    Hi

    A friend of mine has a phone (not iphone) on at&t's service. A lot of the time when he sends text messages, they are delayed. Sometimes it is several hours before I get his messages (I currently have Verizon). It is just his phone, or is it a thing with AT&T. This will be a major factor in my deciding to get an iPhone.

    Thank You!

    John

    I think it has to do with verizon, that would happen all the time when I had my razr with verizon.

    mine does the exact same thing. even to my firends who have att they still get delayed. It only seems to be after around 9 or 10 pm for me its pretty strange. I dont think its the phone though i think it has somethin to do with att.:confused:

    I really wouldn't make a decision from two people. I have had no problems with my texting, maybe the most of a 10 minute delay? But usually everything is perfect. I love my iPhone in every way.

    Last night i was out with my girlfriend as well as a few other friends, I wanted to say something in private to my girlfriend so I sent her a text (iPhone 3G to iPhone) and she received it before I even got my phone back in my pocket.
