    I ported my number yesterday. Since then I've tried to send about 8 texts. 6 texts wouldn't leave my iPhone and the two that did never got to the recipient.

    I know texting is using a connectionless protocol and are never guaranteed to get there, but this is a little strange.

    Been having the same problem here... some sms I send seem to never get to the recipient. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. It's driving me crazy.

    I've been having these problems for a while now, I text more than I call so it is not helpful that my texts take 30 minutes to send if at all... hopefully someone comes up with a fix.. quick.

    Same Problem

    i'm having the same problem im sending text messages to people still on AT&T network and they are not receiving all my messages. I do text a lot. and it seems from what ive noticed that its mainly my long long text messages that dont get received. But that just might be because those are the only messages that i end up finding out if they were received or not since i end up asking about it.

    Anyone have any new info on the subject. Fixes, Reasons for problems?

    mine doesnt say error. It actually sends it. I do notice that sometimes it takes longer to send the message. But each and every time it still "sends" the message with no error and then adds it to my text message log

    Anyone with any new info, advise, suggestions. I'm going crazy over this. I'm basically talking to myself and thinking people just dont have time or care to answer me....

    just call customer service and ask for tech, have them reprovision it on the account.

    The Apple store replaced my phone and it has not happened since.
