Re: Text message lag iPhone

Is WiFi Calling enabled or disabled?

Can you turn it off for a period of time, and see if you have the same problem?

If you need WiFi Calling then yes but others have reported that it can delay texts.

Not sure why that it is, so you may want to manage when WiFi Calling is on rather than having it on always.

Re: Text message lag iPhone

Just a follow up on the issues you are having. When I was on Virgin I used to have a 12 hour lag when it came to receiving texts via Wifi calling. Virgin fail to admit they have an issue so I ended up leaving them. 

If you have signal where you live, it’s probably best disabling WiFi calling. If you rely on it for a service (like I did) it may be worth considering a switch to a different provider when your contract comes to an end.
