    strange, try calling your carrier.

    Never experienced this myself, beside from new years eve..

    You've had this issue for days / weeks?

    yes, i have had this issue since i got my blackberry. which is around 2 or 3 months ago and it is really starting to make me mad. suncom says they cant do anything and that its not their fault and they tell me that its verizon that has problems receiving foreign messages. so i have no idea what to do.

    ok, lets try to narrow it down a bit..

    suncom to suncom , works fine.
    suncom to verzion, takes hours.

    What about.
    Suncom to oher carriers?
    version to suncom?

    Are your friends experiencing same problems when they sent to other carriers or other suncom users?

    maybe verzion downprioritize suncom SMS traffic if their servers are already working at full capacity?

    SunCom has been having problems for months with customers sending text messaging to other people outside the Suncom network. The messages can take more than an hour to get by others, and sometimes the messages never get through. Supposedly SunCom sent an internal memo out on January 14th, 2008 that said that improvements have been made and the text messages should go out more quickly. I'd love to get a copy of this internal memo. If anyone knows how to get a copy of this memo please post it.
