    Hi, In your android phone, you can always delete a sent message by clicking on the message and choosing 'Delete message' which deletes the message alone instead of delete the whole thread. But if you want to try stopping the sent message, it is not possible. You cannot stop the sent messages.

    In android phone,
    messeges views as a thread..
    so you can delete it by tapping on a particular massage and choose delete option.
    but if u dont want to save sent messages as we have in symbian platform...
    SORRY..
    this facility is not available in android...yet
    Everytime you have to delete it manually.

    Re: Can we cancel a sent text message in android?

    Hi friend,
    This is not possible to stop a text message sent by user in Android because when a message is sent it follows some rules and regulations defined by TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) . It is possible to delete a message sent to any user after sending but not quiet possible to break the rules.

    Hope the given information is useful..

    Thanks........

    Hello,

    It is not possible as it is like a chemical change and no one can change it as if the message is sent to the person whom you are sending , can only delete it.

    Regards
    Navneet

    Hello,
    Yes you can delete the messages from sent items, but once you send the message you can't stop it ...you can delete message from your device, not from the person who got your message after you sent.
    Thank you

    Re: Can we cancel a sent text message in android?

    Yes Dear..

    It is possible.
    If your message has been save in sent item or in outbox, then you can only delete otherwise not because you can't get a save message.

    You just simply go to your mobile message menu.
    Open Sent item or outbox, if you find any message, go to option and delete msg.
    If you have no.of message there, you can delete by selecting multiple message one after another.

    Thank You..

    I do it all the time.

    If you're quick enough, while message is still sending and you realized you called your gf your ex-gf's name or something stupid like that, follow these easy steps to cancel message from sending:

    1) remain calm
    2)throw phone toward the ground with enough force to dislodge the battery
    3)reboot and hope that the message is not in your outbox

    If done correctly, this method can save you lots of frustration. Hope it helps!!

    -Luke
