walletdipper Level 1 Level 1

Hi All - I sent an sms using my iphone 5 - It is PAYG and had no money in it. (stupidly)


It tried to send as an SMS but gave the 'green button reject message'.(no money)


Step 2 in this stupidity - the phone keeps trying to send the deleted text via SMS and wont stop notifying me of this. Totally ruining the functionallity of my phone, and more so totally annoying. All I want to do is stop the constant re-trying of sending the deleted SMS.


Any ideas?


Many Thanks!

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.3

    Delete the message thread and then reboot the phone.

    Hi, thanks for your reply - the message thread, for the resending text has already been deleted, hence I cant just hit cancel on it.


    Also rebooting the phone has made no difference.

    Then go to settings>general>reset>reset network settings and see if that helps.

    Hi, thanks again - unfortunately this hasn't worked

    To reset the phone did you:

    Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously ignoring the red slider should one appear until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart. See if that fixes your problem.

    Well the next step I can recommend then if no one else has anything else is to restore the phone from a backup you had previous to you sending that text.

    Hi, many thanks for your help - Pressing and holding sleep/reset hasn't worked, the msg is still continually reporting it is failing to send. I can restore to a previous version however I'll lose my paid apps. Is there any way to work around this. I'm only concerned about one app - Epocam HD which I purchased last month. My last backup on PC is 4 March 13 - before I bought the paid app - Itunes advises me I'll have to re-pay to get my apps (app) back. Even though it advises that icloud backed up this morning at 1:30 am (which although it is before the text, I cannot manually select this restore).


    What a mess!

    As I see restoring txt messages to iPhone isn't straightforward, I havent attempted that yet.


    If I restore the text message somehow - will the old thread show up in the phone, allowing me to somehow register the cancel of the SMS?


    Just a thought as this is such an annoyance.
