Why am I receiving texts late?

It just started today, but my phone is receiving texts 4 hours late, or later. I was wondering if anyone has any idea as to why? I was wondering maybe if the cell towers in my area are down? My location is 66801.

People come in pretty often with a Rumor Reflex. Its a very common issue with the device. Try power cycling the phone once a day. It usually keeps the issue away. Its some odd software glitch.

Explain power cycling?

Power cycling, power the phone off then back on.

Done that, multiple times, my phone still is being weird.

Like I mentioned. Its going to be a reoccurring issue with that phone. All the LG rumors do it.

Halliemae,

   Thanks for reaching out. That would be extremely frustrating. I'd like to take a closer look into this. Please send your 2 closest cross streets. This will allow me to view the network and its performance in your area.

Duane, I looked at the nearest cell towers and it's telling me that the sprint coverage is fine here. I think it's just my phone.

As was stated by another poster here, this is not an unknown problem with the Rumor Reflex.  It occurs whenever it occurs.  I am no longer surprised by texts appearing a day or more later than when they were sent.  And then I get texts that appear to arrive shortly after being sent.  No rhyme, no reason.

I actually had the opportunity to speak to an LG rep over at a Verizon store this past summer.  I gave him the 411 on what I was experiencing and what I saw being reported here.  Clueless pretty much sums up his response.

I got a message the other day that said they were gonna be fixing somethings with sprint.
