Do txt messages go through faster if sent while on 3g? Is there any advantage to sending a txt while on 3g over 2g? Example: less congestion on 3g?

No advantages to the end user

Would VF rather a txt be sent over 2g or 3g? Or don't care?

They don't care - I wouldn't imagine there would be many (if any) people that would purposely change their handset bands just to send a SMS.

3G is best for the carrier

Here's a scenario; what about if say on New Years the txt network is congested. Would changing from 3g to 2g make any difference?

The simplest answer would be no. But there are so many unknown variables in the question.

There are many reasons why SMS's can be delayed, ranging from overloading on an individual site (and 3G has a much higher capacity than GSM) down to congestion within the SMSR's or if you're sending off network the capacity of the links and the SMSC's/SMSR's of the destination network.

At the first V8 race in Hamilton I was unable to make or receive calls or texts(network busy). Noticed other people were able to use there's. Turned off 3G and everything worked fine. Shows hows much capacity 3G has!

I assume delivery would take the exact same amount of time. But my old Sony Ericsson K610 would take about half the amount of time to send a text on 3G.

This was a config issue not related to capacity over the UU interface issue was from node B to RNC IuB interface they are very different

In times of heavy localized congestion (concert, rugby game etc) your call/sms is less likely to be rejected by 2g as it currently handles the radio interface a bit better.
