I recently had an instance where I was out of signal on my Orange network C550. Someone on a 3 network mobile sent me two text messages during this time and I did not receive them. Not then. And not subsequently.

When this was discussed we then experimented by turning off each phone and sending a text to the other phone. The Orange network recovered successfully from the "outage" and delivered the text when the 3 phone was then once again turned on. However, the text sent from the 3 network phone to the Orange phone when it was off did not arrive.

Has anybody else had this experience?

That's strange because the message centre should store the message until it is deliverable to the recipient, discarding it if the user doesn't pick it up after a long period of time.

I can't see how the messages can get lost? Maybe I've missed something that someone else can solve?
