    Hey Guys,

    My wife and I have both been experiencing an odd issue with our 8Xs. Randomly we stop receiving text messages, email, and when someone attempts to call us it goes straight to voice mail. Every time this happens the only way to get the phone to behave normally again, for awhile at least, is to send an email, text, or make a phone call. Once this is done everything we missed starts flooding in. Here is what I tried so far with little success:

    1) Turned off wifi, no affect.
    2) Switched off 4g and ran with 2g. This seems to cause the issue to happen less.
    3) Factory reset
    4) Turned roaming on.

    We are on T-Mobile and almost always have 3-5 bars of service depending on our location.

    Thanks in advance!

    Okay... Get the Internet and MMS APN data from T-Mobile.
    Insert it manually and at the bottom of these settings set your phones to ipV4 only.
    Report if that helps. There are issues with ipV6 on some routers / firewalls.

    I'm having the exact same issue. Thought I was the only one. I'm on T-Mobile as well. Restarting the phone or turning airplane mode on or off also resolves it for me, temporarily.

    I updated my phone with the recent update and setup the connection with the HTC connection setup app and it seems like it may have resolved the issue. I'm not sure which fixed it, but I haven't experienced the issue since the day the update was released. I'll reply back if I experience it again.

    Happened on my htc hd7 a lot back in the day whenever I was getting incoming texts, emails etc in dead zones. I would receive the messages hours later after they were sent to me. Also at times while on the phone talking, I wasn't able to send or receive picture messages. Could it be tmobile's hspa+? Are WP users on other carriers experiencing the same thing?

    On the t-mobile forums, they indicated they worked with HTC and have identified the issue. Workaround is to switch on/off airplane mode to prevent, but it will require an update to resolve

    Issue still occurs for me after the portico update. Someone on the T-Mobile forums mentioned they had some luck by turning of visual voicemail. HTC 8X Randomly Drops T-Mobile Network Service Support | T-Mobile

    I have the same issue with my 8X on TMO US. I posted this in the TMO forums also... disabling Visual Voicemail did not help, setting the phone to 2G has resolved the problem the past 2 days (it would happen to me several times a day)

    Disabling visual voicemail didn't fix the issue for me either.

    I've not once seen this on my Verizon 8X, but I would suggest a simple power down with removing and reinserting the SIM. Then boot back up and wait a few minutes. At least on Verizon that will update the PRL and apparently forces re-authentication. I've seen it fix fluctuating signal on other devices, so maybe that's somehow related to the missed texts and auto voicemail redirect.

    We've tried that, the only fix till an update is to toggle airplane mode on and off periodically. I just do it once when I wake up and once later jn the day.
