I have an issue my Epic dropping the area code on my replies to text messages. Doesn't happen to all my responsese just to specific contacts. I get error 9230 - "invald number of digits...." The contacts have area codes in their contact info & I can receive their texts. If I create a "new" text to them it works b/c it pulls the right info from the contact. Just fails when I respond to them. I have updated the contact info - deleted & recreated the contact and still have the issues. Any ideas? It is very frustrating!!!
There are several things that can cause this problem and several different fixes. I personally have assisted in resolving this problem after deleting the contact completely from gmail and the device and the text message history...then recreating on the device as a gmail contact that has fixed this problem. However, on some customer's phones they are reporting that didn't fix it (after recreating the contact..and a few messages...the problem is back again) and after a visit to the store, and a factory data reset...then it works fine. I would recommend deleting the contact, the message history, and the gmail contact from the gmail website. Then recreating on the device as a gmail contact- and testing and if that doesn't work, doing a factory data reset (home/menu/settings/privacy/factory data reset)
