S6 Edge Text Messages Not Sent Has Spinning Circle
Problem: Everytime I send a text message, it shows as “sending” and has the spinning circle next to my messages. However, people are responding to my texts, and are receiving them fine. So I guess the phone is technically working, but for some reason my messages don’t show as “sent” sometimes until days later… even though people are receiving and responding.
Solution: Since your text messages are being sent out then it’s safe to say that the problem is not caused by some network problem. We will then concentrate our troubleshooting to the phone itself.
The first thing that you will need to do in this case is to clear the cache and data of the text messaging app from the application manager. Sometimes this app will accumulate a lot of temporary data and if this data gets corrupt then this kind of problem can occur.
In case the issue persists then the next step is to check if an app you installed is causing the problem. To do this just start the phone in Safe Mode then check if the issue still occurs in this mode. If it doesn’t then it could be caused by an app you downloaded. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.
In case the above steps fails to fix the problem then you should proceed with the steps listed below.
- Wipe the cache partition of the phone from the recovery mode.
- Backup your phone data then do a factory reset.
S6 Edge IMS Service Has Stopped After Software Update
Problem: i have update my samsung galaxy S6 edge to the latest software update, since then i get a pop up “IMS Service has stopped” tried everything including safe mode and still the same problem, vodafone said that everything is running correctly from their end
Solution: To fix the IMS service has stopped error you will need to clear the cache and data of the text messaging app first from the application manager. If the issue persists and since this occurred right after a software update then it’s very likely that this is caused by old software data that has not been completely removed during the update process. You will need to backup your phone data then do a factory reset to fix this problem.
