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.

Re: Texting issues

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.
