Does Google Voice have Delayed Text Messaging Issues? stockmba 3/14/12 11:36 AM
I have been using Google Voice for some time now. When I first starting using the program I had complications with people receiving text messages two or three days after I had sent the original text. That problem went away after a few months. Now Google Voice is very much apart of my life style and work with using it on my phone, tablet, and PC. However, I have just recently started having the same delay issues. I will be forced to stop using this program if it continues because I need my text messages sent and received in the way they are intended. 

I would appreciate any information on this subject. Thank you for your time.

I don't know if my sent messages are ever delayed - but - I've had this problem receiving for months...first it seemed to be from one person, but then it spread to many of the people that I text with - and text for me, as it appears for you, is pretty "mission critical"...I have emailed Google and posted here - but - so far, no satisfaction - I will post here if I get a solution / answer from them - but - I'm not holding my breath...

I'm having the same issue.  Like you it was bad at first then got better.  Now its getting more frequent.

Yes Please let me know if you have any information. I was just discussing with a friend of mine at work that he has had this problem fairly regularly. He reminded me that this is a free service, but I think for a company like Google they should never settle for second best.

Please keep me posted on the status and frequency of your interruptions. Maybe if we can find that these are going on at the same time for all of us, maybe that information might be useful to Google to help fix it.

I also had this issue awhile ago and it recently started back up. At 3:55PM March 19th, the missing texts of the past few days sent out to everyone all at once.
Re: Does Google Voice have Delayed Text Messaging Issues? stockmba 3/19/12 1:36 PM
Mine happened in just the same way. My last encounter with this was May 14th at 12:47pm/

I won't receive texts for sometimes 4-5 hours later these last 2-3 days. I will have to cancel this if it continues.  Would love an answer.

Problem here too. I've had these text messages that I sent recently delayed:
sent 3/12/12 7:51 PM, appears to have been delivered 3/17/12 5:05 PM
sent 3/22/12 8:19 PM, appears to have been delivered 3/23/12 4:38 AM

The first was delayed five days. The second was delayed about 8 hours, delivered in the middle of the night, to which he replied at that point. This caused confusion because I asked in the text about "tomorrow", referring to Friday, but since it was delivered the next day he interpreted it as Saturday. Does google read these posts?

Sorry no information, just same problem as described by others; text I send are delivered hours to days later. Problem went away for a while and recently returned. Bumping in hopes Google acknowledges.

I have never encountered an issue with text messages from GV. However, although two different text messages were sent to the same mobile number yesterday and the person replied to both of them, I still haven't received either reply. I've been using GV since it was first available.

There is an issue.  I have had it occur with certain numbers that I text frequently.  The first time it happened I had to go into the default messaging application that came with it, expand the number of sms before removing them to 1000.  It worked for a couple of months.  It started again, I had to logout and remove google voice, force close the default messaging application and restart it.  It has worked so far.

For me the delays always seem to be with my sprint texting.  I have simply turned off my text notifications and turned on my Google Voice App notifications.  I use this app to send and receive texts.  There appear to be delays through the Google Voice app.

Hope this helps

Sorry, I meant NO delays through the Google Voice App

TM G2 - I use hte GV app, no integration with SMS.  I use this for work and it's pretty important, but I'm receiving text messages/voicemails several hours later than they are sent to me.  I have to either log into my gmail to find the voicemails or manually refresh.  I'd say it could be linked to my phone-sync but it's on an auto-sync setting.  This is getting really frustrating.  I haven't had problems sending messages since before the August 2011 update, just receiving them - and this has been over the last several months.

AM using GV integration with Sprint on a Mopho mobile phone. The text delays have come back, my texts take over a day to get to me. Any texts from web applications don't seem to work anymore, including the Google two-step security codes. The google voice app on my Ipad stopped working.. I seem to always end up on google+ like I am in a browser??..

Whats going on... seems everything google is starting to break.

I am having the same issue. On Sprint. I get messages hours sometimes day s later. Not all the time or from everyone. Nor is it consistent according to contact.

Experiencing it here as well, as are two of my coworkers. One text took 39 hours to get through!
Re: Does Google Voice have Delayed Text Messaging Issues? KonaPie 7/6/12 11:52 AM
I just got my phone - it's with Sprint and i've tried to delete the GV app and haven't been able too.  Now I can't receive any texts at all except through GV online.  I can send texts and they are received fine!  it's really frustrating.
Re: Does Google Voice have Delayed Text Messaging Issues? phillipshepard1 7/6/12 12:05 PM
Same Issue. I think it may because of my Sprint Service because it seems like Sprint Messages and GV messages come at the same time but I am in Wifi so I would assume GV would work well in Wifi. 
Re: Does Google Voice have Delayed Text Messaging Issues? Bertoes 7/30/12 7:05 AM
Both my wife and i have been experiencing delays in the last few weeks and especially this past weekend. Any help on this google?
Re: Does Google Voice have Delayed Text Messaging Issues? J_Iceman05 7/30/12 11:12 AM
I wonder if Google reads these... This issue has been continuing for a couple months now.  It's intermittent though.  Sometimes it's great. other times it takes a day or more to be delivered.  I seem to receive texts in a timely manner, at least as far as I can tell, but messages I send are often times very delayed.  This problem seems compounded / more prevalent with multiple recipients.  I'm about to be forced to jump ship if they can't get it fixed.

Is your phone service roaming?

Text message delivery can be delayed if you live in a densely populated area or if your carrier's infrastructure isn't well maintained. 

What happens if you use your phone in another cell tower location? Antenna Search http://www.antennasearch.com/default.asp

If phone is roaming, ask your carrier Technical support about Resend to Switch and rebooting phone. 

Are Unicode characters either in the message itself or in the name of the contact that you got the SMS from?

Google Voice text messaging doesn't support sending and receiving text messages from international numbers at this time.

Sending text messages from a website like Skype or Facebook to your Google number currently won't be received. This is because these websites treat text messages as though they are sending a text message to an email address, which Google Voice doesn’t support http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_SMS_gateways

This has no helpfulness period. When you go to the troubleshooting for google voice, it does absolutely NOTHING AND THEN YOU PAPA BEAR tell us to " GO TO http://www.google.com/support/voice/bin/request.py?contact_type=receiving_text_problem" which is back to square one. GOOGLE has NO SUPPORT for any products and never acknowledges a problem until every single one of their users has the same problem.

I'm having the same issue as everyone else on this forum.  It's a shame that such a magnificent product (voice) is so broken.
