Just take the blue pill. I suspect when you have a delay in txt message delivery there an multiplexer, ATM, or other piece of equipment acting up and needs to be reset to restore proper communication.

It happens with all providers from time to time. Better sending an email. Even better calling the person. Best as always is one on one eye contact over a cup of coffee. That don't happen much anymore.

+1 As i can see the advantages of text messaging, i think the overuse is allowing our youth to lose good grace and social skills. You can go a long way with good interpersonal skills, only one way to get those, practice. For some people its more natural, others have to work at it.

I don't know either. I have T-Mobile, my wife and youngest son have Verizon, and sometimes they don't get my texts at all. However, I text with a lot of business contacts, and it seems to work OK.

I have Verizon and emails go to a Hotmail account and then forward to my phone. pretty much instantly I picked up an att phone, and if I got the email at all, it would be way to late. I used this for work to get service orders, so the ATT got returned, buts its your carriers web network is the hold up.
