Text Message Delayed (SMS) - Group text with other carriers and non-iphone users

I have an iphone 6 but have had this problem for awhile now even when I had my iphone 5.  I participate in several group messages with friends and several of them are on a different carrier and non-apple iphone.  Most of the time our messages are out of sync or delayed (sometimes several minutes to hours).  This morning I recieved 55 text messages all at once that were delayed over 20 hrs.  Yesterday, I powered my phone off twice to see if the messages would come in since one of my friends texted me to see why I was not responding to the group text but no luck.  My other friends are also experiencing the same issue in the group text.  What is the issue here?

I have had the same problem with group messages between carriers/iPhone/Android. I also participate in a few group messages and I have, for over the last 2 years, experienced message lag and lost messages from iPhone users that aren't also on AT&T. 2-3 days a week, my friends and I end up trading screen shots to make sure that everyone is up to speed.
