N1, Texting, and T-Mobile

    OK. So a family member of mine works at T-mobile and I am on their plan. Before that I had Sprint and Verizon. I have ALWAYS had terrible luck with GSM, but had not used it for years.

    So of course I ditch my old carriers and get on their plan. I got a G1 the same day theirs did. Theirs worked great in my house, mine didn't work at all. I switched to the MyTouch..... same issue.

    I went to a BB 8900 for a while because of the UMA and the UMA was flawless. I am currently using the new Vonage app, and it should have been labeled in my opinion.

    So I LOVE Android and decide to ditch BB and get an N1. My first N1 died with in days (search my name and read the saga), I get my replacement, and still no service, but I LOVE the N1, and I love Android.

    So here is the issue.... My phone will randomly just drop service all the time. 4 bars, 3 bars, emergency mode for like 5 minutes. When I send texts whether it be via Handcent or the stock messaging app, I get an "unable to send" or envelope with a clock on it.

    When I get back in a service area though, it doesn't send. Not even days later. not even after a reboot. It just sits there.

    About a week ago I sent a mass MMS at 1pm. A bunch of funny pix (about 7) to like 10 of my friends. They all say they have sent. At 1AM I get a bunch of texts from pissed off friends to "STOP!". They just sent all at once hours later.

    4 phones, At least 7 different Sim cards..... Why will one persons T-mobile work great and anothers not work at all? Is there a setting I can change....something I can mess with? I am considering a repeater or trying to mod the internal antenna.

    Any ideas? I'm about to go to another carrier, but I want a beast of a phone... the new Verizon Droid and the EVO 4G from Sprint both look promising, but I would like a full multitouch screen...not just one that gets 2 points.

    I'm a phone nerd and know they aren't future proof, but where is the freaking Verizon N1 already?!

    maybe it's your sim card that's the problem

    I just said I have changed the Sim card several times. Thanks for trying man, but it definitely not the SIM card as I put in a new one yesterday.
