Texts in from my girlfriend on Telus are sometimes coming in slow, sometimes 10 - 15 minutes. Some are instant. Texts out to her are instant.

What about texts from others are they slow as well or just from your girlfriend or other Telus customers ?
Try while the device is on taking out the battery then SIM Card for a minute or so then replace them and try it again.

Sorry don't know if it prompts you if I've replied the way I did, but my response is below:

I have only tested it with her. I got my SIM card from Koodo at around 7pm EST tonight, we were testing phone calls and texting at around 10:30pm EST. I kept my old number from Bell, my Bell service was scheduled to end at midnight tonight. Is it normal to receive some delay in texts when service is that new? I have gotten an error a few times since I put the Koodo SIM card into the phone, "ME returned a temporary error." I would love to know what this error means, and if it is related to my issue.

Could be because of porting your number over, give it a full day and if the battery and Sim pull doesn't fix it then give tech support a call. If it's only with your girlfriend after trying with others then she might have to call Telus tech support.
