HTC HD7 users running NoDo have been encountering some issues relating to sending text messages, and the correlation seems to point to the NoDo update as the cause. Users of the HD7 on various different carriers (including Bell, T-Mobile, O2, and Telus) have been reporting the SMS issues on an XDA-Developers thread:

…before the NoDo update I never had a problem with it, but ever since then, I keep
getting a lot of error messages for text messages saying the message wasn’t sent.

Frustration erupts when text messages aren't sent

I too have been encountering this problem, and it has been happening quite frequently in the last few weeks, like at least once a day. In my case, pressing the “Try Again” button usually doesn’t even work, and the message continues to not send.

Some other HD7 users on the thread suggested turning off 3G and hypothesised that a low 3G signal could be preventing the text messages from being sent. Another forum member suggested that you should wait on the text message screen after pressing send, because returning to the homescreen too quickly can interrupt the sending process. I’ve tested the second theory and concluded that leaving the text messaging screen as soon as you click send has no impact on if the text message sends or fails.

If you’re having this problem too, tell us about it in the comments. Include your carrier, device, and if you’re running NoDo or pre-NoDo.
