    My husband & I were in Vermont. I have a Galaxy S4 & he has an Iphone 4. We were in a mountain area standing right next to each other. He was able to send and receive texts & pictures and check the weather & radar. I was able to do NOTHING. We both have Sprint and I use Chomp for texting. Every time I tried to text, I kept getting a notice that the message was not send and to turn on data (data was turned on). We both tried the same weather apps (My Radar & Weatherbug) he could open both, I could open neither.
    Is this an Android issue or just an issue with this particular phone?

    Did you have wi-fi access? If so, your husband's iPhone may have been using wi-fi for iMessage. Your phone, however, probably can't use wi-fi for SMS, because SMS relies on voice signal. So if the the cell signal was bad, and if your phone isn't capable of wi-fi calling, then SMS can be impacted.
