I just received 16 or so messages which had been sent from Jan 3rd at approx 5pm through to this morning, which all arrived suddenly at 10:24am this morning.

Some of these were important messages from people and one was a notification id hit 80% of my data usage. I can see the original timestamps on the messages.

Curiously I have received other text messages since then. This is mainly from people on telecom but at least one from 2degrees as well.

Anyone else get issues with texting over the past few days?

Going to contact Telecom support and ask them whats up, just curious if this was just me.

Edit: oh and my device is a Nexus 4. I've restarted it at least 3 times during this time period.

Sounds more like a one off issue and sms were pushed out from sms store all at once

It's possible there was a corrupt message that caused these messages to be queued up. 

As to your Mobile Broadband warning, check your usage on m.telecom.co.nz/yourtelecom and if you've gone over for the month, contact 123 for residential / consumer or 126 for business where they should be able to assist you in resolving this.

If someone is sending you a txt msg for IMPORTANT stuff, you should let them know that they should have called instead. Txt msg can be unreliable on any network.

Back to the issue, one of my friend with overseas phone number currently roaming in NZ also received my txt late. I sent her txt early Saturday morning and she received it 12 hours later.

contextually important, not IMPORTANT haha. Like arranging to meet someone, turns out they sent me a message that would have made things a little easier.

I'm not silly and rely on texts for actual IMPORTANT stuff.

My wife had something weird happen this evening while texting her sister-in-law.
They had been texting each other for a while when one of the texts my wife sent somehow got mixed in with a text she sent on new years eve, to her sister-in-law, so the first part of the message was part of the text from new years eve then the rest was some of the new test she had just typed and sent.
Not sure what happened there???
