Can't send text to specific contact, "error 3"

Recommended Posts

Randomly yesterday, I get error messages when trying to send an SMS to a certain contact. They have an iPhone, I have an HTC 10. It was working fine, in the middle of a conversation, and suddenly I now get "Can't send message with Sprint, error 3" every time.

 

However, I am able to send MMS messages, either pictures or in part of a group text.

 

Tech support has a ticket going but does anyone have any ideas? I've done so many profile and PRL updates already as per their troubleshooting suggestions.

I had this texting my mom once.  If I remember correctly, I did a reboot, PRL update, network services update, and a few airplane mode cycles.  Then it started working again.

I deleted the contact then scrtn, restart and added contact again fixed it for me a while back.

    • For those asking about qam. Does everyone for that cell sector use 256 qam? (in range of or phone support) If not your the only one going to see the 33% increase. So your old speedtest x 1.33. Examples 1Mbps to 1.33 Mbps or 5Mbps goes to 6.5 Mbps. Another would be 20 Mbps to 26 Mbps all within margin of error with speed test. That gain starts to go away fast as people use more data. Where qam even massive mimo help is large events. Otherwise you have people on the fringe with weak signal weaking their effectiveness.
    • This is exactly what I am going to be doing. I have 2 galaxy S-7's both with deteriorating batteries. When the S-10 hits the shelves, surely the S-9 will go on sale somewhere.  I either get  a new S-9 at a good discounted price, or I get one on Swappa, or maybe buy the new "A" series Samsung phone.   No S-10 for me.  If the S-7's had HPUE, I would probably just get new batteries in the S-7's.
    • Frankly I think what cannibalizes their high end sales is picking up last year's model on Swappa or even used on a carrier's site. We'll see how much of a value price point the S10e comes in at, but I'm guessing at least $700, so not much of a mid range value. LG could really offer an attractive alternative, but they price their flagships just as high as Samsung, but then drop in value even more months down the road.
    • Interestingly Sprint is using the 5x5 G-block as the PCC and 10x10 B-block as the SCC for carrier aggregation here in Boston (Chestnut Hill). I can't complain though because the download speeds are insane. I never thought I'd see the day I'd get speeds like these on Band 25. Edit: I should add that this was taken indoors.
