    ok so since saturday texts to my fiance and myself were taking 30-60 minutes to go through and be received.
    AT&T put in new sim card last night and text to myself still took 38 minutes.
    Today they were taking 12 minutes this morning and now taking 2-3 minutes and texts to fiance taking same amount of time.

    AT&T said it could be antennae problems and to go to apple for replacement.

    My question is will Apple even do anything now that texts are taking 3 minutes as opposed to 12-30 minutes?

    Should I even bother going in?

    Anyone else having texting issues with AT&T?

    Thanks

    Just tell them your texts are delayed. Anything longer than seconds is a problem. They will replace your phone.

    No problems here but I highly doubt it's a hardware issue. More than likely a carrier issue that will correct itself on it's own. Give it a few days.

    I don't think it's a hardware issue. I've had texts from my wife come in more than 12 hours late. Usually they are quick though.

    agreed. i had an issue back in december to where is was getting back-to back-to back-to back-to back texts at a time.. like they accumulated and then came all at once!

    turned out it was indeed a network issue, which corrected itself within a couple of days

    Yeah, seems like a network issue to me. Not hardware.

    I had the same issue back in the beginning of 2009 when they put 3G towers in my area.

    I've been having a lot of issues with txt and mms messages the last couple of days.

    Today it took 5 hours before I received an mms I had a coworker send me. Tonight I tried getting an automated txt reply and still not received after an hour

    Since AT&T started allowing MMS on iPhone I've been having trouble with them. They always take forever to send, and sometimes they never get sent. I sometimes have to send MMS's three or four times before they finally go through.

    its probably just EDGE, it's slow, that's normal.
