    I sent a text. I checked to see if it had been received. It had the words on success line that said status 65536. What is that?

    It means that there's a bug in the texting app. Error messages that are represented in 16 bits run to 65535 (like numbers in 3 digits run to 999). If you add 1 to 65535, in 16 bits, you get 0, because the 1 is in the 17th bit (10000 in hex). An error message of 0 means "no error".

    So someone is using both 16 bits and 32 bits to represent errors in the same app, and that seldom causes good things. There's an error, 65536. But the part of the code that's checking it and giving you the failure message is written to use 16 bits, so it sees error 0 and it says "success". Then the code that handles the rest of the message is written to use 32 bit error messages, sees 65536, and tells you.

    Is it successful or not? Only the developer might know - and you;'ll know if you check to see if the person got your text.

    (And try using a different texting app until that problem is straightened out. You might email the developer [the email address should be at the bottom of the app's Play page] and let him know the model phone it happened on and what version of Android you're running. A developer can't test an app on all phones - even Warren Buffett doesn't carry many phones around.)
