    My company dispatches service calls to couriers across the country via SMS messages sent to Nextel phones. Over the past week or so we have been experiencing massive delays in the delivery of SMS messages to most of the phones - in some cases the messages have not been delivered until the next day.

    Is anyone aware of any problems on Nextel's end which would cause these delays? Nextel has so far denied that there are any problems, but our messages are still being delayed.

    They have had problems in the past with this issue, and did not deny them. A few months ago they had issues with their spam blocking servers because they were so overworked. My messages to Nextel customers would sometimes take hours and days. Mayeb this is the case again.

    Earlier today, I sent SMS messages via e-mail, to a Nextel customer in the Boston area and the messages were delivered immediately.

    We are using SNPP to submit our SMS pages, which is where the delays seem to be happening. SMTP, TAP and the webpage interface did not seem to be impacted.
