    I would assume it’s a one off random event. But worth keeping an eye on for a bit. Strange for sure.

    I know verizon has been having all kinds of issues. I cut my 5g off and switched it back to 4g.

    The biggest issue going on with Verizon currently is they are removing 3G. My iPhone stays on LTE most of the time.

    I think I solved the issue. Keri's Army guy is here and one of his sisters is an Apple tech. He called her and went through some settings. I had location for time and date off. This is why when I was in time and date I kept getting that * that circled. Now location is on for the time zone and it is showing properly. Somehow an app or something set my phone back to pacific time and location could not fix it.

    If you are in a spot with no service with verizon. Then get a text message. You might not actually receive that message for as much as a month. Most often it’s a week or two later. I saw a month at least once. I don’t verizon anymore.

    I have been using Verizon now since 2013 and never had an issue with missing an SMS message while out of tower range. In fact, before 2013 I was using AT&T going all the way back to the late 1990s and don't ever remember a missing SMS message. I have spoken to some friends that have mentioned they have had missing SMS messages using T-Mobile and another using U.S. Cellular. I took the time to speak to someone that does Tech work for T-Mobile and they told me that all across the US different providers either own or lease a tower. Sometimes a piece of equipment can go bad and cause all sorts of issues. I know this for a fact because one of my neighbors had an issue with getting good service from Metro because the T-Mobile tower that services this area was bad. I am not a network engineer, but the ones I have spoken to have told me there is no cell phone provider anywhere in the world that is immune from these types of problems.

    Only problem I often have, is time zone not automatically changing. Have to turn off phone. Then turn on and correct time shows. It’s stayed on central time for over a day, and 500 miles. Last week, I delivered and picked up in eastern while phone was in central. Reported all wrong times. Lol. Basically was running an hour late, didn’t realize till later that evening. I often check the weather in different cities, to tell if it’s set correctly. The times always correct for each. A separate time piece, maybe worn on a wrist. Someone should invent that. Lol.

    If I were still driving OTR I would set this to manual IF I wanted my phone to stay on my home time. I asked Keri if her iPhone was changing time zones properly when she was at work and she said yes.
