My friend (who texts me a lot of pictures of his kids) sent me a barrage of pictures and one video. Ever since then, texting him is excruciatingly slow. These things happen:
- Just getting our text thread to open takes much longer.
- When typing, some words get stuck and I have to wait until the word is completed.
- When I do get the text written and hit send, the message disappears for a little while, then it appears, but as not sent yet, and then after 30 seconds, finally sends.
Texting all other people is just as quick as it ever was.
I'm wondering if it's because I've got so many pictures in the thread? Can't think of anything else.
I'm deleting some pictures, to see if it helps, and I think I might try clearing the app's cache, but I'm not sure what that does.
