Texting issues
Is anyone else having a problem either sending or receiving text messages from any carriers other than AT&T?  I don't seem to be receiving text messages from verizon customers?

It's common problem with Verizon if someone sends you SMS larger then 160 characters... as reported by many users.

thanks for the input but the messages are rather small.  Just a simple "good morning" is not even coming through

Others have had this issue as well. It always ends with the same scenerio. Verizon tells you it;s att's fault. and Att tells you it's Verizon's fault.  But no one ever wants to trouble shoot the problem.

Most of my friends have Verizon and I get there message right away, not sure if this just happens in certain markets but there is no issue here in the Omaha (Thats in Nebraska) area.
