Have you experienced the “deferred message” bug? It’s quite annoying and has been a problem in Nokia since the old Symbian days. The issue:
- a message (sms/mms) fails to send,
- gets stuck in outbox as deferred and
- CANNOT be modified/deleted.
- Stuck with outbox/sending icon that confuses from actual status.
Up until Symbian^3 however, it was easy to just move the message back to drafts to edit/send. But now it appears to be a permanent issue until perhaps Nokia decides to fix this in next firmware update. Is this our version of the Apple iPhone 4 Alarm fail? e.g. (Though this has been an issue for many for several months).
Several Nokia N8 users, some C6, and C7 users too have experienced this issue. It’s a popular thread on Nokia forums and several other non-nokia forums around the web.
We CANNOT delete the message at all from the outbox. For some users, they.ve reported syncing with Ovi Store fixed it for them. Well, I think I managed to send the message but it’s still stuck in my outbox (btw, Ovi Suite 3.0 message sync is a joy to use now. Very quick whereas before it was a pain).
update from thejan2009:
“problem because of one-click interaction.. feature is still there but UI isn’t implemented properly…”
lol I even tried BT keyboard to see if it was a touch issue.
- Deleting the conversation
- Hard Reset N8
- Soft Reset N8
I find that “sending/outbox” symbol annoying. Some messages sometimes wait to be resent – or if I have no signal and need to move somewhere where I have signal to send. What If I just get used the the outbox icon and ignore actual important messages that are failing to send? How do I differentiate? Do I have to keep checking they’ve been sent? (Though message conversation view shows if a message is sent, so not that much of a problem really…just more the annoying icon).
