec texts, and the power cycle doesn't help. When is this update going to be available?
I got my Rumor Touch on Aug 14th and upgraded my plan to include texting on Aug 16th. I can't send or recieve texts and when I turn it on, I get error code W302. I'm honestly thinking about getting a different phone if this problem doesn't get fixed.
I've had the same problems as well. When I first got the phone I loved it. Then in the first two months of having it, the issues began. First it started out with not being able to send texts. Then it continued, whenever i'd receive a text it'd either reset itself or the screen would show blank on the menu screen, when I would manually reset it it would completely freeze up so I had to take the battery out and put it back in. A real pain, now i'm stuck with a phone that sucks after paying over a hundred dollars for it when it first came out (by mistake, I had wanted the Rumor 2 but this was all they had in stock).
Have same problem. Just got this phone on Aug 20 and added Texting to my plan. The texting is intermittant. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Power cycling the phone generally fixes the problem for awhile. Will be watching this forum to determine what to do next. We also have a LG Litus Elite - no issue at all with that phone.
Anyone having this issue actually take their phone in and get it replaced with a different model? My phone is starting to constantly do the same thing when trying to send messages (although I can access the web which makes no sense) I dont want to get the same model if I am going to have to keep going through this crap all the time. Have had phone for less than 60 days
