I switched from my Optimus M to the Esteem in November. I can't say it's the phone itself, but I've had a lot of problems with texts since I got the Esteem. Some days I won't get them at all and sometimes I'll get a bunch of delayed ones (as in 12 hours later). I remember it happening with the Optimus but nowhere near as much. Just wondering if anyone else has this problem. Can't tell if it's the phone or just the service.
