I have noticed over the last two years that mine also do not always go nor do people I know always get my text. I thought that it was that my partner was on AT&T but then my friend who is on Verizon told me they didn't get several text and now my sister in law says she has sent me lots of text that I have not gotten.
Let's get to the bottom of this issue tomr69! What model phone do you have? Do you receive any error messages when the texts don't go thru? Make sure to clear out your SMS threads often as low memory can contribute to delays or missed text messages.
