Default SMS problems

Does anyone else have problems where their sms messages do not send and calls do not work? This is solved with a reboot so am I right in assuming this is a software issue?

I posted something like this in another thread recently. Where I live I'm on the fringe of a LTE tower and never have more than one bar (and often showing none). Turns out that when LTE network is bad the phone will switch back and forth between LTE and 3g, causing me to receive text messages sometimes more than 20 minutes delayed.

All I have done is switch to 3g preferred in network settings and everything's fine. I also have significantly better standby battery life, as the phone isn't changing back and forth anymore (that and LTE will always use more battery anyway).

Hope that helps/works for you.

This happens as well with custom ROMs, I have to disable LTE using Cataclysm due to this delay.

If you guys are having this problem while WIFI is on, it's a known problem that Google knows about but hasn't fixed yet. You have to set the phone to only use 3G to fix it for now.
