You may have text messaging issues if your device is:

  • Unable to send or receive text messages
  • Displaying error codes or network messages when you try to send a text message

These steps help identify and resolve the underlying cause. After completing each step, test to see if the issue is fixed. If not, continue to the next step.

    3. Look for Network:
      • Network is in the Passed section: Your phone is connected to the Sprint network.
      • Network is in the Failed or Flagged section: Update the Data Profile.
        1. From Device Diagnostics, tap System Updates.
        2. Tap Update Profile.
        3. After the profile update is complete, tap OK.
  2. Perform a soft reset.

    A soft reset reconnects your HTC One M8 to the Sprint network.

    1. Press and hold the Power key and Volume Up key for 10 seconds.
    2. Your HTC One M8 restarts.
