Verizon is one of the best services you can get out there, but even the slightest of inconveniences or any error messages will cause you to have trouble with your experience that you don’t want.
So, you will need to ensure that you are aware of any problems that might be coming your way. If you are seeing a gray triangle with an exclamation point on your text message threads, here are a few things that you must know about it and how you can get rid of it.
Gray Triangle With Exclamation Point Text Message: What Does It Mean?
A gray triangle with exclamation point on your text messages threads means that one or more than one message was unsent due to some reason. You will need to scroll up and find out that message that might not be sent due to some reason. There are many reasons that a particular message has not being sent, like not having the right connection, phone getting powered off or anything else like that. You will either need to delete that message from the thread, or just resent it to ensure that you get rid of that exclamation mark effectively.
You can choose to delete it and that would make sense, but if you are unable to resend the message and there are constant errors with the messages being sent, here are a few things you would need to check.
Check Signal Coverage
You will need to ensure that you have the right signal coverage for your messages to be sent over the network and not just get stuck in your phone. Once you have the right coverage, try sending the message again and it should be sent without any issues at all. You might also need to restart your phone in order to make sure that your phone is able to send those text messages over the network.
Check SMS Settings
Now, there are SMS settings that you need to take care of. Verizon manages these settings on its own and you will not have to get yourself into all those tedious settings that need precision. But there are chances that these settings can be messed up if you even alter with a single digit on the settings or have any third-party application that might need access to SMS settings.
So, you will need to get rid of any such applications to begin with. After you have uninstalled the application, reset the SMS settings to default and make sure that you select the automatic network selection feature as well. Moving forward, just restart your phone and it will be enough to cover up any problems that you might be having on the phone with text messages.
If you are done with all of the steps above and it is still not working out for you, you will need to contact Verizon. Your package might be out, there can be some issues with your account or anything else of that sort. Whatever the issue might be, the Verizon support department will be able to fix it for you in no time at all.
