    Default Outbound texts seriously delayed - phone or carrier?

    I've had a few people receive my texts late, but have always thought the issue was more likely them just not seeing the notifications. But then one took 2 days to arrive on a friend's phone! We're both on Android (I'm on a Nexus 4 running Kit Kat), though I'm on Telus and I believe he's on Wind Mobile. As an FYI, the day of the 2-day-delay I was using Handcent as my SMS app, but in the past I was using the stock SMS app.

    So the key question at the moment is - is the extra delay caused by my SMS app, my OS/phone or my carrier? Any idea how to test for this?

    TIA - R.

    I would be shocked if it's not the carrier. This happens to my buddy every once in awhile. He's on at&t which is a very average carrier in our area.
