    Anyone else noticing this today, NYC area?

    I get a text message at, for example, 5:15 with a timestamp of 5:08. Verified about 7-10 min delay as I also have a verizon phone.

    That's not an exclusive issue with ATT. I was on Sprint and had plenty of text message delays. Wait 30 minutes - see if it's still an "issue". Sometimes things happen. A tower doesn't relay, the network is congested. The network isn't infallible.

    And Times Square isn't a litmus test for whether or not you should get a signal. If anything, it's the opposite. More people/phones all connecting to the box in a limited area?

    Still getting texts with about 10-20 min delay. Full 3G service in my office.

    Could this have anything to do with modified carrier file (my phone has mms/tethering/vmm)

    Just spoke w/ ATT.

    Been known issue (receiving sms 10-20 mins late) for about 72 hours.

    Should be resolved today.
