***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
Delayed Text Messages

Our company uses SMS messages for network alarm notifications.  Until several months ago, the service worked perfectly and messages were delivered within seconds of the server sending them.  Sometime in the past year or two, message delays have become a huge problem for us.  We have done extensive troubleshooting and the messages are being sent to Verizon, but are not delivered to our phones until hours later.  In fact, I just received about 100 messages that were sent from the server over 18 hours ago.  (100 messages at a time is not an uncommon occurrence for us)

I'm guessing nobody in the community has a fix for this, but I'm hoping to get the attention of a Verizon tech to help out.

Employees us a mixture of phones (Pixel, Galaxy, etc) and a mixture of apps (Verizon Messages, Google, etc), all with the same result.
