text messages take forever to send!

Got the phone about four days ago and my text messages are taking hours to send and receive. Phone calls work perfectly fine

Re: text messages take forever to send!
Customer Support


This is very strange behavior for any phone connected to our network, but we'll help get them sending and receiving much quicker! Which make/model phone do you have and what zip code are you in? Also, have you tried turning the phone off for at least 1 minute? Let us know and we'll be happy to continue trouble shooting!
