Slow delivery of Texts from landline to mobile

Hi

 

Anyone else suffer from long delays from BT Landline to mobile (Orange, Vodafone and Tesco that I know of) when texting?  Seems to range from 2 to 8 hours and always exact hours from being sent.

 

Such delays negate using the service but mobile reception at home is minimal (strong on the reception end) hence the use of the landline.

 

Thanks

 

David

Thanks for posting dave1966uk. Sorry for the delay you are experiencing when sending texts from your landline. We can't guarantee delivery times for text messages as BT aren’t responsible for the entire Network that the text message crosses.

Cheers

I received a SMS text on my O2 handset 24 hours after it had been sent from a BT landline phone. Unfortunately not an isolated incident.

 

getting quite annoyed with it

As was posted earlier BT are not responsible for all the network that the message travels over
