XMB Friend or Creating Messaging Problem

1 replies 64 views Edited Jun 10, 2012

Every time I attempt to message someone in the XMB / Freinds , the message just times out (dissapears without me saying YES to "do you want to cancel this message")

Then when I reply to a msg , it wont even let me type 2 words and it backs out with no prompt and without me doing anything thus making the third to fourth word to the reply or message unsuccessful , unfinished and unSENT due to it just quitting by itself , going back to the game or the XMB / Friends List.

I checked system software for the ps3 , and I have the latest , Im on a WIRED connection , game runs fine , internet is fine , Im not able to message anyone without it quitting by itself either instantly or within 20 - 40 seconds.

It is only 1/2 successful @ times , creating 5 msgs to complete one sentence in the "message body" when I used to be able to send just one msg before , I dunno maybe 1 month ago ?

I also went to the internet browser on the XMB , cleared cookies , cache and still have the problem with the XMB / Friends messaging system.

What the hell is going on here ?
