So I myself am on day 2 and still no incoming texts. Hopefully later tonight i'll start getting texts.
Strange that a few others are having trouble gettin texts..maybe its more of an issued than I hoped. Damn :p
Are you saying that you can send but not receive? If that is the case, it may just be an issue of your number being ported. Lets hope that is the problem.

I definitely opted for the 16 gig. So far so good, except that I haven't been able to receive texts. I saw my girlfriend send it, I just don't know where it went cause its not in the SMS area.. Any ideas what might be going on?
Try sending yourself a text. Worked on my son's phone.

Wow that supprisingly worked for me. So I have no problem sending texts and I knew its just the receiving part I had issues with. But I just sent myself a text and I got it almost instantly. When i was reading posts from last July when people had similar problem when porting numbers they said they could get texts from other ATT&T customers only at first. So since i'm att&t i got my own text, haha nice!:p

Must be from the past some where, since it was a 2008 thread. Or, did I miss something here?
He had all the signs of a sleeper spammer. American name and stock photo of an American guy and bumping old threads. I banned him last night when he said he was from Deleware. His IP showed India.

I am cracking up!! You can trace IP's? Does this mean you know where I am on vacation out of the state?
Yes, but I don't typically look at IPs unless I suspect someone is a spammer or asks a question that has an answer that it dependent on region, but didn't state their location. I never post a member's location unless they have already stated it themselves. Spammers don't count. 99% this happens behind the scenes with no posts by mods or members, but occasionally someone gets called out on it and we make an example of them and the lengths they will go to to appear to be regular members just prior to unleashing their spam.

Delaware!? Why Delaware I wonder? If I was going to pretend to be from the U.S. I would definitely be from Nantucket. You'd hear some pretty impressive stuff about me too!

You can tell everyone where I'm posting from anytime. Matter of fact, I want you to next week just to see if this claim is true.
