So how long do you think this will take to make it into my journal?

Depends when you wrote it.

Actually, it only took about 15 minutes that time. The last time it took about nine hours. Weird huh.

Which carrier?

(Some times I wish I still had all the cards to do these graphs.)

T-Mobile. I was using the Excell.To SMS-to-email gateway to do post-by-email. Might be an easier way.

I've also noticed that if I send SMS to a number in the Bay Area, it goes almost immediately. If I send to a number in, say, New York City (or if they send one to me) it could take up to six hours.

I guess the networks still aren't fully integrated. (Was it Aerial or Powertel out in New York before Voicestream bought them?)

The intercarrier SMS situation in the US is still fucked, but it's getting better. (No comparison to the European market, though.) The carriers are still unconvinced that it's worth their time(=money) to really make it work.

I'm not sure what the NYC situation was like before the massive consolidation. (In the graph I linked to, NYC T-Mobile was Omnipoint Comm.)
