    I've had this happen to me before, I believe it has something to do with the signal. Turn off your data and turn it back on / or your voice signal - just toggle it and see if that clears it up. You can test by sending a text message to yourself from at&t's website

    I had this problem on an iPhone. Turns out it only happened when I had an EDGE signal (I live outside of any 3G area - by about one mile). Normally, voice+text has a priority over data. However, if you have a 'constantly connected' email system (e.g. Exchange, or have gmail set up to be like an Exchange service), then the email is always using up the data service, and can block voice & text signals. Once I changed my email from being constantly on to periodic checking (e.g., every 15 minutes or more), all my missed texts & calls problems went away.

    2 ways, you can kill 3G only by using switchpan (select the data button) scroll down and select gsm only. Or to kioll data competly use "quick settings" and turn off apn.

    Though you're going to end up paying for it so you might as well use it. Unless the reason is to keep a kid from using data.
