More information please.

-What phone does she have?
-Does she not only get your message when you text from a certain location? (like Home or Work).
-Does she not only get your message when She is in a certain location? (like Home or Work).
-Are the messages regular text message or are they MMS?
-When texting from various locations, whats your reception generally like, as well has her reception?

Thanks for the speedy reply...
1-EnV 3
2-It happens everywhere
3-So far it has happened at a theme park and home
4-Regular texts
5-My reception varies from 3 to 5 bars where I generally go...4 bars at home and she gets 1-4 bars...one bar should be fine shouldn't it? I'm talking to her on the phone (not texting) right now and she has one bar, i thought texts needed less signal than calls...

A quick Google search does show that this is happening to a lot users and the issue is actually going to be with your GF phone rather than your iPhone. Has she tried calling Tech Support?

I forgot to ask before, are you getting her messages?

Hi,

I doubt its a hardware issue.

Issues like yours tend to lead back to Network failures !

I'm sorry, but it has to be said, the door is wide open. Maybe she's just not into you anymore.

Check and see if your iPhone is adding +1 in front of the number. Try removing it and see if the other person gets the text. I had this problem when I was with Verizon and as soon as I removed the +1 from all numbers text went through fine.
