Default Question about text messages- cell phone or carrier to blame?

Lately some of my texts do not send unless I turn my phone off and back on. They sit in my outbox with a "sending in progress" status until the phone is rebooted. Also, when it's turned back on, I'll get a flood of text messages from throughout the day all at once.

Is this a problem with the network (Rogers in Canada) or my piece of **** phone (Motorola Razr)?

First of all Rogers sucks and it could very well be your phone.

I had that problem with an old LG VX4500 phone. Otherwise it was a great phone. I never turned it off though and when it didn't send txt's I figured it was time for a reboot, like any other 'computer', if you want to think of it that way. Of course, it very rarely happened to me, and I'm in the USA and using Verizon.

So, yeah... probably not the same thing

I have a question about this as well.

Lets say you have a text package with Tmobile (which I do). How will they charge me if I send a text to somebody in Canada?

Yeah Rogers is absolutely terrible. I'm locked in a contract with them for another year, though if I need a new phone it might be cheaper to pay the remainder out and go back to Sasktel.

I'd be okay with doing that if the missed text messages come through, but I'm also only receiving about half of those as well. People are asking why I'm ignoring them.

Ok, I'm canceling with Rogers and getting a new phone with another carrier. I need something with a decent camera, large screen and relatively thin. Suggestions fellow nerds?

Hmm... you could go with a LG Chocolate, I know a guy at work with one and he loves it. Or if you prefer to stay with a Moto, there is the Krzr.

Both are on Sasktel. I have a LG VX6200 on Sasktel, Tri-Mode ftw!

The display is nice, its thin, fits the pocket really well. Camera is only like 1.3mp though
