Whenever I've had this problem, it's been because I'm connected to a bad wifi connection when the text message came in.
If its a good wifi connection that is working properly or if I have no wifi connection, it doesn't happen.
Just a suggestion, if your only answer to someone asking for help is going to be "use the search n00b!" then I would suggest simply not answering at all. One of two things will happen after that, either the person asking the question will use the search on their own and find the answer after no one responds to the question, or someone nicer will come along and go ahead and answer the question for them.
