I have a delivery confermation set on my texting and it showed that what I send is delivered, I just don't recieve the repley's. It seems to be particularly bad during the evening and night time hours....which is when I need it most as I work the night shift on my local PD.
Nextel/Sprint hasn't been able to help at all with this, and I am honestly at my whit's end with this thing. I am about to switch back to the Blackberry, which I can't stand either....but at least it works.
I also bought a nextel motorola i1 and I have been having trouble sending texts since February. Yesterday I searched the market for a application called textplus. With this app. I am able to text (finally) I recommend this to all i1 users who are having trouble sending texts due to the phones IMEI / unlocked stupid gimmicks. textplus is the only app that I have that allows me to send text to my contacts in my phone. I don't want to switch back to the blackberry because of the 2 megapixel camera. I think this will help the many i1 users who are having trouble sending texts. Don't fall for the feature resets, factory resets because it just resets all of your phones settings and gives you the same problem. My phone is originally from mexico and i am a boost mobile customer. They told me that they can't activate nextel phones on the boost network but finally everything works like its suppose to. The only thing that I hate about this phone is that the gps, wifi, and other games/apps will kill the battery. but TEXTPLUS is what you will need from the android market if you want to text.
