    Hi everyone!
    So I picked up the new iPhone 4S on Verizon and I love it. Only problem is, I'm randomly not receiving certain text messages. I'll be having a conversation and it'll stop for hours on end because I "never received a reply", when in fact a response was sent. Anyone have an suggestions on what I can do?

    Thanks a lot!

    I'm texting a person who has an iPhone 4, still on iOS4.x. I think iMessage would help in this situation, rather than hurt.

    Oh I think you mean MY iMessage is bothering. I was trying to say that if she upgraded to iOS 5, using iMessage would help. Hope that clears any confusion.

    Yes. It most likely would help resolve the issue.

    Anyway, besides iPhone to iPhone messaging, I don't want this problem to persist. Anyone else experience this problem? I'm gonna head over to a Verizon store today to get it checked out.

    the only problem i had was not being able to receive messages right after my phone was activated, but that was fixed just by me making a phone call haha so idk how to fix your problem.

    I think I just figured out the problem: Emoji Smilies. I can receive them without a problem, but add a lot of text and a few of those smilies and, for whatever reason, the message wont go through. So weird. Anyone have any idea why it's doing this?

    Edit: It's ATT to Verizon (me) btw.
