So me and my friend who are both on Skinny are having issues sending texts on occasion. 

He has a Motorola Flipout running Android 2.1, purchased from Telecom XT.
I have an iPhone 4S running IOS5, purchased from Telecom XT.

We both have ported numbers, both from Telecom XT.

Now its really intermittent, we send a text and forget about it until later when we wonder why we have no reply, and see the message sending failed, and have to resend the text again.

So is there anything we could do about this, shy of calling Skinny? Because it is seriously really really annoying having to wait and watch for the text to send. #firstworldproblems.
