Receiving some but not all text messages

I have a Revolution and recently have been made aware by some angry friends that I have "ignored" their messages.  People will get my texts but I am not getting all of my messages from others.  I will get maybe two messages in a thread of 5 messages coming from one person. It is so odd.  I have tried taking out my battery, restarting etc...has this happened to anyone else? I obviously make phone calls a lot but I also communicate a lot via text and had no idea this was happening until I got yelled at twice about it. Nobody can figure out what is wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

Let's get this figured out! Where are you located (zip code)? When did the problem begin? Are you using a 3rd party messaging application? Have you recently downloaded any new applications? I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Re: Receiving some but not all text messages

I have the exact same issues with my Revolution as well. My phone picks and chooses when it wants to receive or send texts. I am asked almost daily at this point why I didn't write back in the text. My zip is 84121, but it happens in 84119 too. I do not use 3rd party apps, in fact I don't have many apps downloaded because I know sometimes they can have a glitch that will effect my phone. My manager at work and family send text which I miss, it's important that we get this issue resolved.

Thank you for your help.
