hey all,

i tried searching for an answer to this question but i was not successful..

anways, does anyone know if there is a way we can stop a text message from sending while the "send bar" is completing.

ie. you've written a text message and your sending it to someone only to realize its sending to the wrong person and you want to stop it.

thanks

You could tell the wrong person that you send a wrong message. It doesn't matter to him/her probably.

the new drunk dialing

Does anyone know if there is a way to recall a message you sent the night before? I need to recall some messages after a heavy night of drinking:)

just go into SMS and look for that persons name you suspect you sent to. Once you click on their name, it will show you history, with dates and times that "conversations" started.
Plus the most recently text will show the contact towards the top of the list.

You can try the unorthodox way of going right away to settings put it in airplane mode. Then if I’m not mistaken the message will go to outbox. Just go there and delete it. I say this in theory since a couple of times my messages have failed to send is because no signal and I had to go to outbox to re-send them.

Text messages have no outbox, you're most likely thinking of e-mail.

How does that reverse or recall what has been sent out? That would just be reliving the shame.
