Morning everyone, I just thought I'd ask a little question this morning regarding your mobile phones... Are any of you experiencing delayed text message delivery?

My number was a Nawras number, and then I ported to Omantel because Nawras were being.... difficult. This was years ago - then recently Omantel started cutting my phone off for exceeding my credit limit (we shall gloss over the 3 filled out forms I signed and submitted to increase my credit limit). Anyway, it seems that after finally getting my phone turned back on I am now not receiving text messages promptly any more - sometimes they come in as much as 12 hours later, but usually they come in grouped together every half an hour or so - very annoying if meeting up with people and there's a delay in receiving a text message.

Now I was just wondering, is there anyone else out there in Oman that's experiencing a delay in receiving their text messages? I hope I'm the only one!

More later... free tickets to give away!

Yesterday I was due to meet someone who didn't turn up as she did not receive my text message nor any others that afternoon...... when she finally arrived after I called her, she switched her phone off then back on again and the messages all came through at once. A link there perhaps?

My husband and I are with Omantel and often do not receive texts that people have sent from home or abroad. A fortnight ago I received four texts at once which were all a week old!

I am with Nawras, and in Dubai at the moment - connected to Du. I can make calls, and my emails are still coming through, but it won't let me send a text message at all - to either a Dubai or Oman number....

So glad we get to pay 1st world prices for the 3rd world product we get from the telecomms companies here.

I am with Nawras and have been having the same problem for a couple of months. My txts are delayed but also some friends I cannot contact via txt at all. They are random numbers, some with Nawras some with Omantel. Nawras have been unable to fix it.

I am with Omantel, and suffer delayed texts in country regularly and to/from abroad either delayed or never reaching. This has been happening for months now and as usual no proper response from Omantel when asked for an explanation.

I'm with Nawras and this is nothing new! It's been going on for the past year.

I note that this has been happening for the past year. Is this delay in any way connected to censorship?
