Help SMS Draft Issues


Dec 27, 2009
Miami, FL
I've been having this problem with the SMS sending and drafts so I want to see if anyone else is having it.

When I send an sms to anyone, if I immediately leave the sms screen while it still says the message is "sending", then it will send the message, but it will also leave the message as a draft on top of that. It doesn't happen every single time, but quite often.

The other annoyance is that when a message goes into a draft, you can not just erase the draft, it will stay as a draft forever until you send that person another message.

This isn't really that big a deal, but it's just annoying for me to see the draft message over and over.
I was able to delete the draft tho by tapping in the text box and then manually deleting all the words out. Then exit out and it doesn't show up as a draft anymore. Silly but better than nothing I guess

I've tried this also, and it doesn't work for me. I delete the words out, and the "draft" status goes away, but only for a moment, then it comes back.
