    I'm really getting mad about the SMS messaging. Half the time the messages
    don't even go through. About 15 min later I end up calling the person and
    they say they didn't even get it. I know it's not just my phone because
    others have sent them to me and I don't get all of them either. I think
    Sprint should have really tested this SMS before rolling it out to every one
    and taking the old Short mail off of the phone. I think stupid things like
    this makes Sprint PCS look bad. Also your supposed to be able to Ready Link
    with a push of a button and half the time it doesn't even connect and when
    you start talking it disconnects and says try again. I just needed to get
    this off my chest sorry for blowing up like this.

    Neither did I... I learned about it via seeing some flyers for it at
    Radio Shack. It's official enough I guess, but not technically a
    "rollout announcement".

    I'm in the Kansas City market and have used it quite a bit, and as far
    as I know I've only experienced one dropped message. It was sent from
    my VM4500 to a T-Mobile customer. Another message sent shortly after
    the failed one went through though. I usually send about 15-20
    messages per day. Hope you have better luck in the future.

    It's quite a testimony to the problms of SMS if one has to rely on luck. And
    that is likely why SMS hasn't even been officially announced or promoted.

    No its not. Ever heard of a soft launch? This is not the first offering
    from a cellular provider to be introduced with no advertising.

    Although I've been able to use the SMS since early February just today I got
    a message from Sprint about the feature. OK--who was asleep at what wheel?

    I don't think it's been officially rolled out yet. Otherwise you'd have heard
    something.

    I don't know whether it's so big a deal to do a special announcement. SPCS
    does have a web page for it. Don't know how long it's been up.

    It would help if we knew where the SMS is going to. I've been SMS'ing
    domestically to Sprint PCS and Cingular users without problems.

    Are you sending SMS messages inside to other Sprint users, or to other
    networks? Are the messages going within the US? Are they to ported
    numbers? Any little detail helps.
