Yes I am still having the problem.  It is mainly with another Sprint customer and they have the IPhone.

Re: Texting Problems

have them double check how they have your number listed on their phone..check yours as well and make sure it has the area code and number listed and not just the number..there have been some issues lately with numbers losing area codes for some reason. if that doesnt work then both of you should delete each other out of your contacts and delete all your texts back and forth AND clear your call history in case their number is in there also...then both of you re add your numbers and try again.

Re: Texting Problems

I am having the same problem for the last 3 weeks.  Called Sprint a bunch of times, took phone in to repair, switched phones. To no avail.

Let me know if anyone canfix this.

Re: Texting Problems

Same thing has been happening to me with a few people.  I keep on contacting Sprint, they tell me my line is fine.  That its probably other person. The other person calls Sprint and they tell them the same thing.  They kept asking us both if we have each other blocked everytime sand this is getting ridiculous.  My contract is over at the end of the month and I'm thinking of switching because they haven't been helpful at all.

Ye I am. Keep.calling in and Sprint and they are not being helpful.  Keep telling me that it is the other persons line and mine is fine.  Then they tell the other person the same thing.  This has been on for weeks and is very frustrating.  My contract, which consists od 3 lines is up at the end of the month.  Thinking od switching because the lack of getting this fixed on Sprints part.

Re: Texting Problems

Are any of you using Google Voice????

If so I would un-associate it with your phone, uninstall that horrible spying app, and then try to text the people you can't exchange messages with.

I bet they will now work, same thing happened to me last month it was 100% google voice.

Re: Texting Problems

I don't used the Google Voice app but I do have a Google Voice account and have the texts come to my phone.  Do I just need to unassociate the Google Voice to my phone?

Journeyman

Re: Texting Problems

Yes, I can almost guarantee you its Google Voice.

Unassociate your phone, reboot it and try to text the person who isn't recieving your texts.  I bet it works.

Re: Texting Problems

I had this same problem for the last month.. you can read my post above for more info.  I finally realized that when I disconnected google voice from my sprint account the problems with delayed texts stopped.  I am very disappointed in this because I love google voice and used it almost daily for the last year.  I guess something went wrong in the last couple weeks.  I might try it again in a month or so, but using google voice wasn't worth the delayed text problems.

Re: Texting Problems

I'm having the same trouble. I recently had my EVO 4G replaced with an EVO 3D. Since then I've been getting text messages with timestamps with tomorrow's date. A hard reset did not clear it up. My dad and brother each have a iPhone 4s, they do not have that issue at all. What is up with my phone?
