I am so disappointed that Sprint didn't even have the decency to apologize for this major inconvenience or even warn us in advanced before we all ripped our heads off thining we broke our phones! I've had more problems with TMobile, true, but if the Sprint service is gonna be like this, I'm switching back to TMobile >_> There better be some sort of apology credit!
Lol I think everyone should calm down, nothing works perfectly all the time, at least we know it will be back soon. For now you can use AIM to text folks. I'm glad someone posted this so I know its not just my phone . If someone from Sprint happens to look at this I'd appreciate it if I could finally get 4G sometime in Oklahoma city for gods sake.
There was a nationwide SMS issue overnight.
In otherwords, it should be working now.
Aside from the outage which caused the "Msg 2111" issue most people in this thread were experiencing, there are still issues with cross-carrier texting which have not been resolved or adequately addressed.
I recently purchased a Samsung Focus and switched carriers to AT&T. My girlfriend remained with Sprint, using the Samsung Upstage. Consistently for the past two weeks, I have not been receiving her texts, and she is not receiving any sort of lack-of-delivery notice. We have discovered that I will receive a text from her if she replies to my message, but not if she tries to send me a new message. She is able to receive all the texts I send to her, though she is unable to scroll to off-screen text when I send her picture mail (but I suspect that may be an issue with the Upstage).
There have been complaints about cross-carrier texting on these forums since at least 2008, but I have yet to discover a proper solution. Most of the speculation seems to be that some messages are getting lost within Nextel servers and not reaching their intended recipients. If anyone has a definitive solution, or could point me in the right direction, I would certainly appreciate it.
