    Randomly (maybe 30% of the time) i cannot send sms out. It will be message failed. It is like that with different apps (messaging, hangout, gosms etx)

    Yes I am experiencing this with sliding SMS. But I just get a failed message and then it sends it right away after that. And that's with att. I have used this app from the very beginning so I'm not sure if its just that app or the phone or whatever else it may be.

    I'm on Verizon and have the same problem. Some days every message would go right through, and other days messages would take forever to send and I would get the failed message. Once they would go through the people I would send them to would get duplicates of the message I only sent once. I was starting to wonder if something was wrong with my default text app, so Ima give the Verizon app a try and see if I have the same problem.

    I have had this same problem on AT&T using hangouts. Seems to happen about 10% of the time for me. Switched from a Nexus 5 to the M8, and it maybe happened 2% of the time with the Nexus.

    I've never had this problem till I got the m8, and I'm coming from a s3. It happens pretty frequently for me though I'm thinking it might be a defect in my phone? Since it doesn't seem to be a problem affecting a lot of people. Should I try to swap my phone out?

    Im on TMO and am having a similar issue AND also not getting texts.
    Sunday my neighbor asked me if i was ignoring him. LOL he sent 4 texts and a call that never got to my phone.
    After we started talking i rebooted my phone and within 5 minutes i had 10 texts show up. 4 of them being his.
    Tuesday morning i sent a few messages to a co-worker and he didnt get them for a few hours, then when he did way out of order.

    But my other question is, doesnt Hangouts treat SMS as data and not a SMS?
    I thought the purpose of hangouts was to use data and not use the SMS texts that count against some plans that have limited number of texts.
    Maybe im wrong.

    I have had a few SMS and MMS issues as well. Sometimes don't send, sometimes don't receive, sometimes send more than once.... Weird.

    Same. Been having some issues with receiving in a timely manner too. I assumed it was the sprint provisioning issues from last week but apparently not.
