Hi everyone !
I have had this issue since getting my Fairphone 3… Here is my post about it : Issues sending texts with default "Message" app
I intended to change operators but can’t be sure it will solve the issue (and I don’t want to change in vain since I’m on a family contract). My operator is also Orange @Wouthie (in Belgium).
A little while after closing my issue on the forum, I was finally able to get in touch with an IT at Orange and he explained that for some reason, my phone was trying to send messages through wifi/mobile data then failing and then sending the SMS, which would explain the lag in his opinion. Didn’t really help me though… I tried disabling the “chat” functions, and I also tried every possible combination of parameter for that finction : no help.
As stated in my old issue, I tried my card in another FP3 (same batch), and I had the same issue. So from all the info I could collect, I’m guessing it’s an issue between the way the FP3 tries to send the message and the way my operator is expecting to get it? I don’t know… I should mention that my prevous phone was a FP2 and I had no such issue.
I considered sending a report to Fairphone, but I’m afraid they’ll just tell me to change my SIM (been there, done that), or my operator.
I tried makin a bug report, but I lack the knowledge to understand what’s wrong from it.
Soooo yeah… I have no help to give, but I would love insights if anyone ends up fixing that issue ! I used to send SMS a lot, but I barely use them on this phone and honestly it’s very inconvenient in some situations
EDIT : forgot to mention I closed my issue because the problem was solved for about 24h, then it came back… no idea how or why
