    Default Verizon Galaxy S3: Can only send text message once every few hours

    Hi Everybody,

    This is my first time posting on here, but I absolutely cannot find anybody with this exact problem after searching the forums.

    So, a couple of weeks ago, I started having trouble sending SMS messages. I don't have any trouble receiving them and I can send MMS messages just fine. I can also make and receive calls without problem. The strange part is that if I leave the phone alone for a little while, I can send one SMS message successfully, then I've got to wait for another hour or more before I can send another one.

    I am on a Samsung Galaxy S3 (SIII) with Verizon. I have Cyanogenmod 11 on here and I will list the version and other details below. I have had it rooted with CM for months now with no issue. I believe I may have done a CM update at some point that could be related, but I'm not sure.

    Model: SCH-I535
    Android Version: 4.4.2
    Baseband version: I535VRBMF1
    CM Version: 11-20140210-SNAPSHOT-M3-d2vzw

    Hey googlematt,

    I am having this same exact issue. It started occuring yesterday morning and it is driving me insane. I haven't been able to find any sort of solution and have even tried to factory reset my phone and flash another ROM but it didn't seem to make any difference. I was on the latest CM nightly and now I am on the latest OMNI nightly and I cannot seem to figure out what happened.

    I am experiencing the same exact symptoms on my SIII. It is very interesting that this seems to be happening to everyone right around the same time. I first noticed the issue two days ago yet I've had the same ROM on my phone for almost a year now. I will update if I find a fix for it, but the issue seems a bit larger than a simple software update... :-(

    Yeah, I don't know what to tell ya. I've been using google voice as my alternative, so there is a way to get around it...just from a different phone number :P

    Edit: Also, you can use Voice+ to make other apps (Hangouts) use your Google Voice #

    So this is apparently a larger issue then I initially realized. This issue is known and is affecting most AOSP roms. A fix has been proposed (although I haven't yet tried it ) over at XDA:
    [ROM][CM11.x]mastamoon's unofficial cm11.x - Page 79 - xda-developers

    See PerCompLLC's post for the guide. It's not a trivial fix, but according to most they are having success with it.

    Good luck everyone.

    Looks like I'm locked with Verizon. I really like what I'm seeing with Cyanogenmod, should I be considering an alternative AOSP aftermarket project? Or, is there one?

    How successful can Cyanogenmod and Verizon be together? Recommendations?
