valpocile2010,

Thank you for using Sprint Community to voice your questions and concerns.  Over the past weekend, a known issue was reported with the iPhone 5 and SMS.  The known issue states that customers will experience intermittent issues sending text messages.  The issue has been reported and Apple is working on a fix.  The issue will be addressed in the next maintenance release.

Sincerely,

Thanks for letting us know about the issue Fergie_B. I have noticed you a lot on the forums lately and just want to say thank you for going around and helping us with our issues.

I had the invalid sim issue and just got a new phone but noticed over the weekend the massive dropping between 3G and O as well as messages not going through A LOT.

Invalid sim has been taken care of and I just did the make sure I have internet and powercycled my device. Been about 10 mins and so far no O yet. Haven't seen any LTE in Orange County, California yet though!

likquidpopx,

It's my pleasure to help in any way that I can.  Let me know if your data issue hasn't been resolved.  Maybe tomorrow?  If so, we'll go ahead and look into your location.  If we need to do so, I'll need your city, state and nearest zip code so I can review your surrounding towers.

Sincerely

Yes I have experiecnced my SMS and MMS not sending as well. I would have to make several attempts to resend them before it worked. I will be looking forward to the update, thanks for sharing Fergie.

Thank you for sharing Fergie. I thought I made a mistake on moving to sprint, but I am hoping that the update will come out soon in order to fix this. I hate the fact not being able to send SMS or MMS and have my friends telling me I sent it out way too many times.

I am not only having that problem, but starting today I can no longer send email.  I keep getting a message saying that says, "A copy has been placed in your Outbox.  The sender address (my email address.net) was rejected by the server."  I haven't changed anything on my phone and until today have had no issues with email.  I can receive email.  I can send email from my pc using the same email account.  What is going on???

Hello fergie,

Thank you for replying to our problems. I have the same problem i can receive sms over my iphone 5 but i cannot send any. I can make phone call just fine too.

When i bought my iphone5 from sprint they said it's unlocked and i would be able to use it on different networks internationally. So if apple/sprint manage to fix this issue please let us know because it's really frustrating.

Thank you

Chris

Fergeie_B: thanks for this info. FYI, I did turn off LTE in the settings (as suggested in previous discussion) but hope that I can turn it back on as LTE is coming to the Minneapolis/St Paul area. I have the latest version (6.0.1)

My issue has been "failed message" error but they actually went through.. I am still able to access/send gmail,  outlook express (on Safari), etc. I have to say that I am not experiencing the issues that others have reported about data (and I hope I don't ). I have been a Sprint customer since 1999 - I know there are pains along the way with updates/changes, etc but that is life.

philipsimolo,

I'm very sorry to hear that you're experiencing issues sending email.  First, let me apologize for my delayed response.  As you can imagine, I have many emails that I respond to daily.  The error that you are receiving is indicative of a possible change in server settings from your email provider.  What kind of email are you using?  Gmail?  Yahoo?  An email address from your internet service provider or company?  One way or another, I would recommend contacting the provider for your email address to confirm the correct outgoing server settings.  They may have changed a port, a username, etc..

Sincerely
