Verizon + iPhone 4 = random missing texts??
Has anyone had any problems with texts not going through on Verizon?
Sometimes I'll be texting back and forth with someone, then they'll just randomly stop replying after one of my texts... Giving me the feeling that they didn't get my text... So I'm waiting for them to respond, but they're likely waiting for my text, which [according to my phone] went through.
My suspicion was confirmed twice today. I was sitting in the same room with my sister, and she had a question about something on her phone. I sent her a URL as a text message so she could click it, but she never got it. My phone clearly said it was sent, and her phone did not receive it.
Also, earlier today, I was texting a friend, and then she randomly stopped replying. I talked to her later, asked about the last text I sent, and she had no idea what I was talking about... said she never got that text.
Now I must say, that is annoying and completely unacceptable.
Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a remedy?
Quick equipment info:
Me - iPhone 4 using biteSMS (Verizon)
Sister - Droid Incredible using Handcent (Verizon)
Friend - Droid Vortex using Handcent (Verizon)
Clearly it's not a carrier-to-carrier issue (like AT&T to Verizon, or vice versa, which I've heard of problems in the past). And I don't know if it's a coincidence that they're both using Android, but I don't recall my Handcent on my previous phone giving me any problems.
So I thought I'd post here and see if anyone else has encountered similar problems. It seems to be completely random, because I text people all the time with [seemingly] no problem, but now that I have noticed this, I wonder how many more of my texts have vanished into limbo. It sucks because there's no way at all for me to tell on my end... really really annoying.
Any similar issues with anyone else here?

every once in a while my girlfriend will not receive one of my texts. she has a mytouch 4g on tmobile and i have an iphone with verizon, but i dont think it has ever happened to me when texting a fellow verizon customer. does it still happen to you with the default sms on the iphone?

This is a carrier issue. The phone merely sends the text to the carrier, who in turn is responsible to sending it to the proper recipient.
There have been times where sending across carriers have had these same issues. But the phone merely sends the text up, after that its all up to the carrier.
I get this sometimes with AT&T as well.
But its not the phone.
The amount of material possessions one owns should not qualify them as a successful or just person.
The only worth these items have is the one you give them.

I'm just trying to narrow down where the problem might be... my phone, Verizon, or the Handcent app on Android.
Still very irritated about it...

I've never had this problem with my Verizon iPhone, but had it quit consistently with my AT&T iPhone. It is annoying. From what I understand, it can be your carriers issue, or the recipients carriers issue. There is no "fix" required, it can just happen from time to time. It's unfortunate but nothing is wrong with your phone or anything.
