Has anyone else noticed that texts are quite slow in being delivered lately? Sometimes many hours after a message was left. This useful and surprisingly little advertised facility is one of the few reasons I have kept subscribing to the 1571 messaging service, to get an alert and pick up a message left on my landline from my mobile.
I am on Vodafone with an iPhone although our number was originally Cellnet (that ages me!) an 07803 number. It has worked fine for a long time but only recently gets delayed by some hours sometimes. Not always though. Many many years ago before I retired from "The Department" (Ages me even more!) there was an issue with texts getting stuck between providers, so each was saying our bit is OK. It got sorted eventually when someone decided it was a challenge to sort. The problem seems in part that it is a feature not well used, because no one knows about it!
