Using a Samsung Galaxy S7,

When someone send me a text message (sms), I often receive it several tens of minutes late, sometimes even a few hours late.

For instance:

Other: - We're going to the cinema tonight, wanna join?*
Other: - Come on join us!
Me: - Where?

*For instance I receive this message 1 hours later so this is kinda annoying.

I first suspected a contact failure of my sim card but it doesn't seem to me that this is the case

    Are you sure you are talking about SMS and not some 3rd party instant messenger? Your mobile network operator is responsible for SMS. You can verify this by using a different phone, it should not have an effect on the delivery time of your SMS. – Robert May 11 at 14:11
  • Yes, I'm actually talking about sms. – Ced May 11 at 14:25
  • Are you using a 3rd party SMS app just in case? – singhnsk May 11 at 19:26
  • @singhnsk I tried both samsung default messaging app and google's one. If I can provide more details I'll be glad to help. – Ced May 11 at 19:57
