I clock in about 250 text messages a month. So far, no delays and
messages tend to come in within around 30 seconds of them being sent.
Occassionally I can get in a pretty rapid back-and-forth with someone
else on a blackberry via Cingular. (cobine two gadgest with thumb
keyboards and you can get a pretty good exchange going via SMS).
It could be the area you're in. Not sure how SMS works (It doesn't
appear to go over Vision), but the gateway in your area could
potentially be congested, or voice traffic is high and has priority over
E-mail fudged to thwart spammers.
