SMS and MMS Delays - A constant issue?

I am having lots of issues with SMS messages I send or received not being delivered to the destination or being received hours late. This is an ongoing issue with T-Mobile and now that I have the G1 I can confirm that this issue has occured on 3 different phones for me. This also occurs with MMS messages. I've noticed that it's a lot worse for messages being sent to another carrier, a short code, or email address. Typically I don't notice the problem when sending to other T-Mobile customers. Over the last year or two I've contacted T-Mobile about this and I've been given the run-around. I've also seen that if you do a Google search for "t-mobile sms delay" there are MANY people that are having the same issue.

    we're having the same problem. Different handsets but can't send messages between family members or friends. They can take several days to arrive (or simply fail to deliver). If I text from an AT&T phone... instant delivery.
    MMS messages seem to work okay most of the time.
    We noticed the problems started for us (on a family plan) when we went from charge/message to a flat rate for texting...
