    Default Delay in receiving SMS

    Hi all

    My girlfriend has a Samsung Galaxy S2 on Vodafone UK and I have an iPhone 5S on Three UK. Whenever she sends me an SMS, it can take upwards of five hours for me to receive it.

    It doesn't appear to me that any of my other contacts are affected in this way, just her.

    She doesn't text many people and those she does text were never the speediest of responders anyway. We're seeing some of them in a couple of weeks so we will ask them if they can indicate what time they are receiving her texts and we'll compare it against the time she sent them to see if it's her device at fault.

    In the meantime, can anyone offer any other reasons why Vodafone to Three, Android to iPhone SMS could be taking so long to arrive and offer any suggestions a to what we can do to rectify this please?

    I've posted this on Android Central too in the hopes that between us we can get to the bottom of this.

    You may have to check it with your cellular provider. Have you tried to switch to other cellular providers?

    hth, thanks!
