My wife texted me yesterday asking for some info. I sent it. 5 hours later, she came home asking why I ignore her text messages.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is aware there’s a bug regarding text messages in iOS 7 (particularly, with iMessages).
If you want to fix it now you can either restart your phone, or (MAKE SURE YOU KNOW YOUR WIFI PASSWORD, AS THIS RESETS THEM ALL):
- Turn off iMessaging (Settings -> Messages, then toggle “iMessage” off)
- Rest your network settings (Settings -> General – > Reset, then click on “Reset Network Settings”)
- Your iPhone will restart
- Turn iMessaging back on (Settings -> Messages, then toggle “iMessage” on)
Remember you just reset your network settings, so you will have to re-enter your WiFi passwords etc.
