Airave/Airvana: Anyone still having texting issues?

I have an Airvana but have ceased using it because it caused major texting issues as well as voicemail issues. However, our Sprint signal has gone from bad to worse, so I guess I have to try to use it again... but we can't live with the texting issues. Anyone else still have SMS problems?

Samsung Airave 2G - only problem I have is that when I get a VM and call to check it, and delete it, my phone still says I have a message waiting. This does not happen when I delete the message while on a macro cell.

The workaround while still connected to the Airave is to send myself a VM, then check and delete it. I found out how to create a VM to myself from within the VM system. When I delete that message, the indicator is cleared. Simply going into the phone settings and telling it to clear the VMI does not work; it will simply reappear after a time until I perform the workaround (or get another voicemail and delete it).

The second workaround is to call the VM system while connected to a macrosite and hang up. That clears the indicator.

Every once in awhile i would have TXT problems on my phone. By power cycling the airvana fixed the issue until it did it again. I had my airvana a year now and only had TXT problems 3 times. Didnt do it to every phone. I havent had my airvana plugged in for about 3 weeks now, it keeps dropping connection to the tower.

I have the 3G Airave and I just had someone tell me that my texts were repeating. They told me that it only repeated twice.
