TanyaJK, Are you still having issues with text messaging on your iPhone 4S? From you post, it sounds like it may have been just a provisioning issue that may have resolved itself? An update from you would be appreciated. -T.
old.macdonald, it sounds to me that your number port didn't complete fully. This happens from time to time and usually the symptoms present themselves as you described. I will require more information to fix this issue. I am sending you a PM right now. Please respond when you see it. -T.
Unfortunately I am still having the same issue. I have been trying to text different people with different phones and different carriers to see if there was any pattern but it just doesnt seem to work at all. There isnt an issue with the texts that I send but I'm not receiving them, or if I do, it is hours later. I turned off iMessage and it seemed to shorten the delay but I'm still at least two hours behind. Do you have any other suggestions? I really like this phone but will not keep it if this will always be an issue.
I think one of the big issues which not getting text messages has something to do with google voice although it seems like some of the latest users with complaints say they don't use google voice. To get some organization on this topic lets have a questionaire for any new user posts (and please keep the complaining and threats to return you phone to your self, no one cares).
1. What phone are you using? (This topic is for iphone 4s users)
2. Do you use google voice/have a google number?
3a. For those of you have don't use google voice have you ever had an android phone?
3b. Do you have a google account? (I would check that just to make sure you don't have google voice)
4. For those of you who do have a google voice number are you using two separate numbers or do you have your sprint number integrated with google voice?
5. Are the missing text messages being sent to your google voice number or your sprint number integrated with google voice?
I used to not recieve some text messages but realized that there was some separation between the sprint google voice integration and the iphone 4s. I didn't do enough testing. I enabled my sprint number to be integrated into google voice and am unsure if the missing text messages were sent to my sprint number or my old google voice number. I just disabled the google voice integration with my sprint number and I have had 0 missing texts (althose those missing text from before were in my google voice account/app). So if you fall under this issue, either disable google voice or use the google voice app as your main dialier and it will include all your messages as well.
TanyaJK, I sent you a PM with some additional information. Once you have review this, please reply so I can get this working for you. -T.
