    So I got up this morning, sent two text messages and when I tried to send a third, it took awhile and ended up telling me that "Message Sending Failed". Every message I have tried to send since then has ended this way. Anyone know what is wrong?

    Provider: Verizon
    Phone: Motorola Razr V3M

    Are you trying to send in an area that doesn't have service? I've only gotten this when I have a poor signal.

    Well its from my house (which sadly dosent get the strongest signal) and in the beginning I had one bar, but then I went upstairs and had about 3 bars and still could not get the message to send.

    EDIT: hmm...just got a message to send with one bar...not sure what the problem was.

    Hadnt deleted any of my inbox/sent messages since I got the phone (which was about 300-400 messages. So maybe it was full? I deleted some and now it works, so maybe it was that...*shrug*

    You're most likely going to need to call your cell phone provider for assistance with that. From what I've heard, you might need a new SIM card, or need to enter a certain code that your cell phone provider should have.

    My phone started doing the same thing to me this morning. I have a motorola razor v3 like you. I was able to send one message earlier, but now it wont let me. Keeps giving me the message Sending failure, either status 100 service not support and sending failure status 34 general problem.

    I used to work at a cell phone store and we would see this problem from time to time. Usually, when we would see it, it would be an issue on the carrier's end more so than with the phone itself. If you keep trying to send messages and can't, you might want to call your carrier.
