    Text message "failed"

    I composed a text, plain text, no attachments, no frills; in an ongoing thread.

    When I tried to send it, the balloon turned gray, the word "Failed" with a lock above it appeared at the bottom left outside of the balloon where "pending" or the time sent usually appear.

    A red exclamation point in a circle appears vertically centered to the right of the gray balloon. If I click on the red exclamation point, the gray balloon moves to the bottom of all of the balloons (where the most recent sent/received balloon sits).

    I can't enter the balloon.

    I've no idea why this text is (mis)behaving. Can anyone please enlighten me?

    Re: Text message "failed"

    That's happened to me before using GoSMS. Reboot your phone and try again. If that doesn't work, go into application manager, scroll down to your texting app and clear your cache.
