Smartphone: Samsung Galaxy S3 SIII
Recently, for whatever reason, my new Samsung Galaxy S3 started having some funny little glitches – which most devices are prone to do after you install all the apps that I do. So, what any tech savvy person (you) would do, is restart the device!
However, after restarting my device, I tried to send some SMS text messages on the phone, and noticed I would press send, and they’d be lost into the ether, not showing up on window I had just sent the SMS message to.
Obviously this isn’t good if you can’t send SMS messages with your smartphone.
Rather quickly I noticed that my date and time were waaaay off. So, I went to settings and selected to Automatically Adjust Date & Time, which happens almost instantaneously and voila, everything was solved.
- Settings -> More -> Date and Time -> select Automatic date and time
That was it. That simple.
Hope this works!
If this doesn’t work for you, then your next bet it to probably do a soft or hard reset. But, before you try to do this, make sure to have everything backed up!
