    This is on the "All Messages" screen when I'm texting and only occurs for one particular person. It's in gray (no color) and has been showing for a couple weeks now, I'm not sure if it coincided with the FROYO update or not.

    I can still send and receive texts from this person but the exclamation point/triangle are always showing on the right side just above the time stamp of the last text.

    Any ideas?

    As documented, it signifies an SMS that the phone was unable to send.

    Unable to send. Maybe due to an unknown prefix. Example: *67 if your trying to block your number from the recipient. And viceversa.

    Well, that's mighty interesting because for all these messages over all this time I've been able to reply to this party and the other party has also replied to my texts.

    What are the other possibilities? Does it mean that at SOME point in the past a text to this person couldn't be sent? If that's the case, how can I get rid of this OLD error so it doesn't keep showing? I've reset by removing the battery several times and it makes no difference.

    There may have been a text in the past that never sent. Scroll through your list of text messages with this person and see if any individual message has the icon on it.

    You were absolutely correct it was bugging me since I got the phone 2 weeks ago..

    Thank you

    so like john said scroll down in the contacts thread with the triangle and you will see one or more messages that never got sent.

    I Came from a Blackberry 9700 AT&T
    I never had messages not go thru when i had service on the blackberry and i feel the blackberry gets better service and is definitely louder in every way.
    This is my first post I searched for the triangle thing. it brought me to sprint. Hope that doesn't count as trolling. I never thought I would leave blackberry but i had lots of problems with my 9700. the 9000 was a better phone IMHO.

    Thought about torch but the keyboard is like palm pre plus. just didn't seem like the almighty blackberry keyboard. ATT gave me a super early upgrade and gave me the phone for $159.00 so i couldn't say no.

    If the triangle means other things please post.

    thanks

    Oh man, thanks a million for the scrolling/unsent message advice; that triangle's been driving me nuts for weeks now.

    What if i have thousands of messages with a persons an done of them is not sent (so the red triangle with the excalation amrk appears in the conversation list with that person). How can I find that message? Is there an app on market for that ? Because a visual insepction of all those messages is almost impossible. And I don't want to delete all the conversation with that person....

    Has anyone found a way to find the text that wasn't send from a conversation consisting of thousands of messages?

    I found the offending MMS messages at the very top of the list.
    It appears the app put them there, since they were out of thread order.
    This was on a Galaxy Note 4.

    I've had the irritating yellow symbol ( ⚠) in 3 of my text convos since upgrading to my Note 5 January 17th. I've checked & none of the 3 have unsent texts. Is there another cause? I really don't want to delete the message threads, but I also really don't like seeing the signs glaring at me.. Haha!! I appreciate any help!!

    Did you use bad words in your text. Shame!

    I had this happen today with text from a person I communicate with on a daily basis... An old text from days ago was now also marked with another gray triangle. When I resent the old one (old news of course), both triangles went away. This is really annoying and of absolutely no use without an explanation and/or notification within a few minutes that a text did not go through. Need either to get rid of it or fix.... Doing a CYA notification way after the fact is useless....
