Interesting problem... Lately, not all the time, whenever I send a text, I watch the reception bar at the top and it is not dropping to 1x to send the text. In addition, some of my friends have not been receiving my texts when I send them. Are these two things related? I swear I've seen it before where it drops to 1x to send the text, and then goes back to 3G.. I guess it's also possible that the phone is dropping to 1x, but the bar up top isn't updating? Thanks in advance.
