    Smile Test message sometimes says "Draft"

    Galaxy S3

    Sometimes when I text a message and I hit send....it will say draft...it looks like it was sent....but there are red letters saying draft...just sometimes and I dont know why. So when I see "draft" I hit send again...and it sends a blank "bubble". I cant find any settings or even a draft folder...so what does this mean?

    Thanks guys!!

    It becomes a draft until the message goes through. Most likely you don't have a good signal and its taking a while to send the message, so its being saved.
    There's no dedicated draft folder.. but if you start typing a message to someone and then back out of the message before sending it... it becomes saved as a draft... it gets stored under the recipients name.. so you can open up the conversation at a later time and whatever you started typing previously should still be there.

    To delete the draft.. erase whatever text that you started typing and the draft message will be removed.

    So when the message is saved as a draft is it still trying to send during that time? Or is it just being saved and not sending? Thanks.

    I have had this happen and found out the when I hit the back softkey I sometime hit the period (.) which caused it to show draft. I go back and delete the period in the field and it goes away.

    I think it tried to send it until the program times out. After that it might just sit and wait for you to try to resend it, but the time it tries to send seems to be unpredictable.

    Alrght, thanks for letting me know. I have yet to find a resend option on the phone. So I just end up retyping it again and hoping it goes thru at least once if not twice, lol.

    There should be an exclamation mark sign that you can press. It should allow you to resend it without retyping it all. If you don't directly press the sign though, it doesn't work, and it's kinda small.
