Can you tell me why I often have to take my battery and card out and then put them back in so that my text messages will send?
Also after I do that I get old messages and some I haven't seen before.

could be a sim card issue. If the sms messaging centre information is not being retained by the sim card the phone won't send or receive sms messages. pulling the battery will refresh the info on the sim when the phone connects back up to the network.

What kind of phone do you have? If we are talking about the Galaxy Ace is a known issue with the device... but there is a workaround for your texts not to fail... let us know please...
