Ever since joining VM back in September 2018 when I send an iMessage there is a delay of around 2-3 minutes in the message being sent and the blue bar at the top slowly moves across. This doesn’t happen when I am on WiFi and only seems to happen when I am on 4G or mobile data.
I have spoke with Apple support and it isn’t something at their end as they have done extensive troubleshooting but to no avail. I am using an Apple iPhone XR
I joined Virgin a few months ago from 02 having been with them for over 12 years simply due to your 4G speeds being way better. However since day 1 I have been having issues with mobile data. If I don't use my phone for a while it seems mobile data goes to sleep and takes around a minute to connect back again. This has now become very frustrating, my messages are coming late via iMessage and whatsapp etc. push notifications not coming on time.
Can this please be looked at, I have seen another thread similar to this and seems like it has not been resolved.
This has popped up a couple of times, something I've never had a problem with though.
Can only suggest checking if you have any battery saving mode switched on, any data saving mode switched on, maybe also try putting your phone in Safe Mode as a test - so any 3rd party app can be ruled out.

Can you try and do something for me please? Can you completely back up your phone so you don't lose anything and then once that is done, can you do a full factory reset. When you set the phone up don't reload all your information, just go into the phone as new. And tell me what happens from there?

any luck with your sim? I recently bought the iPhone XS Max, still the same delayed annoying issue, even got a new sim sent from them. I got a few mates on virgin but they don't have this issue at all.
