My wife has a Blackberry Q10.
She receives text messages from all contacts but one.
For that one person, if she starts to draft a message to that contact suddenly all the texts that this contact sent her appear.
But they will not appear until she starts to draft a text to that contact.
Nor is a notification recieved that texts were sent to her from that contact.
She deleted the contact and readded to her phone.
The phone has been upgraded to latest patches and such and of course has been restarted.
What else can be done to fix this?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Good Morning Corey
Thank you very very much for the reply. It is very reassurring to know my old dino phone is still supported 🙂
I think I understand the problem now.
And yes I did do the factory reset and backed up, which got me back working, but i still had the issue i created for myself in the beginning.
Issue was my text conversations were becoming too large. I never deleted the chat in my conversations and one in particular caused my problem of becoming not responsive.
Another mistake I made, was deleting the CONVERSATION (from hub i suppose) but not the CHAT messages. In deleting the conversation, the text would not show up unless i searched for it, and WOULD NOT GIVE ANY NOTIFICATION of new text received. AND all my chat messages that were gumming up were still there, just semi-hidden. Which is kinda wonky of blackberry but there you have it.
What I needed to do was go into the conversation, and "Clear Chat", which deletes the message history (and the problem). It took me multiple tries and waiting and waiting but it finally disappeared.
Now my phone works and texting is fast.
So long story short:
1) Do NOT delete conversation
2) Do CLEAR CHAT (deletes chat history)
Welcome to the Community Forums!
Let's see how we can get your text messaging issue dealt with on your Blackberry.
Have you tried completing a back up and factory rest of device?
Let us know if that helps or if you need assistance with completing reset and restore on your device.
I had the same problem with one contact's text not showing up on my Classic Tried all the things you did, and also could not mass erase the texts from the contact. Finally, I went to the first text of the contact that was there and manually started to delete the texts one by one. After erasing a months worth of text, I was able to purge all the texts and the next text from the contact came normally and text notifications were working. I had a year and a half worth of texts accumulated from the contacts.
Now I know to occasionally purge texts as the texts are not automatically purged by the phone.
Hope this helps you.
We're happy to hear it's working for you now!
Who would have known the device needed another update, this will definitely help others online seeking for a solution to not receiving text messages from one contact, excellent job. Thanks for sharing the information with the Community.
I have a Blackberry Q10 and 2 days ago I started having the same problem described by @danco1000.
I receive text messages from all contacts except one.
For that one contact, when I start to compose a message to that contact, then all the texts from/to that contact appear.
However, no notification is received that texts were sent to me from that contact.
Also, the contact name/number no longer appears in the text message feed.
I have deleted the contact and all text history, but the problem persists.
The phone has been restarted. How can I confirm if I have the latest patches?
Has a solution to this problem been reported?
I am having this issue with one contact right now.
I do not see his texts unless I go to 'compose a messge' and choose him.
Some of my messages are not sending and just timing out. This is how it started on Friday.
I cannot delete our conversation or individual messages.
I have looked for an update (first thought), but my phone is showing none available.
Welcome to the Community!
I've personally had this happen to me with only one friend and it turned out because he lived in a basement apartment, he didn't have reception most of the time which prevented my messages from being delivered to him! What type of phone are you using?
@Meowmix, feel free to chime in :).
I am using a Q10.
This seems to be an (recent) issue with Blackberry phones after finding this forum and looking online. My issue is exactly in line with the other contributors to this post. see Danco10000 above
The contact is my husband so the issue is not reception. We live in the same house and nothing has changed since the issue started last week.
Looking for a fix.
