    Hi Trey,
    A couple of quick questions to help narrow down the cause. Is it all text messages that you can't send or receive or just picture messages? If it's all text messages it could be a problem with provisioning but if it's picture messages that could indicate other issues.

    i was on the phone with sprint last night with this problem..the phone will recieve text but cant send them..they reset the phone..provision it and nothing. i have an airave..they said they think its that device..my wife was able to text me when the phone wasnt in the home. Sprint is supposed to send a tech to check out the airave..

    That's actually a known issue with the airave that comes up from time to time. Do you get an error code?

    There's some evidence it's a firmware issue with the airave and potentially the location the phone was either activated or last had a profile/prl update done. Some potential workarounds are out there though, like this one Airave and Text Messaging Error -97 - Mobile Product Support Forums I haven't tested it personally though.

    You might try updating the profile/prl when you're away from the Airave

    If that indeed is the case perhaps having Sprint re-provision the phone while you are away from the Airave might solve the problem.

    What kind of phone are you using? A lot of sprint phones have a system update that allows you to update the profile (reprovision) manually.

    Mine is doing the exact same thing! I called in to Sprint on Sunday..we ended up reseting the Airave...thought that fixed it but it started doing the same thing again just a little while ago. So I call Sprint again and he tells me to pull the battery out of the S4 and then unplug the Airave. I explained to him that I have NO signal here at home without it and that we will loose the call. So I un plug the Airave, call gets dropped and here I sit...15 min. waiting for the call to come through..nothing! So I plug the Airave back in...battery is still out of the S4...don't have a clue what to do next!
    Live every day like it is your last...because it COULD be!

    It's an issue i've seen with the S3 before so it's not a stretch to imagine the s4 having that problem.
