    I have had the same problem with the 6601 and now the 6600. Not sure what the problem is.

    What is weird is I think I receive messages better from other carriers (Cingular...) better than from Sprint phones

    Anyone else have this problem.

    Is this something NEW? Were you receiving msgs before and it just stopped? Or have you never been able to recieve them?

    Need a bit more info to help out.

    One thing I have found, is that if I use the phone as a modem...I don't get the text messages, or voicemails for that matter. So I hooked my G1000 back up to use it as a modem and leave my PPC6601 free, and I haven't missed a single text message. I rely on these messages constantly for emails alerts, etc. So I couldn't go without them.

    Aside from that, I get the Text pretty fast, and Yes I am on Sprint.

    Were you currently active on the internet when the texts were supposed to come through...haven't noticed that affecting mine, unless using the modem as previously stated, but just a thought.
    I can monitor my home and office CCTV surveillance systems through my PDA phone...can you?

    It happened several times with the Sprint 6601, but until the other day not on the 6600 (at least that I know of).

    I have never used the 6600 as a modem, and I would say that I get most of my messages.

    The most recent time was when I was out watching a game and my wife texted me a couple times and I never received them. The phone was not in use and in my pocket.

    After she called and told me she had been messaging my I texted her to see if it worked and it did. Then I got her reply. It's really quite odd.

    That is rather strange...the only possibility that I might offer, is updating the information on the phone...see if they have a provisioning update, as I know that has affected my notifications on previous phones somewhat.

    I don't usually use SMS, but I sent text messages from my Cingular phone to my Sprint PPC6600. I receive them every time instantly. I also received all system notifications, and welcome, etc via sms
