I just upgraded to the new Iphone 4S this past Thursday October 20. Since then, I have been having problems with my text messages. It is very intermittent. I go from having a back and forth conversation to not receiving a text for 2 hours. In that meantime, I have full bars. I contacted a Sprint technician and they refreshed my signal/network or whatever they did and it still didn't fix the problem. I am down in Champaign, IL (Zip: 61820). Is anyone else having this problem?
I am showing:
There are no Open Events for ZipCode 61820 in the last 7 days
So, although it may be network related, I'm not showing any outage at your zip code. If I could ask a few question to get more information, I'm sure we can get it fixed. Did you port your phone number in from another carrier recently? Are you using your service near an 'airave'? (if you don't know what that is, please disregard) Does this problem happen with any phone you try to text, or just one particular number? If you want to private message me, I would be happy to take a look and try to figure out why...I can trace your text messages and find out who 'dropped the ball' so to speak.
I did not port my number from another carrier, I upgraded from my previous phone. I am not using it near an airave. It happens to just about all the phones. The problem is when I try to receive a response from people. They will receive my text and proceed to respond to my text, but I do not receive their response text. It's not even delayed, I just don't get the text.
Whether it's a "reply" or a "new message," I am not receiving text messages. As I said before, it is very intermittent. I can be having a back and forth convo one second, and the next thing I know, I don't receive a text for 2 hours. That is what I have been experiencing the past 2 days since I upgraded my phone.
I have been on the phone with Sprint three times now with the same problem on my Blackberry. The last time I called I simultaneously posted a facebook status to see who else was having problems with their Sprint messaging. By the time I was off the phone with Sprint, who did not fix the problem, I had 8 comments from friends who were experiencing the same issues. Re-setting my phone and pulling the battery is not helping me which is the help I or my friends have gotten each time we've called. Sprint you have a much bigger problem. The only way I see to fix this problem is to switch to Verizon......after being with Sprint for 10+ years.
Here's a bump to this topic.. My wife's iphone 4s is extremely slow at receiving text messages. She replies hours late and says she doesn't receive some at all... I'm located in Miami, Florida and both phones are Sprint. My phone (Evo) doesn't have any problems texting others and works properly on "real time". Any ideas?
I've been on the phone 2 hours now with sprint. The first 49 minutes the call was left on hold. I am not receiving texts but my friends are able to receive the ones I send to them.
I've done the ##update# like 15 times already, shut of WIFI, shut off the **** thing so many times I lost count!
WHAT IS HAPPENING!!?
I'm dealing with the same issue of not receiving text messages on my Iphone 4s. Everybody is getting my messages but I am only intermittently receiving messages back from those recipients. I was on the phone with Sprint about a week ago and they supposedly found the problem and fixed it. They seemed to work for awhile, but now it's back to me not getting text messages from people with carriers other than Sprint. Extremely frustrating when you're trying to make plans or communicate. They are working on it again...I have spent more time on the phone with Sprint dealing with issues than I care to think about.
