email messages not coming in -- what up?

This happens every so often. I turn on my BlackBerry and no emails come in. Usually after several hours they resume. But I'm wondering what is the cause? Is there anything I can do? Is this a Verizon hairball in the system? Does anyone else have this problem?

You should call into customer service there are different things that can cause a delay of text messages and we have several ways to help but you have to call in to have them preformed on your phone.

my text messages have been delayed for a while now.. it does not do it all the time. but it can be a pain when your texting someone back and forth and suddenly it takes up to ten minutes to receive the txt message.... it cant be the blackberry, cuz i had a dare and had the same problem, ive called verizon and said it isnt the network.. i dunno, hopefully it will stop one day. maybe the network is near capacity around my area... who knows...

I have the same issue going on. My tower indicator said "OFF" yesterday for a period of time and have not been able to receive email. I have one phone, how am I to get this fixed if I can't use a landline to call customer service? Thoughts? I have tried on my phone to reestablish my email, but it won't connect to the internet...

VZW doesn't handle your emails. Your email services are directly provided by RIM. Yes, there are several things you can try. Doing a battery pull is your first step. Then I would recommend resending your service books. You can do this directly from your device by clicking on your Email Settings icon and logging in with your @vzw.blackberry.net username/password and clicking on the Help link where you can find the option to resend your service books. Or, if you prefer, you can use this link directly from a PC: https://bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=vzw

 

Those are two of the simplest things you can do when you're having email problems and other general phone problems.
