Receiving Texts LATE

For about 2 weeks now I have been receiving text messages extremely late. An example is a friend messaged me on Friday at around noon and I didn't receive her text message until Saturday night at 8. At first I was told it was a location issue and that the area I live in was a "dead zone", but I was out all Saturday morning for hours and still didn't receive any of the messages until that night. Any troubleshooting I can do? I've already reset my phone plenty of times without the issue being resolved. The only solution I see is a new SIM card. I switched phones, from the S10+ to the S20 Ultra, last month and didn't have any problems until just recently.
