Hello to all, I am new here and looking for advice. I am one of the former Suncom folks that is now T Mobile. I have been looking forward to the switch for months since I have never received coverage at my home with my cell. For about a year I maintained a contract with Alltel just for reliability (I am in eastern NC). However, I have a need for an unlocked GSM quadband phone since my husband lives in Italy and I make frequent trips there. Alltel won't play nice with international correspondence, so I was thrilled to get a phone with Suncom where I could text internationally and simply swap sims when I go to Italy. I recently cancelled my Alltel, since my phone got wet and I didn't want to buy a whole new one...I hoped for the best in reception improvement with T Mobile. Well the reception is the same at my house, and now my husband does not receive my text messages. I get his fine. Mine says message sent and customer support sees in my account that I have sent it, but it goes floating off into space or something. Anyone else having a texting problem? I have friends here that are using their Italian sims and picking up local coverage. I swapped sims with one and the message went through from my phone to my husband. I sent messages to 2 different Italian networks on my sim to Wind and Vodafone and both went through. (However, since they are using local coverage it was probably a redundant test). My husband is on Wind. I have gone over my settings with Customer Care several times and they see no blocks, my settings are all good. We even replaced my old Suncom sim with a new T Mobile sim. I think that my next action will be to request to close the account and open it new and fresh. Since about Labor Day weekend, we have mutually spent about $200 in international calling. The texting is an important routine for us for our daily information "Im 20 minutes from the house" type of stuff so we can coordinate our daily skype FREEEE internet calling. (that one text is important because I do not have coverage at my house...EEK!) If there are any ideas, I would appreciate it. I have a T Mobile SDA Smartphone that I bought on Ebay before the company switch. Worked great before and does everything but text now. Now I have to go recharge my calling card...again. Thanks in advance!
