mine is working now.... But I have been having this issue for the past week. Usually the message goes through on the second or third try, but this time it wasnt working for hours.
I only know that it isnt working when I try to send a message. Who knows how often it has been down without me knowing.
And it really is a pain because when I hit send, I assume that the message has sent and put the phone away...... Only to later discover that it never sent.
Also, I have been recieving really delayed text messages occasionally this week. sometimes a full day late. It is also frustrating and makes me look like an **bleep** for not responding. But again, it is not all the time, and not with everyone.
and I dont think it is my area. My wife is right next to me with the same phone, same plan, and hers has always been working fine.
