    Fascinate Sending Blank Text Messages and Not Receiving Text Messages

    I've looked online to see if I can find any solutions, but I can't seem to find any so I'll post on here.

    The issue:

    A couple days ago my phone started sending out blank text messages to everyone that I texted as well as not being able to receive any text messages. I noticed this when I was getting any responses back from people. I've tested it on my family and friends phones (sending and trying to recieve texts).

    I've tried using third party messaging applications, *228 (reactivating my phone and updating my PRL, factory reset, battery pull, checking for system updates, etc. etc. all with no success.

    I've had my phone since November and haven't had any issues with texting until now. I don't know if the recent update had anything to do with it, but I would appreciate any ideas or solutions!

    Thanks.

    I read of txts being sent and ending up being delivered to a different contact but I haven't heard of blank txts being received. Interesting. And kinda scary! There are some msgs I wouldn't want going to the wrong person!

    I'm assuming you are not rooted and are running the DL09 OTA update from VZ?

    When you check menu / settings / about phone, do the baseband and build match. The only tomes I've seen this happen are when modem doesn't match build. I don't know how that could happen on a non rooted phone though unless the ota didn't install correctly.

    The Baseband says:

    S:i500.04 V.DL09

    The Build number says:

    SCH-I500.DI01


    So I guess they don't match huh...I don't know how that happened then. How would I fix that? Is that what's causing my texting issues you think?

    That would definitely cause text message issues...

    Whoa...you aren't rooted and you don't match? Odd, but also out of my league....

    thats so weird dude that same thing was happening to me today. my phone is rooted however and i downloaded the DL09 update manually. then i upgraded my phone to froyo and it solved the problem. i know that will fix your phone from first hand experience. if your interested let us know and we can help you root your phone. but if you want to just return your phone because its not rooted you can do that as well

    I like my Fascinate and would rather not return it, so if rooting it is the only way to fix the issue I'm not opposed to it. I just don't know how to do that, so I'd definately appreciate the help.
