Jennielaine, I appreciate the details you've provided and I know how important it is to ensure that you are able to receive your texts properly. Help is here. To clarify, are you receiving delayed text messages from a specific number, or all numbers? Have you tried uninstalling, then reinstalling the Verizon Messages app? Instructions for uninstalling an app are available here: Looking forward to hearing back.
