The transaction is shown in my wallet with a blockcode. But when I clicked to go to etherscan.io, it said the transaction cannot be located. I searched with my address for all transactions, the custom token transfer is not in my list of transaction. Only the initial custom contract creation is.

In my wallet custom contract, I successfully queried the balanceOf the recipient using his address.

But he still cannot see the token.

Note that I have already made sure he is watching my custom token from his wallet. Reference: Ethereum - use your coin

  • Could you post your address and the block number you are in the network?

The Ropsten testnet should be used with caution.

From the https://testnet.etherscan.io/ page:

Announcement: There are currently at least 2 forks of the Ropsten network, so depending on which fork you are connected to there might be a mismatch of block data and transactions. Once the new TESTNET has been decided by the community and made public, "testnet.etherscan.io" will move over to the new testnet chain

This will likely be due to the recent spam attacks. I'm unsure how to go about checking which fork you're on.
