    Hi everyone

    overnight ive noticed a problem with my (3 days old) OP2

    when i want to send a text message/SMS it can take over a minute before it sends.
    Sometimes it sends the message directly but other times it says "sending" for quite a long time.

    I find this very irritating and i wanted to know if someone also noticed this problem?

    Im using the default messenger app btw

    Hows your reception, might be a bad connection or a busy network causing this as well.

    strange: text messaging is going very slowly sometimes but mobile data is as fast as normal...

    i have noticed this as well... one word messages (ok, lol, yes, etc.) go through quickly. but longer ones say sending for ages. super long ones almost always fail. It is a little annoying frankly. I don't think it is a network problem in my case because i switched out the sim from my OP2 to OP1 and the messages were just fine. Also, this has come up after the latest update update. It was working fine before the update.

    I second this. I have the same issue. Oneplus 3 takes 3-5 minutes to send an SMS. Should I write to Oneplus company or what?

    This problem still persists in the OP3T (OxygenOS 3.5.3).
    I was wondering if this was my carrier's problem, but since there's more people with other models and from other countries, I'm starting to think this is really an annoying bug that affects many people.

    I have this issue with my OP3. I use ChompSMS and usually the messaging works fine, but every few hours or once a day I'll have a message that takes up to a minute to send. It seems to be unrelated to the length of the message. The other day I sent a photo to a friend, I had full service and data and he received it 4 hours after I sent it. I don't know what the issue is.

    Same here with OP5. Texts got statistically slower to send recently. Sometimes it goes through instantly, but other times, when it hangs, it can be for ages ! Additional secondary server, specific to oneplus, where they must go through, perhaps?

    I have a similar problem...I only text with one person, and short one or two line texts go through instantly. But lengthy texts take ages to deliver, sometimes more then five minutes. Because of the issue, switched to Google's messaging app, but the issue is still there. Any advice, please? Judy got the phone two days ago.
