Okay so apparently starting saturday or sunday I have been having a huge SMS issue.
Have had the phone for over a year and have never experienced this issue. Yesterday morning the wife calls me because she has sent me 9 SMS messages and I wasn't responding, my outbound text messages had been going out fine, but weren't in reply to her messages. After I get off the phone with her I reboot the phone, I find that from Sunday and Monday morning I had received SMS messages from 4 contacts (total of about 15 messages) and had not received notification of any of them. Some of the messages were from a buddy I had been sending outbound messages to Sunday and not received any response.
I have been receiving my SMS since the reboot, but I think some notifications may have not played (not sure on this). Some of the SMS I have received this morning the notification has played, but not until another message was received. The only thing I have done to the phone recently was turning off data when we were out on Saturday because I was running low on battery, data has been on since then so I don't think this is the issue.
Anyone with any ideas? If this keeps up the SIM will be going into a Veer or Pre2 until I can trouble shoot the Pre3. I send a minimum of 2000 SMS a month, most months closer to or over 3000. It is my primary form of communication every day especially while at work (both the wife and I work in offices where our breaks and lunches are not scheduled so it's not always reasonable to be able to make a phone call to communicate).
I really don't want to doctor, but I am starting to think that may be the next logical step. Haven't added or even updated any patches in quite a while so I don't think I have a borked patch.
