    Hey ya'll so i was one of the ones that switched over to att from verizon. I got the 32 gig iphone . My question is, has anyone had problems with people getting your text messages? I've had that from a couple people. I dont know if its got something to do with the porting, but its kinda bugging me . Any thoughts?

    How long ago did you port your number to AT&T.
    Sometimes it takes time for everything to go thru.

    You should call up AT&T to make sure everything on their end is setup correctly.
    Are all Texts not going thru at all or just some?
    Sending, receiving or both?

    Did to me. I'm now getting all my messages although some are delayed 2-5 minutes, but mainly from people with Verizon if i'm not in an active conversation. Meaning, if they just sent me a message out of the blue, it would take a while for me to get it. After i reply, i get their messages almost instantaneously as long as they reply quickly

    Who are you not receiving them from? I ported over from Alltel and wasn't getting any from Alltel/Verizon customers, they said at the ATT store that someone came in right before me and had the same problem. They gave me a new SIM card and its worked since then.

    i wasn't recieving from verizon customers. i ported from verizon and only about a day and a half after the port was i not recieving them. i recieved text messages instantly from other att customers except for a picture message that took a whole day to be delivered but i heard that was normal

    I was getting them from ATT too, not Verizon/Alltel. I'd go to an ATT store and see if they'll give you a new SIM card.
