winnn,

I know how important it is to be able to stay in touch with friends and family, and would like to help get your text messages working again.

I would like to provide two great troubleshooting links that will assist you with resolving the texting issue:

iOS: Troubleshooting Messages

Calls and connection issues

Please let me know how this works out for you.

Thanks,

Sounds like a Verizon problem. Call *611 and tell them the problem that you have.

I have had Verizon for 4 years now. And it seems that more and more frequently SMS fails - especially 2010. And I got an iPhone late last year so I've had Android till then - so it isn't a phone problem, it's a Verizon network problem. You have millions of people sending trillions of SMS on an ancient wireless system - what do you expect?

This is why I like iMessage so much. 1. It ALWAYS works 2. It's near instant. 3. It's free using my data (something I'm already paying for).
