I am using @VTEXT.com to send text messages to my Verizon prepaid wireless phone number using e-mail.
However, there is often a long delay between sending the email and my receiving the text message. Sometimes it seems to be maybe half an hour, other times several hours.
I am sending the email to [email address removed per the Verizon Terms of Service] (replacing that number with my real number) from a Gmail email account. I have no problems with delays sending or receiving email with my Gmail account.
Can anyone help?
Hello, spidy2. We know how useful VText.com can be. We would be happy to help. When sending a VText through a Gmail account, the message may be delayed or blocked due the high volumes of malicious messages originating from the Gmail server. If you find the delay to be troublesome, we may recommend using another email account besides one from Gmail.
