Delayed text messages after being unblocked?

Recently I unblocked someone from sending me text messages and ever since then if they send me a text it may go through immediately or it may take anywhere up to an hour to receive. I have this problem with no other person and nor does the sender. If they try to call after a text shows as sent, but not delivered, there's a delay, but then it rings twice and goes to voicemail. I never receive the call on my end. This has been going on for about a week we've both cleared our cache, settings, and restarted both phones. We each have a pixel.


Any advice short of resetting the phone to factory default? And if that's the only option, which one should do the resetting?

It is important that you are able to text. Was the number blocked anywhere else?
