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?
DAL7e7 is wondering... Do pilots take crash courses?

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