    Default Not getting some text messages

    Not getting some of my text messages since the update. Sometimes I get no message at all and another time I got about ten the day after they were sent. This didn't happen before ICS update. Anyone else having this issue?

    I also have had issues with texts on ICS.. At first Handcent wasn't notifying me of new texts, so I tried GoSMS, and that also is not displaying some of my incoming text notifications.. Hours later people will text me again and then I'll get a notification, and I'll see both texts (the earlier one and the one they just sent).

    Same issues as everyone else that posted so far. I'll even get duplicate texts.

    I'm having problems too. Not getting a number of texts sent to me, although these never come through at all. I assumed it was a problem with Sprint, but now I wonder...

    I don't see this issue at all while using the stock app, however when using SMS Popup sometimes it fails to alert me of some txt's but when I open the messanger app, they are actually all there... strange...

    Not for me...the stock app doesn't have them either.

    I'm not entirely convinced it isn't Sprint. This has happened before and it was due to some tower issues. Only reason i wonder if it might be ICS is because it only seems to be happening to me. My wife isn't affected (she has an iPhone).

    I agree: as you say, it has happened before.

    Interesting... we'll need more people to chime on this and see if there is a pattern.

    Today I got a few that went to regular SMS instead of Google voice. First issue I've had since the update but did fit the pattern described.

    My wife's phone has been having a lot of trouble with texts as described in this thread. She uses Handcent. She does not use Google Voice, so her texts are going through Sprint only.

    I don't have as many troubles as she does. (Although I don't send nearly as many texts as she does.) I have been using the stock app. The only time I was really noticing having trouble was when I was futzing with Google Voice setup a few days ago, after updating to ICS. I attributed those problems to me getting GV balled up. :-)

    My wife claims her reception is not nearly as good as it used to be either, with lots of dropped calls.

    I have this issue slightly but usually I can't send. Either MMS gets hung up for days or sms fails instantly after sending.

    Yeah I have had the same problem. And what's worse is that I wont know that it didn't send until i try to text them again and realize it is still trying to send. It get hung up. I use Handscent btw.

    What's also weird about mine is I use NoLed.. sometimes I will get a notification of a text and open up messages, but nothing is there. Then hours later I get several messages at once. Happens at work and home. Work I have really good service too.

    I contacted Sprint and I got the usual canned response - the first we hear of these, no reported service issues in your area but we'll look into it. Has anyone else communicated with Sprint about this?

    I have been having the issue of some messages showing up but late with no notification, so I have no idea they are there.

    The messaging app has also been crashing like crazy; like I will open it and it will just go ahead and close if I try and enter a specific message thread. It has taken up to 5 or 6 attempts to type a message, and this happens every other time I open it.

    It is driving me crazy- is there anyway to uninstall the official messaging app and re-download it?

    I'm curious... How many of you have done a hard reset before or after ICS update? I only ask because whenever I do a major update like this, a hard reset has really kept issues away for me. My Nexus is super smooth on ICS and I hard reset on GB before I updated

    Did you integrate your phone with Google voice? This sometimes happens to me if I'm in an area with bad coverage.

    I am having the exact same problems since the ICS upgrade. I'm getting false notifications as well.

    SOLVED!

    Well, it's 8:36 am and i still haven't slept yet. But i fixed all the problems with my phone thank god. MMS was simply not working with my phone and I also couldn't download anything off of play market.

    After hours of messing around and reinstalling 95 different ROMS to try to fix some of these problems, i realized all you have to do is update your PRL and Profile. Setting>About Phone>Sprint System updates.

    The thing is for me at least it constantly failed updating. If that happens to you i figured out all you have to do it turn on 4g. Even if you don't get 4g reception (which I don't), it will update flawlessly. After I did this all of my messages and picture messages were sending and receiving with absolutely no problems at all.

    I am stock, using the stock messaging app, and I have problems sending and receiving texts.

    I also have noticed decreased reception since ICS update.

    Try what I said above. And also go to the messenger ap, click setting, and UNCHECK auto receive messages . Worked for me

    Drummer7: Are you saying to update the profile and PRL and to uncheck auto retrieve? Or that if you update profile and PRL you don't need to uncheck auto retrieve?
    Please advise as I am having all the same problems as everyone else and it's brutal.

    If I uncheck auto-retrieve how will I receive text messages? Isn't that the whole point to text messaging?

    I updated PRL, updated my profile, and unchecked auto-receive. By unchecking auto-receive i'm pretty sure the only thing that changes is you have to press 'download' when receiving an MMS (pictures or group texts), but that's really no big deal. Since I've done that all my texts have been going through, I too was having major problems these past few weeks.

    I will give that a try and see if that helps.
