I have been having problems just of late. I tried *228 and it worked for only a couple of minutes. I called technical services but they couldn't do anything with me on the phone and I have no alternate phone where I am but it may be an actual phone issue rather than the network. If I figure anything out I will post more
Has anyone found the root cause and/or have a solution to this problem? I've had my iPhone for about 2 weeks now and in the last 5 days I've noticed a significant delay in sent and received messages of up to 24 hours. Sometimes it won't even let me send a message for hours. I have to keep retrying. It’s very irritating and once I didn’t receive an urgent message until it was too late. Thanks.
I've experienced this problem too. For this problem, I suspect Verizon more than the phone (although it could be a combination of the two). Our family has basic LG and Motorola phones. We have the problem with both brands. On one phone a text came 4 days later! I'm still waiting for a text that my wife sent to me 24 hours ago. The problem isn't consistent, which makes it difficult to trouble shoot. I'm calling Verizon to express my concerns.
I use messaging so much, and I would feel the same way if my messages were not being sent or received right away. I'd love to assist you with a resolution.
This is a forum for the iPhone 4S, and you mentioned you do not have a Smartphone, and are using feature phones on both lines, one being a Motorola and one being an LG. You did not mention the model of either device, but I can still assist you.
Feel free to send me a DM with your name, one of your mobile numbers, and a good contact number for you. I will be happy to reach out to you to address and resolve this issue.

My wife just got an iphone 4S about a month ago, and is having this problem for the last week. She is receiving messages an hour or two after people send them to her iphone, and the messages I receive from her have a future timestamp (i.e., I receive her text at 11AM and the text is timestamped 11:30AM, the future). Can someone please help, because messaging worked fine on the iphone 4S for three weeks, but now is lagging!!!
I noticed delayed text issue this week. I got a text message 24 or more hours after it was send. Normally this person doesn’t text during the time I received it. When I talked to him, he mentioned that he send the text a day ago. From my perspective, the delayed test happens from a NON iPhone from a Non Verizon network to an iPhone 4S on Verizon network.
I called the Verizon tech support and they went through resetting my iPhone and updating by dialing *228. I will wait and see if this issue persists.
