First off, a very happy new year to everyone!

So the ball drops and yadda yadda yadda, I whip out my trusty LG VX8300 to text a girl I know and say happy new years. Well, tried five times, and no luck. So, I try texting other people, with the same result.

Is anyone else getting this?

Quoting DAL7e7 (Thread starter):

It's the New Year. Everybody is sending messages and all at once. The mobile networks will be in overload. Im still receiving New Year messages and it was 7 hours ago.



Can you say 'Beer Can' without sounding like a Jamaican saying 'Bacon'?

Its New years,the system gets flooded with people sending 1000's of texts a second,I myself send 1 text message to 100+ people on my phone to wish them happy new year etc and millions of others do the same so the system gets flooded.
The text i sent out i got sent to back to me like 20times from people so the New Years text people send dont send to just one but 100's........

it's simply capacity problems. Network capacity for NYE is usually expanded.

Happened with Tmobile here as well. I was receiving messages sent at 11 PM sometime during the night, but at least 30 minutes late (fell aslepp at 11:30 with an empty inbox).

I sent adopim88 messages at 11:15pm, she got those at 3:40am (when she was up puking her guts out...hahahah!).

As said earlier, it's the usual New Years eve rush for everyone to send out messages to everyone in their contact list - I managed to get 6-7 messages off at about 12.30, and I got replies from most of them within half an hour or so Big grin

Doesn't beat New Years eve 1999/2000 though - I was recieving loads of messages both 1st & 2nd of January, including messages from people in other countries who I had no idea were  rotfl
