    That’s a feature of being in the sticks I’m afraid. Once a delivery failure happens the network doesn’t bother sending it again for a while. If your phone is running out of power then the chances of it missing the original send go up further.

    iMessages on an iPhone (to those who share the technology) would at least use your wifi – failing that any smartphone would allow you to use Skype which would help… as long as the people you are calling also run skype.

    …obviously Carcosa needs a new service provider ?
