Text message issues

Every text I send this morning arrives with relevant person, they reply etc but then 10 minutes later I get a ping on my phone saying that the message could not be sent but it did.

It's doing my head in, any suggestions?

Check here for any local network issues O2 Service Status


If the problem persists, get a sim swap in your local o2 shop.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

It may also be worthwhile restarting your phone as it could just be an issue with one of the processes on the phone itself that needs reloading, had this kind of thing myself.
