    I actually just started having this issue but it seems to only happen sometimes - sometimes I get messages right on the dot - sometimes I don't. It's probably the only thing that really irks me.

    I have 2 theories:

    Either the MS servers are getting more traffic than they thought
    or
    The phone's app manager is preventing facebook from updating quick enough

    I think it's the first one because all my other apps get notifications fine.

    i wonder if it's possible to have a facebook messenger wrapper app just for messages like they do for the facebook mobile site. if so i would be interested in using that app as long as it gave push notifications reliably for new messages.

    What I've done is turn on Facebook mobile. So whenever messenger fails to deliver me the message, facebook mobile sends me that message as a text which I can reply free of charge as I do have unlimited texts in my bundle. Facebook mobile also sends you texts from group chats and you can respond to those as well. Worth setting it up as a back up if you have unlimited to huge number of texts in allowances.

    Yes it does send you a text from number like 342955 or random number per person. You get it as a text and reply like a normal text.
