Incoming SMS delayed

Anyone else experiencing delays in receiving SMS text messages lately?


Been user of Koodo for many years. Using current phone since more than 1 year, problem started to occur in the last few weeks where sporadically the incoming texts can take a long time to be received (like many hours).

Phone is Android but problem will occur when the other person is either iPhone or Android. Even sending a text to myself will be delayed.

Rebooting the phone and/or removing/replacing the SIM card has no positive impact on fixing. 

I've looked at similar threads and it seems there never was a clear explanation on why this happens.

There's several reasons whether it's back end overloading or local towers being busy or some unknown thing as there's been times where it's affected me but only specific people etc.
