This has been an issue for us on all our Samsung phones from Note 4 thru S8+ and S9... txt messages sent via Samsung's default Messaging app arrive many minutes or even hours later. This makes "instant messaging" useless when we're trying to locate one another or make plans with friends about where to meet. Mobile Data is on 100% of the time now that our plans are unlimited. FWIW, MeWe messaging works as it's supposed to, instantly...

sometimes in a group chat the messages will stop and I just have to wait until the phone decides to bring them in it's very frustrating

doesn't matter if I'm on wifi or not and doesn't matter if full signal or not just a weird thing that happens

I'm on a Factory Unlocked Galaxy S8 from the US store Best Buy and my carrier is verizon
