So I've had my S3 for a few weeks now and I've been having trouble not being able to receive calls and texts. I started a new thread because it appears to be a little different than the ones mentioned elsewhere and I have an additional question.
Problem goes like this:
I won't receive any texts for a few hours. No problem yet. I decide to text someone and VOILA! Five or more texts show up at the same time, all timestamped for different times. Also, the senders say that they are calling, but the phone did not ring and there is no indication of a missed call.
My questions: As this seems to be an Android/Jelly Bean issue than is not being resolved, I am not sure I want to trade it out for another Android device if this cant be fixed. Seeing as how I have had it for less than a month, Im thinking of either returning the phone with the service or swapping it with an iphone. Has any one else had any experience in this area and can offer advice?
Thanks in advance for your help,

I am having the same problem. I've had my Samsung Galaxy SIII since September 2012, but it's only been in the past month that I've had this problem. Sporadically, calls will go to VM without ringing and texts will 'save up' and come in later or sometimes, not at all. This is so frustrating and I'm not sure what to do about it.
I called ATT Customer Service to report that my phone didn't always ring. The technician called my phone. It rang. She said that there must not be a problem or else she fixed it. Grrr!
It is interesting to me that this only started recently. So it seems that it must be a network issue. I would love to have ATT read this forum and respond with fixes and/or suggestions.
