    To the guy a couple comments up. U have to click on the buildings that show valentine cards, not $ signs. Some towns u can visit dont have them available.

    Since I started this tread last night, quick update. I woke up to 3 more people that I could visit. The about an hour ago I got one more. That person doesn't have any valentines cards in his town.

    So I'm at about 8 of 100 people now. And to the person above, deleting and then adding new friends is no the fix.

    Also, not a single person has visited me. Clearly another origin bug in my opinion. Last one took 2 or 3 days to fix I think.

    I tried last night to 'visit' and it said I need to update my content? I figured out this morning that all I had to do was to go to the app store and "update" my Simpson's Tapped Out app.. now all is well. :)

    I've got over 100 friends too and I'm putting this out there as most of them have not yet, updated their app.

    I don't think iOS 6 is the problem, I'm still on 5 and I have the same problem visiting people I know have upgraded, some of whom have been able to visit me and take Valentine action.

    I was one of the early adopters of the update downloaded from Apps store yesterday, and I've had it for about 20 hours now. I thought there might be an issue with EA Servers, but they've had plenty of time to synch now, so I don't think it's that.

    I'm using an iPad 2, could it be a conflict between device types, Im guessing most people are playing on smartphones? (Although Apple devices are supposed to running the same iOS, there must be differences at the Bios level).

    Unfortunately, until EA identify the issue and stick out a patch, we're lumbered with a half finished update. Do EA test anything before releasing to the user base?

    The device is not the problem I play on an Iphone 5 and ipad 1, got the same problems on both devices.

    "I am having the same issue and I have made an observation. The only friends I can visit are the ones who upgraded to the valentines edition BEFORE me. So when I updated - the only friends who I could visit were the two who messaged me about the update. My son then updated soon after me - I couldn't access him but he could access me.

    I'm guessing this is the bug!!"

    not the case with me, i had a friend that had the update before me but i couldnt get in hers when i got the update several hours later.

    Also with the valentine cards over the houses - it's luck of the draw on how many hearts you get - I guess it's a guessing game which buildings have a heart. I've had none, one or two hearts by clicking on my friends buildings but you get a heart everytime a person visits you!

    As for visiting friends springfields - I cannot find any discernible pattern, people just seem to open up - sometimes randomly, sometimes it's after they have visited me. I just think we all have to be patient and hope origin/EA fix it

    This is getting ridiculous!!

    Don't even understand why EA doesn't even comment on the matter!!

    Lots of people are having the same problem and it seems there is ALWAYS a problem after an update from EA!

    I too am having issues. Last night I was only able to visit about 5 friends. Today I was suddenly able to visit a handful more (some of which I had tried the previous night, but wouldn't let me in due to not being "updated" which was obviously wrong since I was getting Valentines from them!) However two of the ones I was able to visit today didn't let me send Valentines so they are either not updated or this is one of the issues.
    I am hopeful that this is being worked on though, since I was able to visit a few more towns today!

    I am using the Ipad 4 and have updated iOS to 6.1

    I can't seem to find a pattern either. I've added people off this very board who I know are updated but then it won't let me access theirs. I'm assuming the same is true in reverse for the people who have requested me.

    Here's hoping for a quick fix!

    I went on the EA website and filled out a trouble ticket. I've been assigned a case number, and "an EA game expert will contact me shortly". I'll post anything I hear on this board.
