    Force reboot the phone? Seriously?

    Will this myth never die? Of course not, that would be like expecting journalism to make a comeback.

    Reboot the phone the normal way, there is only one reason to use the non-maskable interrupt to reboot the phone and that is if the UI or input devices are unresponsive.

    A force reboot like you suggest is exactly the same as pulling the power cable out of the back of your PC while you’re using it. We’d not give that advice with a straight face, so why is it given or iPhone?

    It is just that “Force Restart The Phone” sounds better to you than “Turn it off, and then back on”.

    Don’t even get me started on the banal concept of terminating the background processes of a NON RUNNING app, and then terminating the entire phone. Sheesh. Pathetic.

      Thanks for your thoughts and feedback Mat. Do you have a solution to iMessages being out of order, or are you just here to criticize the methods offered?

    This happened to me and the problem was fixed when T-Mobile updated their carrier settings. Took about 3 weeks for them to figure out what happened.

    You sound lonely. Are you OK? Why do you have a phone if nobody is calling?

    If never connected to internet for time set, how would any messages be received?

    I’m a very longtime Mac user since 1984. I’ve owned all of them, well, except those crappy Centris.

    So I’m smart about Macs. And I read this page every damn day. Reading is how I GOT smart. Some of the hints are pretty basic, some not, but all reliable.

    I’ve seen this problem manifest on both the iPhone and iMessages on the Mac. Because this began happening with the recent updates of iOS and the messages pass through Apple’s systems first, I am blaming this on Apple’s oversight of a bug — that they should probably consider fixing.
