    Why would it take 50 minutes to get a txt message from my wife's phone? Happening more often lately.

    Issues with SMS are almost always related to the carrier. Is coverage poor? Have you updated your PRL?

    As lak611 stated, SMS delays, etc. are mostly a carrier issue. I have problems with a few of my buddies on various other carriers (I'm with AT$T) - send them texts and they never get them. It only happens once in a while, but it's still frustrating!!! Example: I'll send out the same text to 4 buddies at once...one on Sprint (BB phone), 2 on Verizon (1 Android & 1 old Samsung) & 1 on AT$T (iphone)...if I have probs with any, it's the 2 on Verizon. Oh well.....

    I've learned that the receiving person needs to delete old SMS from their phones to get prompt messaging. Have a buddy who never deletes and it can take days to get a message to him. Keep telling him to read then delete all texts. DUH...
