I have had it where messgaes just stop sending all together. I would get like 6-8 back with the unable to send the Messages with the Red Symbol. I then have to hard reset my phone and go through the process of resending all of them. It was happenign with iMessage and normal Text Messages. I never had this issue with my other Iphone 4 with Verizon, so I know it is Sprints network that is no good
Thank you for the help. I am able to access the internet fine. I am having the issue with anyone I text regardless of phone or carrier. I just used his phone to get an idea of the delay. It actually doesn't show iMessage when I text him, he is still on the old operating system. In fact, the one person I have used iMessage with is the only one I didn't have an issue with. Just yesterday, my friend who has an htc sent me a text at 3:00 and I received it this morning at about 9:00 am. I'll still try shutting off the iMessage but I'm just concerned that it may not be the solution since I have the issue with everyone.
I am sorry that you are having problems with receiving text from other people. From what I understand, you say your boyfriend has an iPhone as well and when you send from iPhone to iPhone, it is sent as an iMessage. iMessage does use data, so are you getting a good data signal and are you able to access the web on your device? You may also want to try and disable iMessage and retry to have a message sent from him to you.
I just recently purchased the new iphone 4s and am having serious issues with receiving text messages. It seems that what I send is received fine but I do not receive the response until the other person sends a second message. My boyfriend has an iphone and I was texting myself from his phone - I am always one message behind whatever is sent, sometimes I get messages the next day. Is anyone else experiencing this? Any suggesstions on how to fix this?
