What wallet did you use to send the transaction? If the transaction was made from Bitcoin Core, you can use "replace by fee" to send a proper fee to unstuck it. I've never needed to do that. There's also the option of running -zapwallettxes (put -zapwallettxes in front of the bitcoin executable path in a direct access if you are using windows, which I hope you arent) then this would drop the tx and give your money back.

Additionally you can reach for some miner to mine it for you.

If you are not using Bitcoin Core then I cannot help you with that, you will need to contact support of whatever wallet you are using.

Hi Cellard,

Yes i am using Bitcoin Core wallet and yes i am running windows (i am actually a Linux guys but ran it on windows for some reason). Do you know the exact syntax as i believe i already ran this. (https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/45988/how-do-you-apply-zapwallettxes-on-windows)

Also in regards to the network exentually dropping this due to the low tx fees will this be refunded to my wallet or would the coins be gone forever?

Any ideas guys?

Jeff

His transaction is not Opt-in RBF, so I believe a simple RBF cannot be done
-zapwallettxes only removes/drops unconfirmed tx in his mempool
and once it's broadcasted to other nodes, he can only wait for it to get confirmed or dropped
but the chance for it to get dropped completely is slim to none, my stuck txs still out there unconfirmed for 1 month now

Also in regards to the network exentually dropping this due to the low tx fees will this be refunded to my wallet or would the coins be gone forever?
gone forever... nope, soon or later it will either get confirmed or dropped (return to its state of unspent)
you can attempt double spent with higher tx fee or do CPFP method to speed it up
if 39ETDdxZ is your own address, you can do CPFP yourself otherwise the owner that address may do it

Such experiences really hurts because the effort and the money you spent or invest in bitcoins is never a joke.  So to think that you have made a mistake with your wallet really hurts.  I guess you have to contact the admin of your wallet to settle all the errors being made so that they will return it to you..

I could help you with Bitcoin Core but not with Mycellium... you would need to see if there is any way to replace your fee with an higher fee, or somehow wipe the transaction out similar to what Core can do with zapwallettrx but I doubt it... quoting achow101, Mycellium is listed as a wallet that doesn't have RBF:


Quote
Wallets that do not allow you to or ones that I don't know how to make Full RBF transactions

Not all wallets support the creation of Full RBF transactions. Many wallets do not allow clearing all unconfirmed transactions to allow for making Full RBF transactions. The following is a list of wallet software which do not support Full RBF transactions. If a wallet on this list does support FullRBF transactions, please let me know and provide instructions for that so I can add it above.

    Blockchain.info and web wallets in general
    Electrum (supports Opt-in RBF, but not Full RBF)
    Mycelium
    MultiBit Classic
    Bitcoin Wallet for Android
    Breadwallet
    Copay

Did you manually select a fee for your transaction or Mycellium choose it automatically? Afaik a transaction cannot be stuck infinitely so if you can't do nothing about it, just wait and it will appear again in your wallet. Or you can try to contact some miner service to mine it for you I guess (never used this method),
