Try reprogramming the phone to the Verizon Wireless network.  Dial *228, option 1

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Chikita_ilse, I use text messaging all the time to stay connected to family and friends and would hate for it not to work properly so I can definitely understand your frustration. But don’t worry because I’m here to help!

Are you using the standard text messaging or iMessaging? Are all your text messages delayed? Does it happen with all text or only ones to certain contacts?

If you are using the standard text messaging make sure the iMessaging is disabled  Also, make sure the WiFi is turned off. Something else you can try is to reset the network settings on your device and then update by dialing *228 send and selecting option 2 to update. Retest and keep us posted.
