Will sending a group text from my mobile take longer ?
There is not usually any difference in the time it takes to send a Group Text via mobile . However a number of variables are at play, the length of time from your mobile network to our servers, and then from our servers to the mobile networks and from there to the recipients. The mobile networks do not offer guaranteed delivery times and delays of up to 40 minutes are not uncommon. There may also be a delay if the recipent mobile is switched off.
