    I am in San Antonio, TX and this morning at school my friend (Sprint Customer) said that she had tried to Text me twice this morning. We then tested our phones and saw that she could receive mine but I could not receive hers. Then an AT&T friend of mine sent me a message and I discovered that we can have a conversations just fine.
    Then later, after I tried another failed attempt at messaging the friend mentioned previously, I asked another freind (Yet another sprint customer) to text me and we had the same result. Then when he called me to see if i could receive calls I got his last text and many other texts from other people. The problem now is that I still do not reciece all text messages AND the ones I do get come multiple times (I am currently at 5 and counting).

    It seems that I can receive SMS from AT&T costomers with no problem but not from anyone else. One the forums there is somone with the same problem (

    If you find any solutions please let me know

    I recently switched from Verizon, to Sprint, then to AT&T. I have had this issue on all 3 services, but always coming from Sprint. One of the reasons I left Sprint was that their performance was mediocre at best. One of my friends on Sprint, his texts take anywhere from 5-60 minutes to be delivered to anyone, and sometimes never.

    Are you having issues receiving texts from people on other networks?

    Outage in San Antonio

    I am also in San Antonio and my husband and I (both on iPhones with AT&T) called the problem into AT&T and she said they were having an outage but now it's fine. I'm guessing they got it resolved. Just thought you'd like to know. I'm guessing you aren't having anymore problems?
