I was reaching all my selected twitters to my phone for about the first 3 weeks after launch and then for no apparent reason it stopped sending them, and I haven't received any twitter since about 2-3 weeks...

I have since moved over to 2degrees as twitter was about the only thing I had left on Vodafone, txt prices are just too high (for a low user like me, i have no plan to send 1000-2000 txts).

Just 2 days ago I put in my old Vodafone SIM card and I got 4-6 fairly new twitters appear on the phone and I thought oh YAY they fixed it. Hehe nop, I was wrong, they where the only new twitters I got for the whole weekend (and yes I did get new twitters when I checked my twitter account, they just never came to my phone).

So now im back to my 2degrees SIM :) (wish my phone had two SIM card slots Laughing)

Anyone else having similar issues...resolutions...?

It's all working fine at this end. We haven't had any complaints about the service not working in the way you describe.

You know twitter is not a vodafone product

Also SMS have a expiry time of 72 hours if not delivered

I know that, so you think it's a Titter problem?

Ill give them an email first them.

I never really thought that it could be twitter, so used to it being a NZ compony with the fault.

Mine are still coming in - 120 a day sometimes till I unselected some serial BS tweeters to get texts from.

Are you getting DMs ok?
