Texting unreliable

Tuning in

On a regular basis texts sent or received by myself and my daughter (both on VM mobile) either don't get delivered at all or are delivered a day or more after sending! My wife is on Tesco mobile and has just received a message from my daughter sent yesterday. Why is it so unreliable?

Hey Colchesterguide,

Welcome back to the community and thanks for taking the time to post.
I’m sorry to hear of the issues that you and your daughter are having with your text messages.

When did the issues start?

Do you have any signal issues at all? Do you have signal, when the messages are being sent?

Do the issues happen in any particular location or various?

Have either or both of you been sent any new sim cards recently?

Kind Regards,



I've not noticed any specific pattern when it fails, although often the delayed messages seem to arrive once a WiFi connection becomes available. No the sim cards we are using have been unchanged for several years. 

Hey Colchesterguide, thank you for confirming.

I am going to send you a PM to take a look at this in more details, please look out for the purple envelope. Thanks
