anyone having an issue with Text Messages? these are mine

-Not receiving text messages
-Not sending messages

I have to do a hard reset to send or receive messages every 3 or 4 hours.

this an ios8 issue? or a hardware problem?

getting pretty pissed off now, i can miss some important texts coming through and i wouldn't notice until i actually hard reset the phone.

any fixes? i did the reset network preferences and all that. Im on ATT and i never had an issue with messaging until i switched from iPhone 5 to iPhone 6

I haven't seen any issues like that on my 6 or my wife's.

Are you on 8.0.1? Does being on wifi or cellular have any effect?

Let us know how it goes.

Restore as new. Don't use backup. If it still happens they will replace it. If you haven't restored as new, they will have you do it there.

but restoring as new means I can not get all of my apps, pics, contacts and such. There has to be another way.

For testing purposes you need to restore as new. Your backup could be corrupt. If the issue happens with restore as new, you have hardware issues.
