    Unhappy Galaxy S2 Sending blank or distorted text messages?

    I've only had this phone for about a month. It's performed remarkably well in that time, but I've had this issue with certain people.
    If I tried to send a text to a few people on my contact list, they always send me a text back saying that my text came in blank, and a few of them forward what I sent, and it's got Chinese characters in it.
    I don't know what's happening. I usually only use my phone for texting and whatnot. So, this is a pretty large problem for me.
    I'd like to avoid a factory reset, if possible. But what kind of problem am I looking at? I've only installed a few apps, and this is my only problem.
    And yes, I've tried taking out the battery. I created this account on the forums to try and get some help. I'm tempted to call up to the AT&T store...

    Just for the heck of it, maybe try installing GoSMS Pro (you must have Go Launcher installed for this), and see if that would help.
    (I'm sure you would like the launcher if you're not already using it).
    Just a thought.

    Have you tried clearing the data from the messaging app?

    Okay, so installing Go SMS Pro worked for the blank text problems. I appreciate the help!
    Wish I didn't need to install an app for this, but that's okay. I'm just thrilled I can finally text my friends and whatnot.
