Text Message (Groups) Delays
I have been having problems for over a year with group text messages being delayed (not always). I can receive over 100 messages in a single shot, sometimes 12-24 hours later than when they were sent. The problems have significantly worsened over the last month or so. I use my phone for business, and missed a group text message last week that was canceling a meeting, so I was the only one that showed up. The message was sent at 9:15am, and I received it finally at 8:45pm.
I tried calling AT&T for assistance, but because the rep was successfully able to send me a text, she said the problem was with my iPhone (iPhone 8), and not AT&T. The problem I have with her response is that I know of other AT&T customers who use other devices and have the same problem. In fact, I work with AT&T for my business and we received a written warning about a month ago saying AT&T was changing how they handled text messaging and that it could result in significant delays on receipt. The rep I spoke with today said AT&T hasn't made any changes and that the problem was a "known issue with iPhones and that Apple is aware of it and actively working on the problem." I'm skeptical at best.
Any other thoughts?
