    I've texted a few people around 1-2am and i'm not sure if they got them. I texted one friend of mine the next day and she said she never got anything. I've texted other people around this time and never get a text back, but if I text them any other time of the day I always get a reply. Has anyone ever had this problem with their phone?

    I've never had this problem. It's probably just the service in your area. Maybe a lot of people are sending texts around that time and are clogging up the network

    Such issue cannot possibly exist without widespread consumer complaints.

    So I believe this to be an isolated issue with your phone or maybe even user error.

    Or maybe the parents have placed some sort of parental controls on the phone/user. For example, I think AT&T has something called Smart limits where you can block texts or service during certain days and/or times of day.

    Maybe give at&t a call and see if they can look into it.

    Happens to me quite often in the 1-1:20 a.m. time frame. Never really thought about it too much though.

    Yeah I texted this girl from class that I was having a party at my house soon and invited her, but now I don't know if it sent or not and I don't want to look like a jackass and send the same text again if she already got it, but is just ignoring me.
