Do you have episodes where texts don’t reach their targets?

Every few months I send a few texts from my ATT iPhone X that appear not to be read. Does this happen to you?

I had one just the other day. Contacted a plumber. He said he could come by and asked me to text me the address. I immediately did, then followed it up with another text describing the house and my car in the driveway 'in case gps has issues'. He called a little while later saying "You sent me the description of the house, but no address". Well, both messages were right there in the thread. Don't know if it was a problem on his end or my end, but there you go.

yes, on T-Mo, although I am not sure which part of the chain is to blame. there is a real PITA problem with texting between Android and iOS that I am often part of, mostly when part of a group chat.

Interesting. We're on T-Mobile, too. Now that I think about it, I had it happen once before on a group text to two of my brothers. One got the whole chain, but one brother received only the follow-up, which in this particular case made for an interesting misinterpretation of the text he did get.

Ditto here.

I've had this happen on occasion, most recently with my brother a few weeks ago. I have an iPhone, he doesn't.



It is what it is.

Only case I can remember was during the Rally to Restore Sanity in 2010, where cell towers were just overloaded and messages were NOT going through for at least an hour.
